Young boy's body turns up on remote Maine road

State police in Maine are appealing for the public's help as investigators try to identify the body of a boy found along a remote road.

The body was found by a resident in South Berwick at about 5 p.m. Saturday. Police are terming the death suspicious. His cause of death hasn't been released.

Steve McCausland of the Maine Department of Public Safety says the boy is believed to be 4 to 6 years old with dirty blond hair and blue eyes. Police released a computer-generated photo of the boy Sunday.

The body was found by a resident who spotted a blanket at the end of a driveway outside South Berwick, about 15 miles north of Portsmouth, N.H.

Maine and New Hampshire police have had no missing-person report filed for a young boy.
