A Kansas man is being held on $10 million bond after police discovered his young son missing and then found human remains on his property.
Kansas City police said officers first responded to reports of an "armed disturbance" Wednesday at the home of Michael A. Jones, 44. During the investigation, "it was alleged that a 7-year-old boy had been missing for an extended period of time and was possibly dead," police said in a news release.
The next day, officers returned with a warrant to search the property and found the human remains, authorities said, NBC News reported.
Officials have not determined if the remains are those of the missing child. The grim finding remains under investigation, police said.
Jones was arrested and charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, aggravated battery with a deadly weapon and abuse of a child, according to Wyandotte County Detention Center records.
