Body of missing Los Angeles-area boy found near lake

Police have discovered the body of a schoolboy who has been missing since April.

Aramazd Andressian Jr. disappeared on April 21 following a trip to Disney World.

The five-year-old’s dad has been charged with his murder.

The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department said detectives found the remains of the child on Friday.

His body was in an area of Lake Cachuma, a recreational area about 15 miles northwest of Santa Barbara.

A statement revealed the discovery was based on ‘additional leads’ but did not provide any other details, including how the boy died.

The same area had been searched several times previously.

The boy was found on the same day that his father, Aramazd Andressian Sr. of South Pasadena, was returned to Southern California from Las Vegas, where he was arrested last week.

Prosecutors believe Andressian killed the boy after an outing to the theme park, possibly out of bitterness over a pending divorce.

Andressian has denied the murder charges.
