Body of missing boy found at Lake Cachuma

Photos of 5-year-old Aramazd Andressian Jr. released to the media by his family.

The body of five-year-old Aramazd Andressian Jr. has been found after several searches by multiple law enforcement agencies at Lake Cachuma, according to officials at the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department.

No information about the discovery or where the information came from is expected to be released, said LASD officials Saturday morning.

The boy’s mother reported her son missing when his father didn’t arrive for a custody exchange in San Marino in April, according to reports.

Around that same time, Aramazd Andressian Sr., 35, was discovered unresponsive in Arroyo Park and gave contradictory statements to investigators on the whereabouts of his son and was arrested on suspicion of child endangerment and child abduction on June 23, but was later released based on lack of evidence.

A search by multiple law enforcement agencies was staged at Santa Ynez Valley Union High School several weeks ago.
