LOS ANGELES (AP) -

Las Vegas Police and California officers arrested a father accused of killing his son Friday afternoon in Las Vegas.

Aramazd Andressian Sr was taken to Clark County Detention Center where he is held on a 10 Million Dollar bail until he is extradited to Los Angeles. 

The Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department says the father of the 5-year-old who has been missing for two months, Aramazd Andressian Jr, was arrested on suspicion of his son's murder.

The department released a statement about the arrest but the statement gave no details on what evidence led to it. A news conference is scheduled for Monday in Los Angeles. 

Investigators have been searching for Andressian Jr. since his father was found passed out in a park in South Pasadena, California, on April 22. Sheriff's officials say the father took prescription pills and was found in a car doused in gasoline. The mother of the 5-year-old reported him missing after her ex husband failed to show up to a meeting with her son. 

Police say the last time the child was seen in public was on April 21st when he was leaving Disneyland with his father. 

The father was initially arrested on suspicion of child endangerment, but he was later released due to lack of evidence. Los Angeles later filed a warrant for his arrest.
