A 4-year-old boy in Utah who had been missing since late Saturday was found dead in a toy box in his bedroom in what authorities call a tragic suffocation.
According to police investigators, it appears that the boy crawled into his toy box and suffocated there.
Kache Wallis was last seen alive Saturday night in Hurricane City, Utah, when his grandmother tucked him into his bed and said goodnight.
When she went to see him on Sunday morning, Kache wasn’t in his bed. Investigators did not name his grandmother.
Family and friends searched the house before calling police to report the child missing on Sunday. When the police arrived at the house, they searched the house before expanding the search to the community.
When the child was not found, the police decided to conduct a third search of the house, when Kache’s body was discovered later Sunday in a small toy box in his bedroom.
Kache Wallis, 4, was found suffocated in his toy box after being reported missing over the weekend. Death is ruled an accident.

Hurricane City Police released a pronunciation concluded on Wednesday that “following interviews with the family and additional cause of death investigation by the Utah Medical Examiner’s Office, this was determined to be an accidental death due to positional asphyxiation.”
Hurricane City Police declined to provide further details to DailyMail.com.
A GoFundMe page was created to help the grieving family with funeral expenses.
The creator of the page, Sarah Jones, wrote that ‘Kache had a contagious smile and loved everyone wherever he went, and she loved him too! “My name is Kache with K” he would say. He was the glue that held everything together for us, we just don’t know what we’re going to do without him.’ It’s not immediately clear that Jones’ relationship is with the boy.
He will be in our hearts forever! We love you Bubba! And we will miss you!’
