Los Angeles County authorities on Friday arrested the father of a missing 5-year-old Southern California boy who was the subject of an exhaustive search that stretched into Santa Barbara County. They said they had presented evidence in the case to the Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office and obtained a murder filing against the suspect.
The boy was last seen two days earlier, when his father and two relatives took him to Disneyland, deputies said.
Andressian's attorney, Daniel Nardoni, has said his client 'is adamant that he never harmed his son Aramazd and is innocent of the charges.' Nardoni did not immediately respond Monday to an emailed request for comment.
"There has been a great deal of speculation regarding the timeline around his disappearance", Andressian wrote in a statement issued almost a week after his son vanished.
Andressian told investigators he believed he was attacked, but he had no memory of the assault.
A law enforcement press conference regarding the arrest of Aramazd Andressian Sr. on suspicion of murder charges is scheduled for Monday.

Andressian spent 47 days in Las Vegas after leaving Los Angeles, taking part in activities and "displaying mannerisms that weren't consistent with a grieving parent". He was being held there on $10 million bail, according to the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department. The investigators recently noticed some troubling developments on him, for instance, he changed his hair color, shaved off his beard and began making plans to head to a country where he could avoid extradition back to the US. Later warrants were served to search the father's home in South Pasadena, as well as several other family members.
