Blasting News reported on the story of 35-year-old Aramazd Andressian Sr., who was found passed out in a South Pasadena park in mid-April, while his five-year-old son was nowhere to be found. While the search for Aramazd Andressian Jr. still continues, the father has been arrested a second time on suspicion of murder. Andressian was arrested on Friday in Las Vegas and is currently being held on $10 million bail.

No report yet on evidence found by authorities

As reported by ABC7, the Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department is working closely with officials in Las Vegas relating to the arrest, following evidence given to Los Angeles County prosecutors by investigators.

At present it is unknown what evidence has been found against Andressian, but it was clearly enough to lead to the father’s arrest.

Father found unconscious in a park with his son missing

It happened in mid-April, when Andressian was found unconscious in Arroyo Park in South Pasadena and his son was nowhere to be seen. The father was arrested on charges of child abduction and child endangerment, but was released after only a few days behind bars, as investigators chose not to move forward with charges against Andressian. Since that time a search has been launched over several counties for the five-year-old or his body, but with no success.

Andressian and the boy’s mother were going through a divorce and custody battle at the time and were sharing custody of Aramazd on a week to week basis. The boy’s mother, Ana Estevez, had last spoken to her son a few days before he disappeared via Skype. Andressian was supposed to return the boy to his mother at a pre-arranged meeting place, but didn’t show up. When Aramazd was not returned to her, Estevez then alerted the police to the fact that her son was missing.

The New York Daily News reports that authorities are still trying to establish why Andressian had passed out in the South Pasadena park, as he did not appear to have been attacked. Police also found his statements regarding the loss of his son to be contradictory and convoluted.

Mother still hopes for her missing son’s return

In the meanwhile, the boy’s mother has released a statement, still hoping for his safe return. She said in the statement that her son must be brave and that she is counting the days until she sees him again. Estevez added that she will never stop looking for her son.

More information is to be released by the Los Angeles Sheriff’s department at a press conference to be held on Monday.
