A memorial for Chance Walk is being set up at the home as community members come to grips with what happened to the boy, who would have been 11 weeks old this past Monday. A candlelight vigil was held Thursday night.

After police investigators received a tip, they found the body of North Port infant Chance Walsh in a small burial site at Wylam Drive and English Circle, North Port, Florida.

The Sarasota County Sheriff’s office received a tip Wednesday evening that the missing 9-week-old baby was buried 13 miles from his parent’s home in North Port, Florida. The dense, wooded area is secluded, undeveloped subdivision with no houses nearby.

Chance Walsh was reported missing by his grandparents on October 4, 2015. He was last seen on September 9, 2015.

From September 28-30, 2015, Chance’s parents, 36-year-old Joseph Walsh and 32-year-old Kristen Bury, stayed at a Georgia Hotel and tried to sell Chance’s clothes — telling potential buyers that their baby had died three weeks prior. Surveillance video showed the couple, but did not show any evidence that Chance was with them.

On October 2, 2015 his parents were involved in a crash in South Carolina. The baby was not involved in the crash, but Kristen called her father and asked for money on October 3rd,

On October 4, 2015 Joe Walsh called his mother and told her that Chance died in the crash. That’s when Walsh’s mother called police with concerns about Chance.

On October 5, 2015 sheriff’s deputies found blood inside the family home.

On October 6, 2015 his parents claimed they gave him away. Police then arrested both parents and charged them with child neglect.

Media were alerted by police on October 7, 2015, and investigators from multiple jurisdictions in Florida and Georgia worked worked to locate the infant.

They both remain jailed on child neglect charges. The Medical Examiner still needs to confirm identification of the body, and now the cause of death is under investigation.

A sibling of Chance died of kidney failure about one year ago. That death is also likely to undergo additional investigation.

Breaking News earlier Thursday: Sarasota County Sheriff Tom Knight said the body of an infant believed to be missing 11-week-old Chance Walsh was recovered Thursday in North Port after investigators received a tip. Police had most recently been seraching in Port Charlotte in Charlotte County.

Earlier the investigation into the death of Chance Walsh shifted to Charlotte County. NBC2 was on scene as law enforcement searched the land and waters around the El Jobean fishing pier in Port Charlotte.
