Chicago police are trying to determine if the body of a young child found in south suburban Riverdale is that of a missing Chicago girl.
One-year-old Ameriah Roberson was reported missing from the 3500 block of South Rhodes Avenue.
Ameriah’s aunt tells WGN that Chicago police detectives have asked her brother to identify the remains discovered yesterday afternoon in an abandoned building near 140th and South Normal in Riverdale.
An autopsy is being performed on the child’s body. Results are expected later this afternoon.
