CORONA—The parents of Noah McIntosh were taken into custody and charged with child abuse on March 8. Authorities are still searching for the 8-year old boy who has been missing for close to two weeks.
On Tuesday, March 12, at about 7:33 p.m. officers stopped by the home of Jillian Godfrey, 36, regarding the whereabouts of a missing child.
On Wednesday, March 13, at around 8 a.m. officers from the Corona Police Department’s Special Response Team served a search warrant at Bryce’s home to locate the missing boy. Bryce was located inside with his 11-year-old daughter, but officers did not find Noah.
Based on evidence that was recovered during the investigation Jillian Godfrey, 36, and Bryce McIntosh, 32 were arrested by officers from the Corona Police Department for child abuse and were charged in court on Friday, March 15 with willful harm to a child. Officials are asking for the public’s help to locate the child.
Godfrey called the police for a welfare check after McIntosh wouldn’t let her see the child. Upon investigation of McIntosh’s home at the Encanto Apartments in Corona, Noah was not located. He was last seen around the 4600 block of Temescal Canyon Road.
Noah was raised by his grandfather, Doug Godfrey, who spoke to investigators and stated “If I had to point the finger, I’m going to point the finger right at him [Bryce McIntosh]. He knows what’s happened, he has a terrible temper, and I think it got the best of him.”
Anyone with information about whereabouts of Noah Godfrey is asked to contact Senior Detective Mario Hernandez at (951) 279-3659 or email Mario.Hernandez@CoronaCA.gov.
