Zion Authorities End Search for Missing Boy

Updated: Tuesday, August 27 2013, 10:21 AM CDT

Police in the northern Illinois suburb of Zion say they have ended their search of a landfill without finding the remains of a missing 5-month-old boy.

Police said they called off the hunt Sunday evening after doing "everything humanly possible" to find Joshua Summeries.

His bother's boyfriend, 26-year-old Demetries Thorpe, was charged with first-degree murder. Authorities accuse him of smothering the boy and placing the body in a backpack.

Prosecutors said they have surveillance video of him putting the bag in a trash bin, but could not locate the bag in the landfill search.
