Australia: Three-year-old girl found dead in stormwater drain - as man is charged with manslaughter

A missing three-year-old girl has been found dead in a stormwater drain - with a 27-year-old man charged with manslaughter.

The girl and a two-year-old boy from Kelso in Townsville were reported missing to police at 6:40pm on Saturday evening, sparking a desperate search for the children.

She was rushed to Townsville University Hospital where she was pronounced dead.

The man has been charged with one count each of manslaughter, endangering children by exposure and drive under the influence of a drug.

He is known to the children. 

The two-year-old boy was found wandering the streets shortly after the young children were reported missing. 

The man will face Townsville Magistrates Court tomorrow after being denied bail. 

More to come.
