HAMPTON, Va. (WAVY) — Police say the remains found a week ago at the Hampton NASA steam plant are those of 2-year-old Noah Tomlin.
Hampton Police confirmed this on their Twitter Saturday. They say the Medical Examiner’s Office performed a DNA analysis to determine the remains found belonged to Tomlin.
Tomlin was reported missing to police more than 10 hours after he was last seen at his home in the Buckroe Beach area on Monday, June 24.
Hampton Police Chief Terry Sult said in an update on Friday, June 28 that investigators believed Tomlin was dead based on a “highly coordinated investigation.”
After 10,000 man hours of searching the city’s landfill and the steam plant, Sult announced on July 3 they found Tomlin’s remains.
