The death of a thirteen-year-old boy in Wales could have been the result of illegal substances, police say.

Police confirmed on Sunday (local time) illegal substances were being considered as a contributing factor to the death of Carson Price, which is currently being treated as unexplained, The Mirror reports.

The British publication says Carson was found in a park in Ystrad Mynach, South Wales, about a mile from his home on Friday evening (local time).

He was taken to University Hospital of Wales in Cardiff where he was pronounced dead.

His family released a statement saying Carson was "bright and caring, kind and loving, he was a cheeky little boy".

The statement said: "He was the best big brother and was loved and will be missed by so many."
