A father in Missouri has been charged with the murder of his son 16 years after the young boy’s disappearance. The father had previously claimed the boy was kidnapped.

Authorities charged Dawan Ferguson with the first-degree murder of his son Christian, who was 9 at the time. The young boy suffered from a disability that hindered his body’s ability to process protein. Ferguson allegedly did not give his son necessary medication and food over a two-year period starting in January 2001.

Ferguson is being held without bail.
