By: Jamel Valencia
EL PASO, Texas - Blake Farrey is now under Texas foster care. His parents, Jenna and Jeffrey Farrey, are currently being held in the El Paso County Jail.
Blake Farrey was taken into foster care in Michigan after authorities located his parents who went missing from El Paso at a hotel.
As KFOX14 previously reported, Jenna Farrey was being held at the Delta County Jail in Michigan on a fugitive from justice warrant. She was later extradited to the El Paso County Jail.
The boy's father, Jeffrey Farrey, a Fort Bliss soldier, was taken to the El Paso County Jail on a charge of injury to a child by omission.
On Nov. 20, police investigators found what they believed to be the remains of their other son, Jackson, in a desert area outside of Orogrande, N.M. He was 5 months old.
According to Child Protective Services in El Paso, Blake is now being cared for under Texas foster care.
"Our primary concern is the safety and welfare of this child. He's seeing a pediatrician and will be receiving any necessary therapy. We are also seeking appropriate relative placement," said CPS spokesman Paul Zimmerman.
