TEXAS CITY, Texas (FOX 26) - Investigators with the Texas Department of Public Safety, College Station and Bryan police, and the Galveston County Sheriff's Office recovered the body of a small child from the Moses Bayou near State Highway 146 in Texas City.
The body was found in what appears to be a black plastic bag.
The discovery comes just three days after two-year-old Hazana Anderson was reported missing from a park in College Station.
"Today as a result of these efforts, investigators responded to the greater Houston area where they coordinated with local authorities who were able to recover remains that were consistent with a small child," said College Station Police Department Chief Scott McCollum during a news conference on Wednesday.
The girl's mother, 21-year-old Tiaundra Kae Christon, was arrested and charged on Monday with child endangerment and false reporting in connection to the case.
Authorities did not specify what condition the child's body was in when it was discovered on Wednesday afternoon.
The medical examiner's office is now conducting testing to positively determine the identity of the body found. It may take several weeks before the results are in, according to McCollum.
