Jeremiah Oliver: 5-year-old missing from Fitchburg since September Found

UPDATE  7/16/15 – A Worcester judge ruled that Elsa Oliver, the mother of Jeremiah Oliver will stand trial on assault, kidnapping and child endangerment charges.  Her boyfriend Alberto Sierra Jr., is facing the same charges.  As of this date, no one has been charged with Oliver’s death.

UPDATE 4/20/14 –  The Worcester County District Attorney’s office has identified the body found off of I-190 as Jeremiah Oliver, according to NECN.

UPDATE 4/19/14 – A body found off a highway in central Massachusetts may belong to Jeremiah.  The authorities say the remains match Jeremiah’s height and weight, authorities said. Worcester County District Attorney Joseph D. Early Jr. said the body of a child found was found wrapped in a blanket inside a duffel bag.

“It appears to be a homicide,” the prosecutor said at a news conference.

UPDATE 12/21/13 – A search by volunteers was conducted around the neighborhood for Jerimiah.  Jose Oliver of Worcester, Jeremiah’s biological father, also searched for Jeremiah.

He told the Lowell Sun that he hadn’t seen his son in two years because of a restraining order filed by the boy’s mother, Elsa Oliver.

 “The social worker assigned to this case did not conduct the required in-person, monthly checks on the family,” Massachusetts Department of Children and Families Commissioner Olga Roche said in a statement when the boy was reported missing in December. “And the supervisor failed to enforce that policy.”
Roche fired both of them almost immediately.
