WYLIE, TX (KCBD) - A $20,000 reward is now being offered for information leading to the identification of "Wylie's Angel."

Police say the young boy whose body was found near a Texas lake had "significant medical needs" and likely was fed by a feeding tube.

The boy, who is believed to be 6, has not been identified. He was found Thursday near Lavon Lake in Wylie, about 20 miles northeast of Dallas.

Police say there are no missing children reports matching the boy's information.. There were no apparent signs of trauma.

But the boy, who was 39 inches tall, weighed just 28 pounds.

A Facebook group has been created to gain awareness and circulate a digital rendering of the child as much as possible. Click here to join the group and to receive any updates on the child, or just search Wylie's Angel on Facebook.

The Collin County Child Abuse Task Force is asking that any persons with information about the identity of this child, specifically in-home health care providers, school personnel, day care personnel or community-based social services to contact: 1-800-THE-LOST (1-800-843-5678).

If you have a child with special needs go to http://www.thearcoftexas.org/ for support and information.
