HOUSTON —  Authorities have issued an Amber Alert for an infant girl in Houston who was reported missing after her mother was found fatally stabbed. Police initially believed the infant girl was with her father, but Houston police said later that they had found the father in San Antonio, but the 6-week-old baby was still missing.

Houston police said Thomas Bernardez “stated he was not involved in the murder.” 

Houston police began searching for Shanally Flores after officers found her mother’s body in her north Houston apartment around noon on Tuesday. Homicide detectives say the woman was stabbed several times, CBS affiliate KHOU reports.   

Bernardez, from Honduras, is believed to be driving a 2000 Blue Toyota Celica with a black hood and with Texas license plate CM7-L340. 

Houston police did not immediately release the name of Shanally’s mother.
