Investigators discovered that Aramazd Andressian had lightened the color of his hair, shaved off his beard and was making plans to head to a country where he could avoid extradition back to the United States, officials said at a news conference.

Daniel Nardoni, the suspect's attorney, is shocked by the arrest. The 5-year-old was last seen early Friday, April 21, in his father's custody. She added she would not have authorized charges to be filed in the case if she wasn't confident a jury would convict the father. Jackie Lacey said her office has successfully prosecuted murder cases without a body and that she was confident there was strong evidence that Andressian "committed this frightful crime".

"Investigators believe that this is a pre-planned event", he said. He was released after investigators decided not to move forward with charges.

Ana Estevez included this photo of herself and her son on a public Facebook post on May 17, 2017, when she first spoke out about the disappearance of Aramazd "Piqui" Andressian Jr. "I am counting the days until I see you honey and I will never stop looking for you", she said. Aramazd Andressian Jr. was last seen in Disneyland with his father on April 20, according to CNN, who was set to return the boy to his estranged wife two days later after a week in his care. When police made contact with Aramazd Andressian Sr. on April 22, it was at a hospital.

Nicole Nishida, a spokeswoman for the sheriff's department, declined to say what evidence led to Andressian's arrest. His gray 2004 BMW sedan was found nearby with its interior and exterior doused with gasoline.

Aramazd Andressian Jr. has been missing for two months. Before their statements Monday, sheriff's officials had said witnesses reported seeing the boy with his father there. She expressed great sorrow at the conclusion that her son is nearly certainly dead. Police served search warrants at his South Pasadena home, as well as at the homes of other family members.

The father saluted his son as a brilliant, adventurous and courageous man who did what he could to endure brutality and terror. While the North Korean authorities say the coma was caused by botulism and sleeping pills, Fred Warmbier does not believe it.

The Sheriff's Department has been mostly silent on the case since serving a search warrant at the home of Andressian Sr.'s mother almost a month ago.

The boy's mother reported him missing on April 22 after Andressian Sr. did not show up to exchange custody of the child. A second search of the Arroyo and the June 10th search of Lake Cachuma yielded no additional findings. "As a matter of fact, he has given us information in interviews that were untruths", Mendoza said.

In a statement read Monday by Bergner, the boy's mother thanked investigators and volunteers who worked on the case.

In a statement, mom Ara Andressian said: "My heart is shattered and I will miss my son immensely...for the rest of my life".

Authorities search a brush area of Arroyo Park on May 18, 2017. If my son was missing, I would be doing things that (the boy's mother) was doing.
