Search in Sodus to resume this morning for a missing one-year old boy.
The search for a missing 14 month old boy from Sodus resumes this morning with investigators focusing on a 350 acre Joy Road Farm.
An Amber Alert was issued throughout Western New York yesterday for 14 month old Owen Hidalgo-Calderon whose mother was found dead earlier this week.
The body of 18 year old Selena, Hidalgo-Calderon was located Wednesday in some woods behind the farm in Sodus and Wayne County Sheriff Barry Virts believes the boy’s body will be recovered there as well.
State Police have arrested the woman’s boyfriend, Alberto Reyes, on a charge of tampering with evidence after he apparently admitted to moving the body and burying it.
Reyes refused to talk about the whereabouts of the child.
Sheriff Virts said following yesterday’s search there is no evidence that the boy was abducted and his experience in law enforcement leads him to believe the search will end in a body recovery.
