The body of a 7-year-old Colorado boy was found “intentionally concealed” inside of his home leading to the arrest of a 16-year-old girl in connection with his death.
Jordan Vong was reported missing on Monday at about 4:30 p.m., according to the Denver Post. Despite police officers and FBI’s attempts to find the boy, they turned up empty after more than 24 hours of searching.
Denver Police Department Division Chief Joe Montoya told reporters they had all held out hope of finding little Jordan alive.
“Generally, in these types of cases, we hope the child is hiding or playing a game,” Montoya said.
But when he was not located by Tuesday night, police requested a search warrant that was granted by a judge, the newspaper reported.
Authorities began searching the family’s Montebello home and within 30 minutes found Vong’s body “intentionally concealed,” Denver Police Department Division Chief Joe Montoya told the newspaper.
