ShevyCLARION CO., Pa. (EYT) – A GoFundMe page has been set up for Shevy Lynn McGiffin, a local girl who was found dead after going missing on the evening of Friday, September 9 in Clarion Township.

The body of McGiffin, 13, of Clarion, was found Sunday afternoon near the Clarion River. She died as the result of an accidental drowning, according to Clarion-based State Police.

McGiffin left her Fraternity Drive home on foot Friday at approximately 7:15 p.m. to go to the Dollar General Store on South Fifth Avenue in Clarion Township.
