The search for a missing 5-year-old boy from Houston may be over after a body was discovered in a Jasper motel Tuesday. The girlfriend of the missing boy's father has been arrested and charged with evidence tampering.

An anonymous tip led authorities to a Best Western Motel in Jasper, Texas where a body was found in a tote bag that had been there "for some time" according to a report from KPRC.. Authorities believe the body found was that of 5 year old Samuel Olson.

Theresa Balboa was arrested Tuesday night and may face additional charges, police shared during a news conference.

She was already out on bond from an assault case in November. KTRK reports that the specific charge was assault with intent - impeding breath.

Samuel’s father, Dalton Olson, was the complainant in the case.

KTRK has a timeline of events that suggests Samuel may have been missing for far longer than initially believed.

This is why you have to be very careful of who you let take care of your children. The person you are dating may not be a suitable person to have around your kids.

I am still side eyeing the dad. Sometimes when the significant other causes harm to the person's child, they may have had something to do with it as well.

Though he is the complainant in the assault case, I still think we shouldn't take him out of the spotlight just yet.
