Body of Va. boy missing since Sunday found in septic tank

DUBLIN, Va. (AP) -- Authorities say the body of a 5-year-old Virginia boy who had been missing since Sunday has been found in a septic tank near his home.

Pulaski County Sheriff Jim Davis announced the discovery Thursday during a brief news conference.
