Police in Quebec City are confirming that the body they found near a home Wednesday afternoon is that of missing 2-year-old Rosalie Gagnon.
The body was found on De Gaulle Avenue and transported to hospital, where the child was pronounced dead.
Quebec City police spokesperson Cyndi Paré would not confirm if any arrests had been made.
Earlier in the day, Rosalie and her mother, Audrey Gagnon, 23, were reported missing. Police later found Audrey Gagnon in an apartment around Gaspard Avenue, along with a man.
Police said they were interviewing the pair.
The search for the mother and daughter was triggered around seven in the morning when a bystander contacted police after finding an empty baby stroller in Bon-Air Park in the Charlesbourg neighbourhood.
