"I just woke up and my 3-year-old is missing," Creato said of his son, Brendan, who was reported missing from his Haddon Township home at about 6 a.m. Tuesday morning.

The 911 operator advised Creato to remain on the line as police were dispatched to begin searching for the young boy, who's body was found shortly before 9 a.m. Tuesday in a wooded area off South Park Drive in Haddon Township.

Police are still investigating the circumstances surrounding the child's death. An autopsy did not reveal how, exactly, Brendan died.

“We thank the community, which searched this morning for Brendan and gathered tonight in his memory.  We appreciate your efforts and kind words,” Brendan's mother, Samantha Denoto said in a prepared statement Tuesday. “We do not have any answers about what occurred.”
