The parents of a missing 8-year-old boy in California have been arrested for child abuse as authorities asked to the public’s help in finding the child.
Fox 11 reports that Noah McIntosh, 8, has been missing from his Corona home for over two weeks. On Thursday, Corona police announced the arrest of Jillian Godfrey, 36, and Bryce McIntosh, 32; parents of the missing boy. The report indicates that the parents do not live together, and that McIntosh had not cooperating with authorities.
The circumstances of Noah’s disappearance from his home on Temescal Canyon Road approximately two weeks ago are not known, but police told Fox 11 that they had responded to the home, where Godfrey lives, on Tuesday evening because she had “expressed concerns over [Noah’s] whereabouts,” according to the report.
After multiple failed attempts to reach McIntosh at another residence, the Corona Police Department’s Special Response team reportedly executed a search warrant at the apartment, where McIntoch was found with his 11-year-old daughter, but Noah was not there.
Authorities have not released details on the evidence that led to the child abuse arrests and are continuing to search for the boy.
Anyone with information on Noah McIntosh’s whereabouts is urged to contact the Senior Detective Mario Hernandez at 951-279-3659 or Mario.Hernandez@CoronaCA.gov.
