    Sodus, N.Y./Lyons, N.Y. - Wayne County's Sheriff announced Thursday night deputies located the body of a missing mother from Sodus.

    Selena Hidalgo-Calderon, 18, and her 14-month-old son, Owen, have been missing since last week. Deputies are still searching for the child.

    According to Wayne County Sheriff Barry Virts, a body was found in the woods Wednesday morning near Hidalgo-Calderon 's home on Joy Road.

    Thursday, the Monroe County Medical Examiner positively identified the body as Selena Hidalgo-Calderon. The Medical Examiner has not released her cause of death but police say this is a homicide investigation. Sheriff Virts believes she was killed inside of her home and her body was carried into the woods and buried.

    Sheriff Virts says her boyfriend, Alberto Reyes, was seen on trail cameras near the Joy Road home, carrying a shovel.

    He was taken into custody in Livingston County and charged with tampering with physical evidence. Sheriff Virts says Reyes told deputies he removed Selena Hidalgo-Calderon’s body from their home and buried her between two logs but did not admit to killing her.

    Again, deputies say they still have not located Owen Hidalgo-Calderon. One hundred people are expected to help in a grid search of the Joy Road area Friday morning.

    In a statement released Thursday, Hidalgo-Calderon's mother, Estela Calderon said, “My daughter and my grandson were my life, she was my first born and I feel like a piece of my heart is gone.”

    Reyes is expected to appear in Sodus Town Court Tuesday morning for a preliminary hearing.

    Anyone with information on the case is asked to call the Wayne County Sheriff's Office.
