Searchers in Sioux County still haven’t given up on finding a child who has been missing for three months now. A new search will be made this week for a 4-year-old boy who’s presumed to have drowned in Willow Creek, near Alton, back on May 22. Authorities say Breiton Ackerman of rural Alton was with his father and other family members who were fishing from a cement bridge in a farm field. Breiton’s father thought the child might have fallen off the north side of the bridge. Sioux County Sheriff Dan Altena says volunteers from Sioux County fire and rescue crews will come out to conduct the search on Wednesday. They decided to try again, he says, because this time of year the water’s low in Willow Creek and the Floyd River. They’ll bring in a dive team, K-9 search and rescue team, and officers from Plyumouth County Sheriff’s office and the LeMars police department.
