CLEVELAND, Ohio — Authorities in Cleveland say that they believe that a body found in a suburban Cleveland landfill is that of a missing three-year-old boy.

According to FOX 8 in Cleveland, Emilliano Terry was last seen Sunday around 5:05 p.m. at Kossuth Park at East 121st Street and Williams Avenue in Cleveland. The boy’s mother said she only took her eyes off of her son for a minute to tend to another child, and the next minute, the boy was gone.

A 5-year-old boy told police he saw Emilliano get into a black car. The boy was unable to provide any specific details about the vehicle, so police were unable to issue an Amber Alert. Investigators say they contacted the boy’s father. They say there are no custody issues and don’t believe he had any involvement in the boy’s disappearance.

On Monday evening, the Cuyahoga County Coroner’s Office confirmed they’ve been called to the waste management facility in Oakwood, Ohio.

Terry was described as 30″ tall and roughly 30 pounds. He was last seen wearing a gray North Face coat, a red and black sweater, blue jeans and blue and black Champion tennis shoes.
