Posted: Updated:

HARVEY, La. (KNOE 8 News/AP) - The mother of missing 6-year-old Ahlittia North says Jefferson Parish authorities have found the body of her daughter in a Harvey trash bin.

The sheriff's office contacted her around 1 a.m. Tuesday

Sheriff's office spokesman Col. John Fortunato declined comment until a news conference scheduled at 10 a.m.

Ahlittia disappeared from her apartment late Friday night or early Saturday morning. Deputies have said someone also took her brown and plaid comforter, a toothbrush and toothpaste.

Hill said they were told the body was found in a trash bin not far from their apartment.

It wasn't clear early Tuesday whether investigators had previously searched the bid where the body was found.
