SAN ANTONIO, TX (KXXV) -

The body of 8-month-old King Jay Davila was reportedly found after the baby's father lead authorities to it Friday morning.

According to News 4 San Antonio, the child's body was found in a backpack, buried under a bridge on the city's northeast side. The body was wrapped in a blanket.

San Antonio police arrested three people in connection with the boy's disappearance on Thursday.

According to KSAT, Police Chief William McManus said they are charging the father, grandmother and cousin in connection with the disappearance of King Jay Davila. Police said they are being charged with tampering with evidence in the missing baby case.

McManus said the father, Christopher Davila, the baby's grandmother, Beatrice Sampayo and the cousin, Angie Torres, are in custody.

It was reported that Davila may have "severely injured" King Jay, and police are still searching for the body. Police said they are searching several locations and the case is still ongoing.

According to KSAT, McManus said the boy's father told police the woman was his cousin. He also said the disappearance of the boy was not a kidnapping.

The woman was dropped off near a gas station on Jan. 4, when she got into Davila's car and drove away.

McManus said the baby was not in the car, and is still missing.

The FBI has now joined the San Antonio Police Department in the search for a missing 8-month-old.  

Police have charged a missing 8-month-old boy's father with child endangerment after leaving him in the car that was taken. 

According to police, King Jay Davila was taken while inside his father’s vehicle on the 300 block of Enrique Barrera near SW 34th Street on Friday.

He was last seen wearing a blue onesie.

According to KSAT, Davila was taken in for questioning and will be charged with child endangerment. They said Davila left the car running and the driver's door was open while he went inside a convenience store to make a purchase.

Davila told police that a woman who was walking down the street got into the car and drove off. 

The car, a white Dodge Dart, was found near Rodriguez Park with no baby, no car seat and no keys, according to KSAT.

San Antonio police said in a press conference that they believed the father knew the woman who took the car and baby. 

On Saturday evening, the police announced that agents with the FBI were assisting in the investigation of King's disappearance. 

SAPD said that the agents were assisting voluntarily, as they were not being paid during the government shutdown. 

If anyone has any information on the boy, you are asked to call 911 immediately.
