Search For Missing 5-Year-Old South Pasadena Boy Enters Third Day

SOUTH PASADENA (CBSLA.com) — Authorities scoured several locations in Los Angeles and Orange counties Monday as the search for for a missing five-year-old boy entered a third day.

Aramazd Andressian, Jr. was last seen by his mother Tuesday via Skype video call from an unknown location.

The boy was in the temporary custody of his father, Aramazd Andressian Sr., who was found unconscious at a South Pasadena park Saturday.

He was being held on $10 million bail after being arrested on suspicion of child endangerment.

Detectives were back out at the father’s South Pasadena home Monday collecting evidence.

Police said it was still unclear when and where he saw his son last. “He’s given us some conflicting statements. He hasn’t given us any information that leads us to the whereabouts of the child,” said Lt. Joe Mendoza of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department.

Detectives have also been in touch with relatives in Armenia. “The fact that we don’t have anything that leads us to believe he has made it out to that country is comforting because we have been in touch with customs and we don’t believe he has traveled there,” Mendoza explained.

They have confirmed the boy was with his father at Disneyland Friday morning, the day before he was found passed out in South Pasadena’s Arroyo Seco Park.

Andressian was last seen with his son Thursday at Disneyland. He was supposed to drop his son off with his estranged wife Saturday morning. The two share custody.

When he failed to do so, she called police. Andressian was then found passed out at this South Pasadena park.

When he woke up at the hospital, he told police he didn’t know how he got here. There was a massive search at the park over the weekend.

Investigators said no witnesses have been able to place the boy at the park. They said there were no signs of foul play but were concerned because the boy’s parents are going through a divorce.

The boy is 4 feet 1, 55 pounds, with brown hair and brown eyes.

He was last seen wearing a turquoise plaid shirt and plaid shorts and has a small mole on the bottom of his right shoulder.

Even though the parents were in the midst of a divorce, there was nothing in their history that suggested the boy could be in danger, detectives told CBS2’s Kristine Lazar.
