Missing child, murdered Mother

An Amber Alert went out on Monday for 19 month old Alejandra Gomez.

Alejandra and her mother, who has not been identified, were from Mexico. They were renting a room in another person's home. Sunday the person who was renting the room to her, checked in her room and found the 23 year old woman dead from a stabbing. The baby was missing.

Police have a person they would like to speak with. He is Gildardo Rosas Rodriguez, 31, who is also known by the names of Gildardo or Fernando. Police believe he may have been present at the time of the murder and that he may have the baby.

Until today the relationship between the two wasn't clear. All police have said is that Rodriguez was not the child's father. One media station has now announced that Rodriguez and the victim have three children together and they all came from Mexico. But he is not Alejandra's father.

Police theorize that he may have returned to Mexico, but they have been unable to determine where he may have crossed the border. He may be driving a gray 1985 Honda Accord with license plate 1MGA355.

He is Hispanic, 5 feet 8 inches and 170 pounds with black hair and brown eyes. He was last seen wearing blue jeans and a T-shirt.

It is always scary when a child is missing. But especially now when police believe that the man who has the baby may have been present at the time of the murder.

The mother was stabbed and there is no information being made public that the baby has been harmed, so that is a good thing. But what happens if he tires of the infant or if he becomes desperate?

The fact that two different countries are involved also complicates things. But the two countries are now cooperating more when it comes to criminals of violent crimes fleeing across the border or searches for children. So there is hope that the infant can be found and returned to what is left of her family.

But she must be found first.

The Missing and Murdered Children also has a post on this and can be found here.

Alejandra Gomez has been found unharmed in a home in Southern Mexico. She is now in the custody of Mexican authorities. The Mexican consulate is working with Children's Protective Services and the police regarding the return of the child to the US, as she is a US citizen. Her grandparents, who live in Mexico have been notified of her recovery. FBI is in Mexico in that area and are working to locate Rodriguez, as he has not been captured.

Police say they don't know anything about the home where the child was found, who owned it or how long the baby was there.

Evidently there was a witness to Rodriguez leaving the Gomez home with the child on Saturday night, but the roommate did not find the mother's body until Sunday.

The article mentioned that Gomez and Rodriguez had previously lived together, but that he had returned to Mexico while she had moved to the address where she was killed. There is no mention of the three children she was alleged to have with Rodriguez.
