TAMPA, Fla. -- Tampa Police Divers have recovered the body of Armani Pierce in the Hillsborough River.

The 2 year old had been missing since about 8:30 Tuesday night.

Police say it all started when the boy ran off as his family was heading to their car after watching football and cheerleading practice at Temple Crest Park. The park is on 37th Street North, just south of Busch Gardens.

The Hillsborough River is right next to the park where Armani vanished.

Andrea Davis with the Tampa Police Department said just about every available officer took part in the search for the 2-year-old late Tuesday night and into early Wednesday morning.
