San Antonio -- Police in San Antonio say the reported abduction of a missing 8 - month - old boy was staged to cover up "foul play" involving the child. Police Chief William McManus declined to elaborate Monday on whether he believes King Jay Davila is alive.

SAN ANTONIO - San Antonio police have identified and arrested the woman seen Friday night driving off in a car with what authorities initially believed was missing 8 - month - old King Jay Davila in the During that time, a woman was seen on surveillance video getting into Davila's car and driving off.

McManus said at a news conference Thursday evening that it was King Jay’s paternal grandmother, Beatrice Sampayo, who dropped off Torres at the convenience store where Davila first reported that his car, along with his baby inside, were taken. Police said Torres is the woman seen on the video who drove away with the car.

McManus has said the baby was not in the car when Torres drove away with it.

“Angie Torrres heard from Beatrice that Christopher had severely injured King Jay,” McManus said. “Statements from multiple witnesses unfortunately lead us to believe that King Jay is dead.”

Davila told police that he had left the boy in his Dodge Dart, which was running, while he walked into a convenience store. During that time, a woman entered the car, which was unlocked, and stole the vehicle in which King Jay was strapped into his car seat in the back seat.

A couple of hours later, police found the car without King Jay or the car seat inside. Christopher Davila was charged with child endangerment shortly after the incident.

In a news conference several days later, McManus announced the arrest of the woman seen driving off in the car and said police believed the abduction was staged to cover up foul play.
