ORLANDO, Fla. The meter reader who discovered the body of slain toddler Caylee Anthony says he was looking for a shady spot to take a break along his route when he pulled over last August and saw what looked like a bag in a swampy Orlando woods.

Roy Kronk ended up calling authorities three times over the next three days to get them to come out to the area. When they finally did, nothing was found. It wasn't until last December, when Kronk returned to the woods to relieve himself, that he found a bag with Caylee's remains inside.

Kronk recounted how he discovered the remains for the first time in detail on ABC's "Good Morning America" on Tuesday.

Caylee Anthony's mother, Casey, has been charged with murdering her daughter.
