A father was horrified to find his son dead in the attic of his home after searching for him and the child’s mother around town, according to police in North Carolina.

Jacksonville police said that they have arrested 41-year-old Angela Maria Olson, after being accused of murdering 1-year-old Tyler Rex Ordway.

Olson has been charged with one count of murder.

She was booked into the Onslow County Jail.

According to the criminal complaint, Larry Ordway saw his 1-year-old son at 5:30 a.m., before he went to work.

When he returned home from work, he did not find Olson or Tyler.

He looked in his house located on Dennis Road, but there was no sign of them.

He then drove around town to look for his son, but he did not find them.

Larry then filed a missing person report with the police.

When Larry came home at around 6:10 p.m., he went up to the attic, where he found Olson lying next to his unresponsive son.

Larry called for help and Tyler was taken to a nearby hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

During questioning, Olson told police that she drowned her son in the kitchen sink.
