MISSISSAUGA, Ont. - Police plan to continue searching a suburban Mississauga, Ont., park today where a human head and foot were found.

Authorities discovered a woman's head yesterday in the Credit River where it runs through Hewick Meadows Park, a day after hikers came across what is believed to be a woman's severed foot.

Investigators spent yesterday scouring the water, parklands and surrounding rocky hills in search of more body parts.

Tests are being done to determine if the head and the foot found in the river are from the same person.

Peel Regional Police Acting Inspector Randy Cowan says the size of the body parts do not suggest they are from a child.

Investigators are asking anyone who has seen anything suspicious in the area within the last couple of weeks to give them a call.

Officers are also sifting through missing person reports, in case any have a link to the body parts.

Investigators believe the body parts were severed in the last few weeks.

Police can't say if the body parts were placed where they were found or if they drifted there from another point upstream in the river, which flows from headwaters above the Niagara Escarpment to Lake Ontario.
