SANFORD, Fla. - Authorities said a cadaver dog found human skeletal remains in Sanford on Sunday, but they are not those of a missing Deltona woman or her children.

Sanford police were called to a wooded area off State Road 17-92 near State Road 417, where the remains were found.

According to officials, a cadaver dog from Volusia County was participating in the search for the missing family when it made the discovery. The skeletal remains appear to be those of an adult, police said.

The Volusia County Sheriff's Office has been conducting ongoing searches in Seminole County for the bodies of Yessenia Suarez and her two children.

A medical examiner will perform an autopsy on the remains to determine a cause of death.
