THE BODY of missing disabled toddler Thaddeus Sran, two, was “found by cops” on Thursday after “parents stop cooperating.”
The little boy was put to bed in his home in Madera, California, but the following morning, he was gone.
Chief Dino Lawson told yourcentralvalley that the body was found around 9.15am in Madera County and that the age of the body was approximately two to three-years-old.
Lawson also told the outlet that they cannot confirm that the body is Thaddeus’ until the test results come back, even though investigators “strongly believe” it is the young boy.
The Fresno Bee reported on Tuesday that the boy’s parents stopped cooperating in the investigation early on.
However, according to yourcentralvalley, the parents’ attorney said that they have been fully cooperative with the investigation.
Thaddeus was born prematurely and now is learning to walk, but typically crawls to move around.

Cops believe he went missing between 10pm on Tuesday night and 8.30am on Wednesday morning on June 15.
The force was criticized for not issuing an Amber Alert, but Lawson explained that to do that authorities need to have a suspect and vehicle description to include.
The toddler was last seen wearing a red shirt and Spiderman pants with a diaper underneath.
Neighbors were asked to check home surveillance cameras that may show people or vehicles in the area between the timeframe that he went missing.
Karina Prudente, who lives a few doors down, said the toddler’s home was completely fenced off, according to Fox 26.
Cops knocked on her door at around 9am on June 15.

“You should always lock your doors. I lock my doors. But as far as, ‘is there a band of roving individuals breaking into homes and stealing children?’ No. I can say that. Absolutely not,”
