Missouri Highway Patrol officials say the body of 3-year-old Titus Greyson Tackett was found in a van near the family's home. There still is no official word on his cause of death.
Reports show Tackett's grandparents were babysitting him when they fell asleep and the toddler got out of the house. The parents returned home to find their son missing and the front door standing open.
Highway Patrol said an autopsy will be conducted to help determine if foul play was involved.
