A missing toddler who wandered away from her Florida home was found dead in a lake just hours after she vanished, according to authorities.

The search for two-year-old Lorie Thermidor began Friday around 3:30pm near Redwood Point Drive in Tampa.

She was last seen wearing a pink onesie with grey polka dots.

It's possible Lorie left home and accidentally walked into a wooded area located nearby,' police said.

An intense search for Lorie quickly sparked, with officers and dozens of volunteers combing the area for leads.

Two bloodhounds and a police helicopter aided in the search, Tampa Bay Times reports.

Additionally, divers were sent to search a lake across from the family's home.

That's where authorities found the body of the little girl around 8:30pm that evening.

'Sadly, the child was found in the lake deceased,' authorities said in a Facebook post.

The comment section has since flooded with condolences and prayers for the family.

No additional details about the incident were released by authorities.
