      Missing infant reportedly found dead

      Jackson Farrey

      UPDATE: Jeffrey Farrey, 22, was booked Wednesday into the El Paso Texas County jail. He's in jail on a $1.5 million bond.

      Farrey was picked up Tuesday from the Delta County Jail in Escanaba by U.S. Army officials from Fort Bliss, Texas. Farrey is an Army specialist and stands charged with injury to a child by omission. The charges apparently stem from his missing five-month-old child, Jackson, whose body is believed to have been recovered in the Northeast Desert outside El Paso.

      Farrey's wife, Jenna, 20, remains in the Delta County jail awaiting extradition.


      The body of missing five-month-old Jackson Farrey was found in the Northeast Desert, reports the El Paso Times.

      Police would not confirm or deny the findings.

      The extradition date is still pending for Jenna and Jeffrey Farrey, say officials from the Delta County Courthouse.

      Twenty-year-old Jenna Farrey, wife of Jeffrey Farrey, has an arrest warrant out for violating the terms of her five year probation. In 2012, she pled guilty to child abandonment and endangerment. According to court records, the indictment states Jenna Farrey left three-month-old Blake in an apartment without adult supervision.

      Jeffrey Farrey, 22, is facing an AWOL charge for being absent without official leave.

      The couple was reported missing and endangered by the city of El Paso, Texas on Friday, November 15.

      The Farrey family made the 1,600 mile trek to Gladstoneâ??s Lakeside Motor Inn, where they stayed Friday night. The couple checked out Saturday morning â??without incident,â?? reports The El Paso Times.

      The Farreys then checked in to Escanabaâ??s Eagles Nest Motel on Saturday. Officers from the El Paso Police Department and Escanaba Public Safety responded early Sunday morning.

      In the motel was Jenna, Jeffrey, and 19-month-old Blake. Missing from the scene was five-month-old Jackson Farrey. Jenna and Jeffrey were arrested and taken to the Delta County jail. Blake has been placed in the care of local Child Protective Services.

      Tuesday morning, at least a dozen detectives and police searched the Farrey home. It has been vacant since late last week. Towed from the driveway was a black and white car with the image of a grenade on the side. Officials were still in the house at 7 p.m., reports the El Paso Times.

      The Farreyâ??s landlord, Octavio Hidalgo, was told by police on Monday that an investigation of the property would begin Tuesday and may continue for a couple of days, according to the El Paso Times.

      Escanaba Public Safety is continuing to assist the El Paso, Texas Police Department at this time.
