HOOKSTOWN, Pa. (AP) — Authorities in western Pennsylvania are searching for a missing 4-year-old boy with a heart ailment.

State police in Beaver County say Wyatt Smitsky was last seen by his family outside their Greene Township home shortly after 7:30 p.m. Friday.

Police say the boy may have just walked away from his home. They say they are especially concerned because he has a congenital heart defect that requires medication.

Almost 200 emergency personnel and volunteers searched dense woods with the help of dogs until 3 a.m. today. Authorities also have been using all-terrain vehicles and a helicopter with infrared sensors to look for the boy.

The boy is described as about 4-feet-tall, with a skinny build and blond hair and blue eyes. He was dressed in a military-style brown T-shirt, blue shorts and Spiderman flip-flops.

Missing Boy's Death Ruled Homicide In Beaver Co.
Sep 5, 2009 4:45 pm US/Eastern

A missing 4-year-old boy in Beaver County was found dead after an extensive search by police and family members Saturday.

Wyatt Smitsky, 4, was last seen playing outside his family's home in the 600-block of Georgetown Road in Georgetown, Greene Township at about 6:30 p.m. Friday.

Sources have told KDKA-TV's Ross Guidotti that rescue workers found Smitsky's body around 12:45 p.m. in a neighbor's septic tank.

The tank had apparently been tampered with in some way and the case is now being ruled a homicide.

The boy's father has been ruled as a suspect at this time and has been taken into custody on pending homicide charges.

According to police, the boy had a congenital heart defect and was on medication.

Investigators told Guidotti that there were suspicions that this was not just a lost child case from nearly the beginning of the search. They also described the parents' demeanor throughout questioning as "aloof."

State police in Beaver County are holding a press conference at 5 p.m. on the case.

Police ask anyone with information to call 724-773-7400.

A young boy who was said to have wandered away from his home was found this afternoon stuffed in a septic tank, state police said, and his father is a suspect.

Four-year-old Wyatt Thomas Smitsky was reported last night as playing outside his home in Greene Township near Hookstown in Beaver County, when he was disappeared. An extensive search was begun. Wyatt has a congenital heart condition that requires medication.

Authorities today drained a spetic tank on the property and found the boy's body, said to Trooper Robert Lagoon of the Beaver County state police barracks.

"We have located the body of the child in a septic tank. We have a known suspect and anticipate filing charges," Lagoon said.

Lagoon later said the boy's father was the suspect. The father is in custody and being questioned.

"It's a sad situation. We don't know all of the facts yet," Lagoon said.

Search teams, dogs and helicopters looked for Wyatt until about 3:30 this morning, and resumed the search at 10 a.m. The FBI also assisted because of the boy's age.

At least 500 people from the community took part in the search.
