Mom searches for missing son in Santa...

SANTA BARBARA, Calif. - The search for a missing Pasadena boy returned to Santa Barbara County on Saturday.

The boy's heartbroken mother, family and friends made stops in Santa Barbara and Los Olivos.

Ana Estevez is remaining resolute and is holding out hope that she'll soon be reunited with her missing son.

"Everything and anything I can think of, I'm doing," Estevez said.

She passed out flyers at Alameda Park, the Santa Barbara Courthouse Sunken Gardens and the Farmer's Market.

"When they see what the flyer is, they're more than willing to listen." Estevez said. "I've gotten several hugs this morning and a few prayers."

The last time anyone saw her son, 5-year-old Aramazd Andressian, was 44 days ago.

He was with his father Aramazd Andressian Sr. at Disneyland.

Andressian Sr. failed to return the boy to his mother and was found passed out near his car in a park. Aramazd Junior was nowhere to be found.

Estevez is in Santa Barbara because Andressian Sr. told investigators he had taken his son to Lake Cachuma the day before he disappeared.

That prompted an all out search of the lake back in April.

Multiple witnesses reported seeing Andressian Sr. at the lake alone. Authorities have not found any evidence proving the boy was at the lake with him. 

"We've chosen a variety of different areas and since Aramzd Sr. was confirmed to be in the area at Lake Cachuma, we decided to target some of the areas up here as well," Estevez said.

Estevez lives in Los Angeles, but says she will scour the earth to bring her boy home.

"I've cried a lot of tears," Estevez said. "I don't have time to do that. I have to find my son."

The family is putting up posters and handing out flyers up and down the Central Coast. If you have any information you are urged to call Crime Stoppers at (800) 222-8477.

The Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors has approved a $20,000 reward for information regarding Aramzd's location.

The family has set up a GoFundMe account to supplement that reward.
