A night-long search for his missing son ends in the woods: ‘He’s gone. I found him.’

For more than 14 hours — in his car and on foot — Frank Sepehri had been looking for his 17-year-old son, Navid. He’d last seen him the night before and knew he had gone to a nearby party in Bethesda but not come home.

Just before 5 p.m. Sunday, Sepehri had made his way to a wooded ravine. On one side, above him, was a row of nice suburban homes. On the other, the parking lot of a swim club.

And in the gap, he saw his son’s body, floating faceup in a patch of frigid water.

“Navid!” he screamed — so loud that a nearby resident came running to help.

He pulled his son from the water, sat next him and spoke by phone with his wife, Nasrin.

“He’s gone,” he said. “I found him.”

WTVD-TV reports, authorities searching for the missing toddler are asking residents to search their properties for anything “out of the ordinary” in the hope that someone will come forward with information that leads them to the little girl, whose disappearance in Onslow County Monday prompted an Amber Alert that has gained national attention.

Agents search woods for evidence in boys’ 1975 disappearance from New Lisbon center

NEWARK — FBI agents have searched a wildlife refuge along the Jersey shore as they investigate the decades-old disappearance of two boys who were roommates at a state facility for children with developmental disabilities in Woodland.

The search of the Edwin B. Forsythe National Wildlife Refuge comes as investigators refocus their efforts on the 1975 disappearance of 12-year-old David Williams, of Newark, and 17-year-old Steven Anderson, of Westville.

The boys apparently wandered into the woods surrounding what today is the New Lisbon Developmental Center off Route 72 and were never seen again.

Last month, FBI officials said they had promising new information in the case but declined to elaborate.

Officials have not said if anything was found during the search.

The FBI announced in October that the boys who went missing after playing baseball with staff members at a field near their residence in 1975

Search continues for hiker missing in Plainville woods

PLAINVILLE — Authorities said they plan to continue looking for a missing hiker who was last seen near the Metacomet Trail in Plainville over the weekend.

Police and fire crews searched Monday for Arthur Williams, 64, along the 62-mile-long trail that runs through the central part of the state.

“We’re just thinking he went out for a day hike and he slipped and he fell somewhere because it is quite dangerous out there, there’s a lot of tough terrain,” Plainville Police Lt. Peterson said.

Tim Kablick of Wolcott said when he heard the news about a missing hiker, he went out on his own to search for him, but did not have any luck.

“As I hiker I would hope that if I’m up there somewhere in the woods and slipped and fell, someone else who enjoys the hike would be out there looking as well,” Kablick said.

He said he was on
