Police believe they may have discovered the remains of missing Myrtleford toddler Daniel Thomas.
The discovery of bones was made by dogs in the backyard of a house in Lawrence Street Myrtleford, a house once rented by the boy’s mother Donna.
Daniel Thomas was last seen alive on October 15 2003 when his mother left him in the care of babysitter Mandy Martyn.
A crime scene has been established and homicide detectives are making their way to the scene.
More details as they come to hand.
