A 7-year-old boy from Oklahoma was mauled to death by a family dog last week, local authorities say.

The boy, identified by KOCO and family as James McNeelis, was reported missing on Oct. 20 around 7:20 p.m. from his home south of Kiefer, less than 15 miles south of Tulsa, the Creek County Sheriff’s Office said in a statement. When authorities arrived on the scene, a family member of McNeelis located him on the property.

“The child was pronounced deceased at approximately 7:35 pm. The preliminary investigation indicates the child was attacked by a family pet (dog),” the statement read.

Officers said the child’s death is being investigated alongside the state’s medical examiner. The Creek County Sheriff’s Office did not immediately respond to USA TODAY’s request to comment.
