AUSTIN, Texas (AP) - Texas authorities say they’ve recovered the body of a small child in Austin and believe it’s the remains of a missing 2-year-old boy.

Police had been searching an Austin field for Colton Turner, whose mother was being held in nearby Williamson County on a charge of abandoning and endangering a child.

Cedar Park Police Chief Sean Mannix said authorities consider the case a suspicious death and that Williamson County and Travis County prosecutors are collaborating on more charges against the missing child’s mother, Meagan Work.

Police revealed few details of their discovery Friday. They had been searching for the boy since Wednesday after receiving a call from someone concerned about the child’s welfare.
