PEASTICKS, Ky. (WKYT) – An emergency scene is underway right now along a flooded road near the Salt Lick community in Bath County.

Kentucky State Police say five children in an Amish family went missing Wednesday just before 5 p.m. after trying to cross a low-lying stream in their carriage.

An adult has been accounted for and four of the children have been found and pronounced dead. One of the children was still missing as of 1 a.m. Thursday.

Multiple units and emergency crews have converged along Adams Road, just north of Interstate 64.

Crews are working along the banks of a creek next to a washed-out road. Helicopters were called in for the search, and people used flashlights to scour the area.

KSP says the horse pulling the buggy lost its footing and slipped. Six people were in the carriage.
