BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) - Police have identified a 3-year-old boy who was found sleeping on a porch in Buffalo and are now looking for his parents.

Investigators also are trying to determine whether there is a connection between the boy and the discovery of possible human remains in a burned-out car nearby.


Police on Tuesday say they are looking for a Florida couple, 24-year-old Nicole Merced Plaud and 31-year-old Miguel Anthony Valentin-Colon, the parents of the 3-year-old old boy discovered alone Monday morning in Buffalo. A family friend from the Orlando area also is considered missing.

Capt. Jeff Rinaldo says it will take some time to identify the remains discovered later Monday in a car that burned until it extinguished itself. He says the vehicle and its contents were destroyed.
