(BANT) – A missing one-year-old girl who drowned in a swimming pool Sunday afternoon in Concord has been identified as Molly Scott from Walnut Creek, according to the Contra Costa County coroner’s office.

Police say they got a call at 4:43 p.m. from a home in the 2100 block of Leland Way reporting a missing one-year-old female child.

Officers arrived and joined family members in searching the area for several minutes before the child was found unconscious in a swimming pool at a relative’s home nearby. Officers performed CPR until paramedics arrived. The child was taken to a local hospital where she was later pronounced dead.

Concord police Corporal Chris Blakely says the in-ground pool was surrounded by a 5 to 6-foot tall fence. He says they do not yet know how the child got into the pool area.

Anyone with information is asked to call Concord police Det. Kyle Colvin at (925) 603-5856.
