A three-year-old boy died after being left in a hot car in Columbus, Georgia, the prosecutor said.

Authorities believe that the boy Kendrick Engram Jr. had been in the car for about two hours and 45 minutes before being declared dead on Sunday evening, Muskogee County Coroner Buddy. Brian told ABC News.

On Sunday the temperature reached the 90's.

Kendrick spent Sunday with his grandmother and three sisters, Brian said, and they arrived home around 5:30 pm.

"Everyone entered the house except the little boy," Brian said. "My grandmother went into the bedroom and the other kids went to the kitchen area to eat. Then the kids went in and out and played ... just like the kids."

"Around 8:15 pm, my grandmother called out to the children and asked about the number of people, but no one knew where Kendrick was," Brian said.

Also, at around 8:15 pm, his grandmother's son (a child's uncle) rented his grandmother's car and drove to Wendy's, Brian said.

Uncle was in Wendy's, and at around 8:30 pm, Brian said her grandmother called and asked if she had Kendrick. My uncle said no, and she asked him to check the car, Brian said.

Brian said his uncle got out of the car, noticed that Kendrick was unresponsive, and called 911.

The prosecutor said his office plans to control Kendrick's heat-related deaths.
