A body was found inside a freezer in the garage of a grandmother of the missing girl, Janiya Thomas, said Bradenton police chief Michael Radzilowski.

Authorities say the body is likely to be that of Janiya, who has not been seen in months.

The girl's aunt and grandmother made the discovery. They told investigators Janiya's mother and an unidentified man dropped off the freezer on Wednesday.

The women were unaware of its contents until they saw news reports about Janiya and checked inside, the Bradenton Herald reported.

Janiya's mother, 31-year-old Keishanna Thomas, was taken into custody on Friday after police said she refused to answer questions about her daughter's whereabouts.
