The search for a 10-year-old boy who was swept away by rain waters, has been suspended due to poor visibility.

The boy was washed away by heavy waters close to August Town in St. Andrew.

In a statement on Twitter, the Constabulary said it’s coordinating the search with the Fire Department and members of the community.

But poor visibility forced the search party to abandon their efforts.

It’s understood a power outage in the area contributed to the poor visibility.

The incident reportedly happened between Hermitage and Goldsmith Villa in August Town.

The boy was reportedly taking a short cut when he was swept away.

The search for the missing child is expected to continue once visibility improves.
