The massive search for a missing Brooklyn boy ended this morning, when police say the dismembered body of nine-year-old Leibby Kletzky was found in two separate locations.
Police says Leibby's remains were found in a Brooklyn apartment and a trash bin, where they had been wrapped in a plastic bag inside a suitcase.

Investigators say surveillance video shows the boy with an unidentified man and possibly getting into the man's car.

Assemblyman Dov Hikind, who helped head up the search for Leibby, said it is hard to comprehend what happened.

"It's something that I, like every school parent would think today, how could something like this happen? How is it possible that someone could take a nine-year-old, a little boy, an innocent little boy, and do what he did to this little child?" Hikind said on a phone interview with NY1. "People are out here in the streets where the family is. I met with the family many times yesterday and just tried to give them strength and hope that things will turn out well. Oh my god, oh my god."

Congressman Jerrold Nadler said in a statement, "When news of Leibby's disappearance broke, I joined my constituents and parents everywhere in a sense of fear and concern, mixed with a powerful hope that he would be found unharmed. Today, I am speechless and shocked by the brutality and injustice of this horrific crime. As a father and a human being, I am deeply saddened that so innocent a soul could be so cruelly taken. I join my constituents in Borough Park and people everywhere in wishing the Kletzky family strength and blessings to heal from this awful tragedy."

Leibby left Boyan Day Camp on 44th Street and 12th Avenue in Borough Park around 5 p.m. Monday.

He was seen on another surveillance video at 44th Street and 15th Avenue, off course from where his mother says they had planned to meet.

The boy is expected to be buried today.
