Giovanni is still missing.

Ernesto Gonzalez told a newspaper reporter he murdered the boy and threw his body in a dumpster.

Giovanni’s mother believes her son is still alive and may have been sent to live with Gonzalez’s relatives in Puerto Rico.

Ernesto Gonzalez is still being held on one pending charge, misleading a Grand Jury.

He is due back in court July 11.
