A 16-month-old boy who disappeared in Sunday’s powerful tornado in Joplin, Mo., has been found dead.

More than 11,000 people joined a “Bring Skyular Logsdon home” page on Facebook, but the toddler’s 18-year-old mother, Carol Jo Tate, confirmed Wednesday rescuers had found his body.

Tate herself was seriously hurt in the tornado, which killed at least 125 people and injured 900.

At least 15 people died Tuedsay in another set of tornadoes in Arkansas, Oklahoma and Kansas.

And on Wednesday, the National Weather Service warned residents in states from Texas to Ohio about fierce storms and weak tornadoes moving through the area.

Dozens of people reported minor injuries, but so far, there have been no reports of death.
