The skeletal remains of a small child were found Thursday near the home of missing Orlando toddler Caylee Anthony’s family.
There was no immediate word on whether the bones, reportedly discovered wrapped in a plastic bag and bound with duct tape, were those of a boy or a girl.
“All we know is that remains of a child have been found,” a police spokeswoman told FOXNews.com. Orange County sheriffs and forensics teams went to the scene at the intersection of South Chickasaw Trail and Suburban Drive in Orlando.
Sheriff’s Office spokesman Jim Solomons told The Associated Press that a utility worker found the body at 9:32 a.m. EST Thursday in a wooded area down the road from the house Caylee lived in with her grandparents and mother.
The water meter reader reportedly picked up the bag and a small skull rolled out that sources say strongly resembled that of a little girl.
Police said the Anthony family has been notified of the discovery and no one is being allowed in their house.
