Authorities stated on Mon., Oct. 23, that the boy, Isaiah Juarez missing from Tennessee that looked similar to the boy found in Galveston, has been located and is not the child found in Galveston.

The child is described as approximately 3’ tall with a slender build, black hair, and brown eyes.”
A body of a toddler was found on the beach in Galveston, Texas on Friday evening, October, 20, 2017.
The citizen walking on the beach found the body that has been stated to be a boy near 7th Street and Seawall Blvd on Stewart Beach. The boy is estimated to be between the ages of 3 and 5.
“Really in between about 7th Street Stuart Beach, there’s a lot a grassland in here. There’s not a lot of beach in between the dunes and the actual tide line, so, it’s definitely not heavily trafficked, not heavily populated and really don’t get a lot of people walking to and from.” Captain Joshua Schirard with the Galveston Police said.
The Galveston Police have no record of a missing child matching the description of this little boy and are contacting nearby authorities to see if they have a child reported missing.
The Galveston Police Department is asking anyone that may have any information concerning this case to call the Police Department at 409-765-3702 or Galveston County Crimestoppers at 409-763-8477.
