WASHINGTON (WUSA9) -- Police are still trying to determine how a 7-year-old boy with autism ended up dead in a car 50 feet from his home.

After a two-day intense search for Michael Kingsbury, police say that they found a body which matches the description of the boy on Monday night. 

Michael was last seen on Sunday at around 9 a.m. while playing in his family's backyard in the 1700 block of West Virginia Avenue, Northeast DC. 

Dozens of police had passed out flyers and patrolled the streets of D.C. Academy recruits had gone door to door to make sure no stone goes unturned. Police said they interviewed everyone.

Police do not suspect foul play so far. Neighbors have raised concerns about registered sex offenders in the area. A quick search found more than 20 offenders listed within a quarter mile of the home in the Trinidad neighborhood.

Michael is described as a black male, approximately 4'3" tall, approximately 60 pounds, dreadlocks, with a light complexion. He was last seen wearing a pull-up diaper and may be in need of medical attention. He may not respond to verbal cues.

The boy's mother, Katrina Kingsbury, had posted photos of Michael on her Facebook page, along with her contact information for anyone who has information about her son.  Katrina Kingsbury also helped pass out flyers, saying, "I'm going out and looking for my baby... not staying put."

The family and the community are now left to grieve while police investigate this tragic case. 

Anyone with information on this case is asked to call the Metropolitan Police Department at 202-727-9099, Youth Investigations Division at 202-576-6768 or 911.
