What should have been a day of celebration turned into a tragedy when the 6-year-old boy went missing during a birthday party. The search operations lasted for three hours before the child was finally located.
Brantley Griffin was one of the 75 children present at the birthday party held in a large resort with pools fed by natural springs and outdoor playgrounds.
This resort was popular for birthday celebrations and significant gatherings. It featured a pavilion, several cabins, a kitchen, and a swimming area, all surrounded by trees and bushes. Around three in the afternoon, Brantley’s family noticed he was missing among the children playing on the playgrounds or swimming in the pools. Concerned, they alerted other party attendees and the hotel staff to help search for the child.
