The body of a missing 18-month-old boy who was reportedly abducted from his aunts house was found dumped in a landfill, police say.

Cedric Jackson was last seen alive early Wednesday morning at his aunts apartment in Dallas, Texas.

Police and FBI investigators used search dogs to scour a regional landfill in Rowlett and found Cedcrics body on Thursday, authorities announced.

The boys grandmother told Fox 4 the boy was dead, but did not specify how he died or how police appeared to know where to find his body.

Authorities said Cedrics aunt was recently given temporary custody of the boy and woke up to find the boy was missing Wednesday morning.

As investigators searched for Cedrics remains, family members expressed doubt in regards to her claims because they said she slept in the same bed as the child, according to CBS.
