BOWIE COUNTY (KTBS) - Services for 7 year old Liam Hamilton are Saturday, July 27th, at 2:30; at the first Baptist Church in Atlanta. A graveside service will follow in Queen City.

Visitation is tonight, July 26th, at the Hanner funeral home in Atlanta, from 6:30 to 8:30.

Hamilton, who is autistic, was reported missing Wednesday afternoon. Dive teams started searching the pond, after his ball cap was found in the area. Liam's mom said, due to her son's autism, he had a habit of running off.

Authorities searched for six hours before finding his body. The family is requesting those who attend the funeral to honor Liam by wearing his favorite color "Red".
