GREENWOOD, Ind. -- Search crews found the body of a missing 5-year-old boy in a pond near his home in Greenwood over the weekend.

The Indianapolis Fire Department, Urban Search and Rescue, Indianapolis Police Department and K-9 officers spent hours searching the area around Perry Meridian High School before finding Andrew Khyang's body in a pond around 7 p.m.

Since the incident, people have poured in heartfelt concerns to Khyang's family and the Cornerstone Autism Center in Greenwood. Many people have been asking for ways to donate to the family to help during this difficult time.

Cornerstone Autism Center responded on Facebook with a way people can assist, posting that anyone interested in helping the family should visit the foundation’s website.

The site offers a donate button and the ability to add instructions on how they wish their funds to be allocated. A special note should state the funds should go to Khyang's family.

Cornerstone Autism Center are also welcoming anyone who would like to drop off a check (made out to Cornerstone Autism Foundation) at any of their centers. 

Staff said they also have a plan for a fundraiser.

"It is our privilege to dedicate the proceeds of our Annual David Ide Memorial Run, that will be taking place this Saturday, to the Khyang family. We would love to see you there supporting an incredible cause! Once again, we are overwhelmed at the incredibly supportive community we are proud to be part of," Cornerstone posted on Facebook.
