Parents of California boy missing 2 weeks charged

CORONA, Calif. (AP) — The parents of an 8-year-old Southern California boy who’s been missing for two weeks have been charged with willful child cruelty.

A Riverside County district attorney’s spokesman says Bryce McIntosh and Jillian Godfrey were charged Friday in connection with their missing son, Noah McIntosh.

Bryce McIntosh is being held on $1 million bail while Godfrey’s bail is $500,000.

Corona police say their investigation began Tuesday when officers spoke with Godfrey and unsuccessfully tried to contact Bryce McIntosh at an apartment.

Officers serving a search warrant at the apartment Wednesday found McIntosh inside with his 11-year-old daughter, but Noah wasn’t there.

Detectives then arrested McIntosh and Godfrey. It’s unclear if they have attorneys.

They are expected to appear in court Friday.
