The Corona Police announced that a missing eight-year-old boy was a victim of a homicide Thursday morning in a press conference.

“We did collect trace evidence that leaves no doubt that Noah was the victim of a homicide,” says Corona Police Department.

They also filed a murder charge against the father of Noah McIntosh, according to the Corona Police Department. The child’s mother remains jailed on child abuse charges.

Corona police say the body of missing 8-year-old still hasn't been found, but they have recommended to prosecutors that a murder charge be filed against his father, Bryce Daniel McIntosh. The boy's mother, Jillian Marie Godfrey, remains jailed on suspicion of felony child endangerment.

More details in the case of a missing eight-year-old from Corona were expected to be released Thursday morning by investigators.

Noah McIntosh disappeared earlier this month, and authorities have been searching around Lee Lake in Temescal Valley, for any sign of him.

Both of his parents have been arrested on suspicion of child cruelty and will be arraigned in April.

Noah had been living with his father, and his mother said she hadn't seen him in weeks  and eventually reported him missing.

Evidence was removed from the Corona apartment where Noah lived, but police did not give an indication earlier in March on what the item was before it was loaded onto a police truck.
