Florida authorities believe they have found the body of a missing 9-week-old boy whose parents are already in jail on child abuse charges.

Sarasota Sheriff Tom Knight said Thursday afternoon that investigators found the body buried in North Port after receiving a tip.

Nine-week-old Chance Walsh has been missing since Sept. 9. Authorities say they became involved when Chance's grandmother called them Oct. 4, concerned about the baby's well-being.

His parents, Kristen Bury and Joseph Walsh, were arrested on Florida child abuse charges in South Carolina and are awaiting extradition.

Jasper County, South Carolina, Jail Director Arthur S. Benjamin said he doesn't know if the parents have an attorney.
