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.

“There was an extraordinary mobilization all over this city by community members, by the NYPD, looking for this young man with no success, and I can only imagine what his parents have gone through,” said Mayor Bill de Blasio.

Sources say it is possible that Avonte may have fallen into the river next to his school in Queens.
