The child's name and age have not been officially released, but the family confirms it was that of 4-year-old Destiny Shrum. She and three other members of her family were swept away by flood waters while hiding with their relatives in a storm drain under S.W. 15th Street near the Dell plant.

A 6-month-old child is still listed as missing.
