(CNN) — Authorities in Chicago say they don’t know yet whether child body parts found in the city’s Garfield Park are from the same body.

Over the weekend, after a human foot was discovered, searchers recovered the head, two hands, and two feet of a child, according to the police department and the city’s medical examiner’s office. Investigators found the hands and feet in a lagoon in the park on Saturday and officers continued searching into the night, video footage from CNN affiliate WLS showed.

A source with knowledge of the investigation said it was a citizen that made the first discovery in the park.

A search of the same area Sunday recovered the head.

Some of the remains were found in a plastic bag, authorities said.

As search teams returned to the same area on Monday, the medical examiner’s office said a pathologist would begin the examination process.

The park, which is centrally located near Chicago’s New West Side, remains closed.
