Bluffton police say a body found in a rural wooded area of Wells County is believed to be that of Owen Collins, 3, who had been missing since early Sunday afternoon.
A 16-year-old juvenile from Marion was also arrested, and is charged with abuse of a corpse. An autopsy is planned, as police continue to investigate.
The search for Collins began on Sunday when Bluffton Police were called to the home after Barnes and Arnold reported the boy missing.
Police did a welfare check at the home on the 500 block of Normandy Drive in Bluffton, and did not find the 3-year old boy anywhere.
Police interviewed residents of the home and conducted a search in the area.
According to a 21Alive viewer, Bluffton Police and the fire department used sonar on a pond near the boy’s home, as well as K-9’s, but did not find anything.
