THE search for a missing toddler has met a grim end as the boy's body was found on Wednesday, according to local media.

Police in Massachusetts searched a wooded area in Lowell as they continue to investigate the scene.



The boy, a three-year-old named Harry, went missing from his babysitter's house on Tuesday, prompting a huge search involving 150 and 180 members of law enforcement and fire departments.

"There's an enormous amount of assets that have been amassed to help look for and find this child, and we're going to continue those efforts until we do find the child," said interim Lowell Police Superintendent Barry Golner to NECN.

The boy was dropped off at the babysitter's home in the morning and a neighbor said they saw him playing in the front yard around 9:15AM.

Fifteen minutes later, the babysitter reported that Harry was missing.

"We have a very narrow window of when he went missing," Carlisle Police Chief John Fisher told reporters Wednesday morning.

According to Fisher, this had been Harry's fifth visit with the babysitter, who had been watching another child at the time.
