Florida Amber Alert

An Amber Alert was issued in Florida for a newborn child and a 49-year-old man.

MIAMI (AP) — The Florida Department of Law Enforcement issued an Amber Alert early Wednesday for a father and baby who've been missing since three women were found shot to death.

Miami-Dade officers have been searching for 49-year-old Ernesto Caballeiro since three women were found killed in a home on 187th Avenue, spokesman Lee Cowart told the Miami Herald. The alert says 1-week-old Andrew Caballeiro was missing.

The father is related to at least one of the women but has not been named as a suspect.

The infant was last seen in the 21900 block of Southwest 187th Avenue in Miami, reports the Florida Department of Law Enforcement.

Authorities say Caballeiro may be driving a white 2001 Chevrolet Express, with Florida license place HETY13.

The vehicle, a passenger van, has a decal reading "Nesty School Services" on it. On the back left door is a decal reading "Caution: Transporting Children."

Officials advise people not to approach Caballeiro or the vehicle, but instead to contact law enforcement immediately.

The man is described as white-Hispanic, 5-foot-7, weighing 240 pounds, with black hair and brown eyes.

The newborn weighs 7 pounds, is 20 inches and has dark eyes.

Anyone with information regarding their whereabouts is asked to call the FDLE’s Missing Endangered Persons Information Clearinghouse at 1-888-356-4774 or the Miami-Dade Police Department at 305-471-2400, or call or 911.
