- Parents of 8-year-old who vanished 2 weeks ago charged with child cruelty; search for boy continues
Noah McIntosh, 8, was last seen approximately two and a half weeks ago in the 4600 block of Temescal Canyon Road, according to police.
Authorities began to investigate Noah's disappearance on March 12, after his mother, Jillian Godfrey, 36, expressed concerns over his whereabouts. Officers attempted to contact Noah's father, Bryce McIntosh, 32, at a local apartment. McIntosh did not respond to numerous contact attempts by officers, authorities said. The next morning, officers served a search warrant at his residence in an attempt to locate the missing boy. Authorities said McIntosh was located inside with his 11-year-old daughter; however, officers did not find Noah.
Officers contacted Noah’s local family members, but no one can provide Noah’s current location.
Godfrey and McIntosh were each arrested and charged with felony willful harm to a child, according to the district attorney's office.
At this time, the police department is asking any community member that may have seen Noah, McIntosh, or Godfrey between February 20 and March 12 to contact Senior Detective Mario Hernandez at 951-279-3659 or Mario.Hernandez@CoronaCA.gov.
