Myles Hill was found dead Monday evening in a van at the Little Miracles Academy.

Orlando Chief of Police John Mina said the child is believed to have been left in the van since around 9:00 a.m. that morning, as outside temperatures peaked at about 93 degrees Fahrenheit.

Orlando Police Chief John Mina said the staff member who had driven the children had been very cooperative and was "extremely distraught".

The Little Miracles Academy could not be reached by CNN. Tragically, one of our officers arrived.

The vehicle was reportedly used to ferry children between different day care center locations and to drop them off at their homes.

"Nobody else should have to go through what I'm going through", said Myles' mother.

Hall was supposed to be dropped off at his grandmother's house Monday night, but he never arrived. Barbara Livingston, Myles' great aunt, is adamant that the owners of Little Miracles Academy face criminal charges for their neglect.

'(We) said, 'Gone where?' And she pointed at the van, ' Livingston told News 6.

So far in 2017, 32 children have died from heatstroke after being left in hot cars, according to a national database. I want everybody to just trust me. Hill would have been 4 years old later in August. Still, parents were seen taking their children to the closed day care Tuesday, unaware of the child's death. Charges for the unidentified daycare worker have not yet been specified, yet they are cooperating with police. The Florida Department of Children and Families will be conducting an institutional investigation on the daycare center.

Robert Nesmith, the attorney for the daycare's owner, told the Daily News he plans to hold a press conference once all the information was gathered in the case. Since 2015, Little Miracles has also been cited four other times, including once for not keeping attendance records during fire drills.

According to an inspection report, "The facility's log for children transported did not include destination time, arrival time, destination location, and departure location".

A representative for Little Miracles Academy did not immediately return International Business Times' request for comment.

The day care failed to comply with the "transportation rule" during a July 11 inspection.
