ORLANDO, Fla. (WTXL) - Orlando police have released 911 phone calls from the day that 3-year-old Myles Hill was found dead inside a daycare van after being left for almost 12 hours in hot temperatures.

A frantic woman describes how she found the child's body inside the van.

Warning: Some of this may be disturbing:

":50-- 1:05 OK so somebody left a child there? Yes they left the child in the van (inaudible) I've been in the building all day. The child has been left in there. That's all i can tell you."

After Myles's death, the Florida Department of Children and Families shut down two Little Miracles Academy locations.

The driver of the van, Deborah St. Charles, was arrested and charged with aggravated manslaughter of a child.

State records show that St. Charles was not licensed to drive the daycare van.

Funeral services for Myles are being held Saturday.
