MASCOUTAH, Ill.—Funeral arrangements are set for a 5-year-old St. Clair County boy who authorities say drowned in a Colorado pond while he was with his family.

Authorities say Colt Meurer of Mascoutah went missing last Thursday morning after being last seen with two older brothers on a dock of a pond in northwestern Colorado, near the border of Eagle and Routt counties.

A diver found him later, and the boy was flown by the Colorado National Guard to a Vail hospital where he died.

Funeral home visitation will be from 4 to 8 p.m. Thursday at Moll Funeral home in Mascoutah.
