Hamilton police are investigating the death of a three-year-old girl in a conservation area

Police are continuing an investigation into the death of a three-year-old girl who first went missing on Saturday from a conservation area south of Hamilton.

Hamilton Police say Zahra Ousmane and her family were visiting Binbrook Conservation Area with a large group when they realized at some point that she was missing.

Police said the family searched the area before contacting police shortly after 6 p.m.

The three-year-old girl was found in the water by kayakers around 7:50 p.m. and taken to hospital, where she was pronounced dead a short time later.

Hamilton police are not currently considering the girl’s death to be suspicious.

Detectives are appealing to anyone who saw her between 5 and 7 p.m. or took video in the area to come forward.
