Miles would have turned 4 later this month, the police chief said.

An investigation is underway after a young boy was found dead in a van parked outside an Orlando day care. Mina said the day care worker admitted to not doing a headcount when the children were dropped off. Mina did not say what the potential charges could be.

Orlando police tell local news outlets they were called to Little Miracles Academy on Monday night and found the child in the van.

Myles was the fifth child in Florida to die this year from being left in a hot vehicle and the 32nd nationwide, Mina said. He was pronounced dead at the scene, authorities said.

The chief said a daycare worker picked up Myles and other children to take them to another Little Miracles Academy during the morning. When he still hadn't returned by about 8 p.m., Myles' grandmother called police.

Barbara Livingston, Myles's aunt, told WKMG that she asked a day-care worker where the toddler was and she was told that he was "gone". "And I know we're all distracted with cellphones ... but you got to do something ... so that tragedies like this can be avoided".

If the heat-related death is confirmed, Myles would be the 32nd child to die in a hot auto this year - the fifth in Florida, Mina said. Data shows since 1998, 732 children have died that way. The Florida Department of Children and Families will be conducting an institutional investigation on the daycare center.

Records from the Florida Department of Children and Families show the daycare was found to be in violation of transportation rules last month, WESH reported. Employees had allegedly been failing to record arrival and departure times of their vehicles, but Little Miracles insists the problem was addressed immediately.
