Las Vegas police trying to identify young boy found dead in Mountain Spring


LAS VEGAS, NV – The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children has provided a digitally enhanced photo of the young homicide victim. LVMPD is asking teachers in particular to pay close attention to this photo. The victim is between 8 and 12 years old, 4’11” and 123 pounds. Anyone with information is urged to call the tip line 702-828-3521 or 702-828-2907.

At first, police thought the boy had been identified after a concerned mother called to identify the boy as her son, but it later turned out her son was alive and well, camping in the woods with his half-brother and biological father in Utah. The mother said her son left their house on Thursday with the pair, but is alive and well.
