Body Of Missing Boy Washes Ashore

Washington state authorities say a child's body found on an island beach in Puget Sound is that of an 8-year-old boy who vanished with his mother last weekend.

Pierce County sheriff's spokesman Ed Troyer says the body found Thursday by a beach walker on Fox Island, southwest of Tacoma, has the same mohawk haircut and clothes as that of Azriel Carver.

An autopsy is planned for Friday.

A beach, water and air search was launched in the Fox Island area for the boy's mother, 29-year-old Shantina "Kat" Smiley of Silverdale, who disappeared with the boy on Saturday night.

Her abandoned minivan was found on a remote Olympia-area beach about 12 miles south of the island.

    Oh my goodness, let God and satan rest! Petty!

    While a serious statement that satan is in control wouldn't be accurate, neither would it be accurate to assume that God is in control of every single situation. People have more control than anything else in this world.. because it's... this world. It's also sad to me to see over and over that supposedly educated Christians will say that God has another angel when someone dies. Human people are not angels, and they don't turn into angels. We are his children, and made in his image - with a spirit. Angels do not have a spirit. Study what you say you believe in properly before you miseducate others. My condolences to the family and hope for answers.

    God is definitely in control. Satan has no power with God in command. Satan takes over only in the absence of God - when people do evil things, they do so in the absence of God.

    Yep, you are living proof that satan is in control. My prayers and thoughts are with this family. No matter how old you are when God is ready he will take you. He now has another Angel in heaven. Mr. Jethro you needs lots of prayer.

    It's amazing how someone could actually take what I said seriously. It just shows how fanatical some people can be, and not just about religion. I hope the boy's mother is found and the family can get on with their life.

    Let me just tell you something! God is always in control and I will not have too prove anything to you or anyone else, Bodine. That little fellow is with Jesus right now and there's a reason his life was short and only God knows why. Pray that everything is ok with the mom. Pray!

    To Pirategirl: I beg to differ. I say Satan is in control. I challenge you to prove me wrong. Satan is a terrible comforter and counselor. His evil knows no boundaries or limits. Give your grief to him!

    This is absolutely devastating. I pray for the family of this mother and son that they will find peace and rest in knowing that GOD is in control and he is a wonderful comforter and counselor. His love knows no boundaries or limits. Give your grief to him!
