Police locate body of missing Middletown baby

The body of a 7-month-old boy feared missing in the Connecticut River has been found.



The body was found near a swing bridge in East Haddam shortly before 8:00 p.m. Tuesday night.



Police say Aaden Moreno was reported missing Sunday night when his father, 22-year-old Tony Moreno, attempted suicide by jumping from a bridge into the river.



Dive teams and helicopters had been searching for the baby since Sunday.



Moreno was pulled from the river shortly after jumping in.



Police say he is in stable condition and charges are expected to be made against him.
