Leicestershire Police says officers will resume the search for a missing two-year-old who fell into the River Soar.

Emergency services were called to the river bank at Aylestone Meadows, close to Marsden Lane on Sunday evening (18 Feb). Officers attended the scene just after 5pm and a search and rescue operation began but the child was not found. 

A man was taken to hospital as a precautionary measure.

Leicestershire Police said an operation is ongoing and will continue with additional specialist teams.

“The child’s family are being supported by specialist officers and our thoughts are with them at this extremely difficult time.”

Police have urged members of the public to not go to the area where the search is taking place due to rising water levels and safety risks. 

“If anyone has any information or comes across anything that may assist officers, they are asked to contact us immediately.”
