JOPLIN, Mo. (AP) -- Authorities have identified the body of a toddler whose disappearance in the Joplin tornado drew an outpouring of concern when it was posted on Facebook.
  
His mother, Carol Jo Tate, told The Associated Press Wednesday that the body of 16-month-old Skyular Logsdon was identified at the morgue handling tornado victims.
  
More than 10,000 people supported a "Bring Skyular Logsdon home" page set up after the boy vanished in Sunday's tornado.
  
Tate, 18, remains hospitalized with severe injuries at Via Christi Hospital in Pittsburg, Kan.
