On May 2, 2017, the Los Angeles County board of supervisors voted to offer a $10,000 reward to anyone providing information on the whereabouts of little Ara Andressian.
Ara, who also goes by the nickname Piqui, was reported as missing by his mother, Ana Estevez-Andressian, on April 22, after the boy’s father, Aramazd Andressian Sr. failed to return him to his mother a local police station in San Marino at the designated time of 8:30 a.m. Coincidentally, at 6:30 a.m. on that same morning, the father was hospitalized after being located unresponsive at Arroyo Park, but Ara was not with him.
Anyone with information should call the sheriff’s Missing Persons Detail at 323-890-5500. Anonymous tips can also be called in to L.A. Regional Crime Stoppers at 800-222-8477.
