A missing one-month-old Washington boy was found dead in a park and now police say his father has been arrested in connection with his death.

Police received a tip and were able to locate Sorensen around 10 a.m. on Jan. 20, KCPQ reported. However, the baby was not with his dad.

Officials said officers believed the infant was in danger because they believed Sorensen was actively evading police and was unable to provide basic life necessities for his son.

Sorensen was initially uncooperative with police, but authorities said he eventually led officers back into Kah Tai Park, where the baby was found dead.

The child's cause of death is still under investigation.

Jail records show Sorensen initially was booked on an outstanding theft charge from 2022.
