Mo. searchers suspect they have found missing baby

CARTHAGE, Mo. (AP) - Searchers have found the body of a baby and suspect it is the 8-month-old Carthage boy whose disappearance prompted a massive search. Eddie Salazar Sr. claimed his son, Eddie Salazar Sr., had been abducted late Thursday.

 But the kidnapping story seemed to fall apart Saturday, even before the discovery of the body. Police chief Greg Dagnan said Saturday that Salazar has been charged with making a false police report.

A short time later, Jasper County Sheriff Archie Dunn said Missouri State Water Patrol officers searching a river in a boat spotted a baby's body. The Carthage Press reported that authorities were waiting for the coroner for an official identification.
