TACOMA, Wash. (AP) -- Police believe a 3-year-old boy who disappeared 28 years ago was killed and buried in Tacoma.

Police said Tuesday they expect to dig up the remains of Wallace Guidroz in coming days in the city along Ruston Way.

The boy's father, Stanley Guidroz, said Wallace had been abducted in 1983 by an unknown couple they had met in the area of the duck pond at Point Defiance Park. A search was unsuccessful.

Cold case detectives began reviewing the case in 2007. This March they learned that Stanley Guidroz had been arrested in Terrabone Parish, La., in the slaying of his wife.

Tacoma detectives traveled to Houma, La., to talk to Guidroz. They say they now have information to uncover the boy's body.
