Police had initially believed the infant girl was with her father, Thomas Bernardez, who is considered by investigators as a possible suspect in the death of Shanally’s mother.

However, late Tuesday, police said Bernardez and his car had been located in San Antonio but the infant girl was still missing.

Houston police say Bernardez has claimed that he was not involved in the murder.

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

However, family members have identified her to local media as Carolina Flores.
