FOND DU LAC, Wis. -

A child with ties to Wisconsin is among the victims of the Oklahoma tornado.

Nine-year-old Sydney Angle was a student at Plaza Towers Elementary School in Moore, Okla. She died Monday when a massive tornado tore through the town.

Her grandparents, Mike and Leslie Benson, live in Fond du Lac. Her parents, Dan and Nicole Angle, graduated from high schools in Wisconsin.

Dan Angle now works for Quad/Graphics in Oklahoma.

Family friend Pam McCarthy told The Reporter Media that the couple and their two other children are safe and have a place to stay. She says donations are being collected to help the family.

Another family friend, Mary Heider, says everyone had been hoping Sydney would be found safe and now they are grieving.
