A 5-month-old boy missing from El Paso since last week is believed to have been found in the desert near U.S. 54 in southern New Mexico on Wednesday — the same day the baby’s father was returned to El Paso from Michigan and held on a $1.5 million bond, the El Paso Times reported.
The boy’s remains, believed to be those of 5-month-old Jackson Farrey, were found a quarter of a mile west of U.S. 54 in Orogrande, near McGregor Range and in an area commonly used for military training, the Times said.
The boy’s father, Army Spc. Jeffrey Farrey, 22, was being held in El Paso County Jail, the paper reported.
Police were working to confirm whether the remains were those of Jackson Farrey, who was reported missing from his El Paso home last week along with his parents and his 19-month-old brother, Blake Farrey, the Times said.
On Wednesday, representatives of the FBI, New Mexico State Police, Border Patrol and El Paso police were in Orogrande recovering the remains, which would be taken to the state Office of the Medical Investigator in Albuquerque to determine the identity of the remains and the cause of death, El Paso police spokesman Darrel Petry told the paper.

Are Remains Found That of Missing McStay Family? Remains Found In Victorville Desert ID’d as Joseph and Summer McStay, Missing Since February 2010 (Update: Remains Found of 4 year Old Gianni & 3 Year Old Joseph McStay)
Are the bodies found in shallow graves in the desert that of the missing McStay family?
The investigation into the remains began Monday when a motorcyclist discovered them in a shallow grave between Quarry Road near Highway 15 in the desert outside Victorville, CA. Joseph McStay, 40, his wife Summer, 43, and two young sons, 3 year old Joseph Mateo and 4 year old Gianni, disappeared from their upscale San Diego County home and went missing on February 2, 2010. The family literally went missing without a trace. Now there has been a big development in the case. Four bodies have been found in the Mojave desert.
Facebook: Bring The McStay Family Home.
There has been a big break in a high-profile missing persons case that has stymied investigators for years.
A family of four vanished without a trace more than three years ago. Earlier this week, the remains of four bodies were found in a shallow graves in the desert near Victorville.
Their SUV was found parked near the border. There was a time investigators in San Diego thought surveillance video showed the McStay family making their way into Mexico.
But relatives discounted that theory. They suspected foul play. The McStays left money in their bank accounts and the family’s two dogs were found wandering in their backyard.
Facebook – Bring The McStay Family Home
According to CBS – Los Angeles, two of the bodies have been identified as the parents, Joseph and Summer McStay. J
The skeletal remains found in the desert outside Victorville earlier this week have been identified as at least two members of a Fallbrook family who went missing nearly four years ago, CBS affiliate KFMB in San Diego reported Friday.
Patrick McStay says two of the four bodies found in a shallow grave have been identified as his son Joseph and daughter-in-law Summer McStay. The couple’s two missing sons are still unaccounted for as investigators confirm the identities of the other remains, according to KFMB.
Would have liked a better outcome than this, but at least their family has some form of closure. Hopefully they will get more answers as well. Rest in peace
More than three years ago the McStay family — Joseph, Summer and their two young sons – seemed to vanish into thin air, but Friday authorities confirmed that four sets of skeletal remains found in California’s Mojave Desert are likely those of the couple and their two boys.
San Bernardino County Sheriff John McMahon said at a press conference that the remains were identified through dental records as those of Joseph McStay, 40, and his wife, Summer, 43.
Authorities are in the process of identifying additional skeletal remains that are believed to be those of the couple’s sons, Gianni and Joseph Jr., who were 4 and 3, respectively, at the time of their disappearance.
UPDATE II: At least one of the remains taken out of one of the grave sites had been bound with an electric cord.
The remains are those of 4-year-old Gianni McStay and his 3-year-old brother, Joseph McStay, the coroner’s division of the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department said in a statement.
A state DNA lab confirmed their identities, the department said.

Twenty members of Sitka Mountain Rescue – and two search dogs – spent Tuesday searching the Indian River valley, along with many of Falzerano’s friends and family. A coast guard helicopter flew a sortie up the valley on Tuesday afternoon. As of Tuesday night the search had turned up nothing, according to Sitka Mountain Rescue director Don Kluting, who said it isn’t clear whether Falzerano went into the wilderness at all.
“We’re certainly worried. The urgency on this case has certainly gone up substantially,” Kluting said. “At the end of the day we still can’t demonstrate whether he’s in the urban setting or wilderness.”
If anyone has seen or has any information regarding the whereabouts of Scott Falzerano, please call the Sitka Fire Department at 747-3233, or police at 747-3245.

Volusia County deputies are still at Suarez’s home searching for clues that will lead them to the family.

Suarez’s husband, Luis Toledo, 31, showed up at her job at American K-9 Detection Services in Lake Mary on Tuesday about 1:30 p.m., started a fight and slapped her cheek, an arrest report states.
UPDATE I: 2 children missing from Volusia County.

Thalia has black hair and brown eyes and is 3 feet tall.

Suarez is 5-foot-3 and weighs 130 pounds.

Sad news to report, but not unexpected when the facts of the story were first reported. 9 year old Thalio Otto, 8 year old Michael Otto and their mom, 28 year old Yessenia Suarez are all considered deceased by authorities, however, their bodies have not yet been found. Luis Toledo is considered a person of interest in the triple murder.
Gary Davidson with the Volusia County Sheriff’s Office tells MyFoxOrlando.com authorities have determined the three are dead but their bodies have not been located.
“The search for the victims’ bodies and the investigation into their deaths is still ongoing, and no one has been charged at this time,” Davidson said.
Police are considering her husband, Luis Toeldo, 31, a possible person of interest in the case.
Of course he did, that is what cowards do.
UPDATE IV: Search continues for remains of Deltona mom, kids … remains found not that of missing mom and children.
Authorities said they found remains in a wooded area off U.S. Highway 17-92 while searching on Sunday for a missing Deltona mother and her two children.
The remains are of an adult, said Shannon Cordingly, a Sanford police spokeswoman. But it’s likely they’re not of 28-year-old Yessenia Suarez, who has been missing for about a week, Cordingly added. She said the medical examiner still needs to conduct an autopsy.
“The skeletal remains have been there for a long time,” she said. “It was bones we found.”

If anyone has any information about Suarez or her children can call the Sheriff’s Office at 386-736-5999 or 911.
