Police are investigating a tragic accident that led to a 2-year-old boy's death. 

According to KSL, the boy's LDS family had traveled to St. George, Utah, for a religious meeting during a family reunion that consisted of more than five families and 25 to 30 children when the 2-year-old "did not exit the vehicle with the other children and adults," according to a statement from the Washington County Sheriff's office. His body was found nearly six hours later at about 6:30 p.m. by his father after the family searched for the missing child. The outside temperature at the time was approximately 106 degrees, according to KSL

The investigation into the death of a 2-year-old boy left in a hot car for at least six hours remains open as officials await autopsy results, according to the Washington County Sheriff's Office.

A funeral for Abraham Royal was held Thursday in the boy's hometown of Preston, Idaho, according to his obituary.
