UPDATE 8/8/2017 at 11:27 a.m.

A toddler found dead outside an Orlando daycare facility has reportedly been identified.  

Family members say he was 3-year-old Myles Hill. It's not known how long Myles had been left in the van.  

No charges have been filed.  

The daycare center is closed until further notice.


Police say a young boy was found dead Monday night inside of a van that was parked outside of an Orlando day care center. 

Authorities say they received a call around 8:30 p.m. in connection with a possible child neglect case at Little Miracles Academy at 900 Plymouth Ave.

Responding officers found the boy inside the van. Police say he was pronounced dead a short time later. 

Earlier in the night, police were allegedly investigating a situation in which a child was reportedly left in a day care van for hours. It's not known exactly how long the boy had been in the van.

According to a July Florida Department of Children and Families inspection report, Little Miracles was cited for not keeping track of children being transported.

"The facility's log for children transported did not include the following required elements: [destination time, arrival time, destination location and departure location. ]. (Section 6.2, number 3) [SR]," the DCF report said.

A sign on the day care's door says the facility is closed until further notice.

Parents who arrived Tuesday morning to drop off their children say they were not notified of the boy's death.

No one has been taken into custody. An investigation is continuing.

The victim's age has not been confirmed, but police describe him as "a very young boy." No further details were immediately available.
