DUNCAN, Okla. – An Oklahoma family is planning a memorial after an 8-year-old boy’s body was found 14 days after he was reported missing.

Damion Alexander Davidson, who had autism, went missing from his home sometime after 2 a.m. on June 12th.

It was storming that morning and his parents told authorities they believe he left the house because he likes thunderstorms.

Authorities believe Damion was swept away in flood waters while he was trying to cross a bridge.

Thousands of volunteers and multiple law enforcement agencies searched for Damion for 14 days.

On Saturday, June 25th, the Duncan Police Department announced that the child’s body was found in Claridy Creek underneath storm debris.

A private family funeral service will be held this Friday; however, the family is also holding a public memorial service on Saturday, July 9th at 10 a.m. at the Fuqua Park Gazebo in Duncan.

Online condolences can be made to the family here.
