Body Of Missing Child Found In Dumpster

MARTELL, Calif. (AP) - Officials found the body of a missing
2-year-old boy in a trash can hours after arresting his father on
suspicion of kidnapping and assault.

The El Dorado County Sheriff's Department says the body of Andrew Bailey was found Saturday in Martell, a town in Amador County.

The boy's father, Charles Bailey, was arrested earlier Saturday in Sonora after officials say he assaulted his girlfriend with an axe and nabbed the boy, Andew Bailey.

Scores of people volunteered in the sheriff's search effort once the boy disappeared.

Sheriff's Sgt. Bryan Golmitz says the investigation by local
agencies is being aided by the FBI.
