The remains of a young child were found near the Anthonys' home.
"We are assuming they are the remains of a victim," said Orange County Sheriff's Office spokesman Jim Solomons.
It is not clear at this point whether the body could be Caylee Anthony.
"We know we have a recent discovery. We have investigators on the scene. We need to determine what we have," said Solomons.
