KITTY HAWK, N.C. (WAVY) – The body of a 4-year-old boy who was swept away in the surf at Kitty Hawk was found Monday, according to police.

Kitty Hawk police said in a Facebook post that the boy, identified as Wesley Belisle, was found around 7:40 a.m. by the Currituck County Sheriff’s Office on Carova Beach. The boy’s family was notified, and police said arrangements were being made to return Belisle’s body to New Hampshire.

We hope that the outpouring of compassion and offers of support, thoughts and prayers to the Belisle family from people all over the world can bring them some amount of solace in this time of tremendous grief.”
