DeBARY, Fla. -

Volusia County deputies have found a decomposing body in DeBary on Wednesday morning but they say it is not related to the search for the Deltona missing mom Yessenia Suarez and her children.

While deputies weren’t immediately able to determine the sex of the body, evidence at the scene indicates that the body is not connected to the search.

The body was discovered off of South Leisure World Drive near Barwick Road by a resident in the area who contacted the Sheriff’s Office at 10:21 a.m. on Wednesday ,deputies said.

VCSO is investigating.

Suarez and her two children, 9-year-old Thalia Otto and 8-year-old Michael Otto, haven't been seen since Oct. 23 and are all presumed dead. Suarez' husband, Luis Toldeo, faces a second-degree murder charge after he confessed to killing her. He has told deputies he didn't kill the children.
