Police Find Remains of Missing Boy at Trash Incinerator
Noah Tomlin   (Hampton Police)

Authorities say they believe they have found the remains of a 2-year-old Virginia boy who has been missing since last week, the AP reports. The Virginian-Pilot reports that Hampton police said they found the remains of 2-year-old Noah Tomlin on Wednesday morning at a trash incinerator near Wythe Creek. The police chief wouldn't comment on the condition of the body other than to say it had not been incinerated; an autopsy is pending to determine cause and manner of death. The chief also wouldn't comment on how police believe Noah's body ended up in the trash, who might be responsible, or whether more charges might be coming. The boy's mother, Julia Tomlin, has been charged with three counts of felony child neglect involving three children, including Noah. She reported Noah missing on June 24.
