MIDDLETOWN, Conn. (AP) - Police say the body of a 7-month-old boy missing since his father jumped into the Connecticut River with him two days ago has been found.

Aaden Moreno’s body was found near a swing bridge in East Haddam shortly before 8 p.m. Tuesday. He’d been missing since Sunday. Police say his father, 22-year-old Tony Moreno, jumped from the Arrigoni Bridge between Middletown and Portland. Dive teams and helicopters had been searching for him.

Firefighters pulled Moreno from the river. He was hospitalized in serious condition.

Police say charges are expected.

Police initially believed Moreno may have taken the child, but later said they thought the child went into the water.

Middletown police spokesman Lt. Heather Desmond says the department’s thoughts “are with Aaden and his family at this time of sorrow.”
