Kidnapped child found but mother still missing
Police found the 2-year-old boy abducted by his father in Rahway on Friday, but the child’s mother is still missing, officials said on Saturday.
The toddler and his father were found Saturday morning at a motel nearly 800 miles away in Monterey, Tennessee.
Sebastian Rios, 2, was the subject of an Amber Alert issued on Friday after police said his father, Tyler Rios, 27, of Highland Park, had abducted him and his mother. Rios has been arrested and awaits extradition to New Jersey.
But Rahway’s mother, 24, Yasmine Uyar, is still missing.
Relatives began to suspect that something was wrong on Friday when the little boy failed to show up to daycare and his mother failed to show up for his shifts.
Police went to Uyar’s home in Rahway on Friday to check if the family was okay, but found no one there.
Uyar’s sister told ABC7NY that the two adults are no longer a couple and that Rios had a history of domestic violence and homelessness.
Authorities are urging anyone with information about the case to call the Union County District Attorney’s Office, Lt. Johnny Ho at 908-403-8271 or Detective Richard Acosta at 908-347-0404.
“While we are relieved that Sebastian Rios has been found unharmed and Tyler Rios is in custody, we still urge anyone with information about Yasmine Uyar’s whereabouts to come forward and tell us what she knows, even anonymously, “he added. Prosecutor Lyndsay V. Ruotolo said Saturday morning in a written statement.
