Police are trying to identify the young boy, who was discovered by a pedestrian who spotted the body around 5 p.m. on Saturday, May 14.

The blue-eyed, blond-haired youngester, who appears to be between the ages of four and six, was discovered fully-clothed by the pedestrian, who first noticed a blanket at the end of a driveway outside South Bertwick, Maine. Truly devastating.

The boy weighs 45 pounds and is three feet, eight inches tall. Authorities have released a computer-generated photo and are in contact with the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children.

According to the Daily Mail, Maine State Police are treating this case as suspicious, as there was no missing persons report filed for a young boy.  Authorities have not released a cause of death nor disclosed information about how long the body was on the side of the road for.

Police are trying to track down the driver of a navy blue Toyota Tacoma pickup truck, which may be related to the case.

“It’s the next step in the investigation,” Sgt. Chris Harriman states. “We can’t move past that until he’s identified.”
