Body of missing 4-year-old Hopkins boy found in Minnehaha Creek, police say

The body of a missing 4-year-old boy was found Monday morning in Minnehaha Creek after an intensive search, Hopkins police said.

Law enforcement confirmed the body to be that of Waeys Ali Mohamed, who was last seen Sunday morning, Hopkins police Capt. Craig Kreiling said Monday at a news conference. The boy's body was found in the creek around 10:40 a.m. about 500 yards downstream from his family's apartment building by a volunteer assisting with the search effort, Kreiling said.

Kreiling extended his condolences to both Waeys' family and Hopkins' Somali community. While there is an active investigation, evidence points to this being a "tragic accident" where the boy left the apartment building on his own, Kreiling said.
