UPDATE: Missing 5-year old TN boy's body found in pond
He disappeared from his home around 12:30 p.m. Wednesday. It set off a large search and rescue operation near his home in Anderson County.
Authorities said search and rescue dogs led them to a pond near Fitton's home. Divers then went in and located his body. According to authorities, it appears he drowned.
Mark Lucas of the Anderson County Sheriff's Department said in a statement early Thursday that there were 100 people involved in the search, which included multiple law enforcement agencies.
"Our thanks to the community and the neighbors who came to assist as well," Lucas said. "We also wish to thank the many others who came and were standing by, ready and willing to help if needed."
