A Body found in Alabama during the search for missing 5-year-old Taylor Williams, police said on Tuesday.

The identity of the remains has not been determined, police said.

Authorities said on Monday that the search for Taylor, a resident of Jacksonville, Florida, extended to Alabama. The remains were found in a wooded area between the towns of Linden and Demopolis, police said.

The Jacksonville sheriff's office, which was leading the investigation into the missing girl, "will await confirmation of the results of the medico-legal tests," the Demopolis police said in a statement.

The search for the 5-year-old girl began Wednesday.

She was last seen at her home in Jacksonville around midnight on Wednesday when her mother put her to bed.

The mother, Brianna Williams was named person of interest in the case Monday. Jacksonville sheriff Mike Williams said Brianna Williams was not cooperating with the investigators and had not spoken to the authorities since Wednesday when Taylor was reported missing.

Brianna Williams was the last person to see the little girl, said the sheriff.
