Original story: The police are searching for missing Aramazd Andressian, Jr., 5, who went missing near Arroyo Park in Pasadena, Calif. Aramazd’s father, Aramazd Andressian, 35, was found passed out in the park along Stoney Dr, reports KTLA5 news. Aramazd was taken to the hospital and released late Saturday night. Around 9 a.m. Sunday, April 23, 2017, Aramazd’s mother called the San Marino Police Dept. to report that her husband had not shown up with their child after visitation as planned on Saturday. The last communication she had with them was Tuesday, reports ABC7 news.
The police realized that the report of the missing child and the arrest of the father were the same and the police arrested Aramazd for suspicion of child abduction and child endangerment.
“When we found out the boy was missing we don’t know if he crawled out of the car himself, if he walked away, if he was abducted – we have no idea,” the police said during an afternoon press conference.
Authorities stated that Aramazd has been changing his story about the whereabouts of his son and police stated the father as “not very forthcoming.”
The authorities have searched the park, but at this point they do not know if Aramazd was with his father that morning or not.
Aramazd weighs 55 pounds, with brown hair and brown eyes. He was last seen wearing a turquoise shirt and plaid shorts. He has a small mole on the bottom of his right shoulder.
Anyone who sees the little boy or has more information is urged to call 911 or the South Pasadena Police Department at (626) 403-7270.
