TOPEKA, KS (WIBW) -

Topeka police responded to the 800 block of SE Carnahan just after 8 Saturday night on a report of a missing 2-year-old female child.

Officers began searching the immediate area of the child's residence. The child was found dead in the yard of the residence.

TPD says the child had been a victim of an animal attack. The Animal Control Unit seized two dogs.

TPD says this incident poses no risk to the public, as the child and animals were within a fenced yard area of the involved residence.

This is a developing story and we will provide more details when they become available.
