Police sketch of boy found dead by hikers

For nearly two weeks, police in Las Vegas released images and offered rewards for information that would identify a child who had been found dead on a desert trail.

(CNN)For nearly two weeks, police in Las Vegas released images and offered rewards for information that would identify a child who had been found dead on a desert trail.

He contacted the police in San Jose, California, about the missing pair on June 1, the Las Vegas police said during a press conference Tuesday.

Rodriguez had reportedly left a message saying she and the boy were leaving him and she would find a new house for the two, Las Vegas Police Lt. Ray Spencer said at the press conference.

On June 4, a friend of Rodriguez saw a sketch police had released to the media and contacted the San Jose Police Department, Spencer said.

Police in San Jose contacted LVMPD and investigators collected a pillow from Husted's bedroom, said Spencer.

That pillow provided the DNA that allowed the Las Vegas police forensics lab to positively identify the body found on the trail as the 7-year-old from San Jose, according to Spencer.

Spencer said investigators have learned Rodriguez was seen at a hotel in Las Vegas on May 27 and they believe that Husted was still alive at that time.
