SALT LAKE CITY — An Amber Alert was issued Wednesday for an infant who was allegedly abducted in December by his mother.
Davis County sheriff’s deputies are looking for a 2-week-old boy whom they are calling “Baby Torres.” They are also looking for Maria Ann Torres, 36, the boy’s mother.
She is described as a white female, about 5 feet, 3 inches tall, weighing 130 pounds with brown eyes and brown hair. She has several tattoos on her arms, neck, wrist and ankle, according to authorities.
Police are also looking for a Red 2004 Volvo S-80 with Utah license plate F55-1PE that she could be driving.
Torres was born in a Salt Lake hospital on Dec. 20 and was taken by his mother from the hospital two days later, according to the sheriff's office.
But it wasn’t until a petition for custody was filed in 2nd District Court on Tuesday that raised allegations that Torres could be in danger that prompted officials to issue an Amber Alert on Wednesday.
Anyone with information is asked to call 911 or the sheriff's office at 801-451-4141.
