Bodies Of Missing Father And Baby Boy Found
Police searching for a father and his 10-month-old son who went missing on Friday have discovered their bodies in mountainous terrain in Arkansas.
Rescue teams had been searching Yell County's Ouachita Mountains for Brian Floyd, 33, and his son Harper after his wife - the boy's mother - was found wandering along a nearby road.
Brooke Floyd, 21, discovered with cuts and scratches, was arrested on Sunday on suspicion of hindering an arrest and endangering the life of a child.
Police believe the family travelled to the area on Friday before the woman left them at some point.
The circumstances surrounding the family's separation remain unclear though it is thought Brooke Floyd may have wandered off to get help when the couple's pickup truck broke down.
The truck was later found in a remote area 750 metres from where the bodies were found. The cause of the deaths is not yet known.
Yell County Sheriff Bill Gilkey would not confirm whether police suspected foul play but said the process had been "very frustrating" for search teams.
He said Brooke Floyd spoke of the couple separating on Friday night and that she listed her marital status as "single" on her police report.
"We felt as though she left the child in a very unbearable and possibly dangerous situation out here," he said, adding Brooke Floyd was of "very little help" until Monday, but that without her help police may not have found the couple's truck.
"It's not the outcome we had hoped for and our prayers and thoughts go out to the families involved."
