Authorities say there may be a break in the case of missing New York autistic teen, Avonte Oquendo. Police received a 911 call from a 19-year-old photographer who discovered the human remains near College Point. The remains, which included a human arm, legs, ribs and a pelvic bone were found Thursday night, about 11 miles from where Avonte was last seen.
Police divers are searching the East River Saturday for more remains.
Police found a striped shirt in the water Saturday, according to the Oquendo family attorney. Avonte was wearing a striped shirt when he went missing.
An identification on the remains could come on Wednesday.
