The little boy disappeared Friday, leading to a massive search. It came to a tragic end when his body was found in Lake Erie on Saturday.

Sidney is from Bay Village; that community held a similar vigil on Sunday night.

Friends and family are sharing their memories of Sidney on a special Facebook page titled “In Memory of Sidney Heidrick“.

A GoFundMe page has been set up to support the family during this time. Friends are hoping this will help cover any “funeral expenses, bills, and support the family for any time off they need to take from work.” Click here to visit that page.
