BRYAN, Texas – Police have found a child’s body during their search for Rayven Shields, a missing 3-year-old girl in Bryan.

The Bryan Police Department  announced, during the execution of a search warrant in the 4300 block of Conner, investigators discovered human remains.

Police said Rayven’s mother, Virginia Adams, has earlier refused to cooperate with a CPS investigation against her. A court order was recently obtained by CPS giving them custody of Rayven. Adams was arrested this week and charged with interference with child custody.

Detectives found decomposed remains of a small child, who they suspect is that of the missing 3-year-old, but they have not confirmed that it is Rayven. BPD disclosed much of this information during their press conference on Saturday afternoon which can be seen below.
