Two-year-old girl dies after being rescued from 'stolen' auto found in river

Kiara Moore was found in her mother Kim Rowland's silver Mini which had rolled into the River Teifi in Cardigan Wales

Kiara Moore died at the University Hospital of Wales after rescuers recovered her from a silver Mini which had plunged into the River Teifi in Cardigan. No signs. So we thought she and the vehicle had been taken.

"Thank you all so much for the support it means the world!"

He also thanked officers who "jumped in the river and the rest of the emergency services for all they did".

Officers had received a call about the missing Mini at 3.30pm on Monday and it was found just after 5pm.

Kiara was found in the auto in the river following a huge social media appeal yesterday afternoon in which a woman said her silver Mini had gone missing with her daughter inside. "Kiara's family is being supported by specialist officers". She would have turned three next Tuesday.

However her father, Jet, has since confirmed that the auto rolled into the river when Kiara's mum jumped out to get money from her office.

Tonight, Kim's partner Jet Moore confirmed she had died, writing that she had "an wonderful but short life".

Dozens of people posted messages of condolence on Facebook to Mr Moore and Kim Rowlands, Kiara's mother.

The couple runs an outdoor pursuits business, Adventure Beyond, which has a booking office at the old scout hall near the river, next to where the auto was last seen.

Tributes have been flooding in for Kiara on social media following the tragedy.


Jet confirmed the story on Facebook, writing: "They got in the auto to go home".

"She was always playing out here with her little dog".

It is believed Kim parked the auto on the slipway alongside it and ran inside to grab some cash after breaking her bank card.

"I'd often see them taking Kiara out on the river in a canoe".

'They tried to revive her for hours but unfortunately could not.

"My heart goes out to you and your family, sending all my love".

"Police are investigating the circumstances surrounding this tragic incident and are appealing for witnesses who may have seen the silver Mini enter the river between 3.30pm and 4.50pm on the afternoon of Monday, 19th March".

At present there is no information about who may have been in charge of the vehicle before it went into the river.

Cops later found it submerged in the river and emergency crews worked to free the stricken tot from the wreckage before she was flown to hospital.
