HALLANDALE BEACH, Fla. (AP) — Investigators have found human remains in the former backyard of a South Florida couple whose baby hasn't been seen in more than a year.

Calvin Melvin and Britney Sierra were arrested Friday on neglect charges after a child-welfare worker went to their new home and found only two of their three known children.

Police said Dontrelle Melvin was 5 months old when he was last seen more than a year ago and his father has given detectives conflicting statements on where he is.

Neighbors gathered at the scene Friday collapsed in sobs when authorities said human remains had been found.
