BALSAM LAKE, Wisc. (AP) Sheriff's officials say the body of a missing western Wisconsin toddler has been found in the trunk of a car near his home.

Two-year-old Isaiah Theis has been the subject of a widespread search since his disappearance Tuesday evening in Polk County.

The sheriff's department issued a statement Thursday which says searchers had looked into the locked vehicle and the area around it after the boy went missing from his home near Centuria. When the owner of the car arrived to remove it about 10 p.m. Wednesday, a deputy opened the trunk and found the boy's body.

Authorities say the cause and manner of the child's death is under investigation.
