Police search teams in Queens are continuing to scour a site where human remains were found as tests are underway to determine if the remains are those of missing autistic teen Avonte Oquendo.
A human arm, a torso and pair of legs were found just southwest of the Bronx-Whitestone Bridge earlier this week. Police divers and cadaver dogs recovered more remains this weekend, including teeth and another arm.
Most of the remains were found on a rocky shore near the College Point Yacht Club, about 11 miles from where Avonte disappeared more than three months ago.
The remains were found in clothes and sneakers similar to those Avonte wore the day he ran from his school in Long Island City and vanished.
The remains were taken to a morgue where the medical examiner's office will try to identify them and determine a cause of death.
"It's not Avonte until the DNA evidence comes in and says it is,” said Avonte's family's attorney, David Perecman Saturday. “On the other hand, it's not looking great."
