Emrie Schandorf-Woode Wiki – Emrie Schandorf-Woode Biography
Emrie Schandorf-Woode was an Ohio missing girl. The search for a missing Emrie in Ohio has ended tragically, with the discovery of her body in a pond near her home.
Emrie was reported missing on Sunday after she is believed to have wandered away from her family’s home in Hamilton Township. Emrie, whose last name has not been made public, was captured on Ring doorbell video at about noon Sunday walking barefoot down the driveway of her home.
She was 4 years old.
She was last seen in the Turning Leaf subdivision around 12:30 p.m. Police had searched the area with K-9s, drones and on foot.
“Just before 8:00 the dive team and the folks in the boats were scanning around the outside of the pond near where the rocks were and, unfortunately, they found Emrie’s body there in the pond,” Hamilton Twp. Police Chief Scott Hughes said.
The search lasted for roughly eight hours. Residents had been asked to check any cameras they might have and to call 911.
After her body was found, Hughes fighting tears, said: “This, this sucks, right? This just sucks. I mean, she was, she was four years old. There’s nothing really you can say.”
The Hamilton Twp. police department held a press conference around 4:45 p.m. They said the young girl was still missing. Police said they have security camera footage that shows her walking away from her driveway with no shoes on.
Police said then they were searching a pond behind the family’s home. The Turning Leaf Way subdivision is located off of U.S. 22/3 near the Countryside YMCA Maineville.
Hamilton Township Police Chief Scott Hughes said dive teams found Emrie Schandorf-Woode just before 8 p.m. Sunday.
“Our worst fears came true,” Hughes said. “This is not the way we had hoped things would turn out.”
Hughes says teams were searching on the outer edge of the pond when they found her.
Police say Emrie liked to come to a nearby pond to feed the fish. They say a witness placed her in the area of the pond, which is why they focused their search there.
