    Shanally Flores (6 weeks) missing from Houston, TX since 12/19/17



    http://abc13.com/search-for-baby-con...found/2799869/


    The search for a baby girl continues, nearly 24 hours after her mother was found murdered. Detectives returned to the scene this morning.

    Yesterday, an Amber Alert was issued for 6-week-old Shanally Flores, who was nowhere to be found when police were called to her family's home at 185 Goodson Drive in Greenspoint.

    Her mother, Carolina Flores, was found by a family member, stabbed multiple times. The murder weapon was missing.

    Houston police initially believed the baby was with Thomas Bernardez, the child's father. However, he was found in San Antonio around 10 p.m. on Tuesday. Police say he did not have Shanally with him and that he denied having anything to do with the murder of Shanally's mother.

    Bernardez was originally called a person of interest. Police released a picture of him standing in front of a blue Toyota Celica, linking the car to the Amber Alert. Now, investigators say Bernardez never owned that Toyota Celica and it is not linked to Shanally's disappearance.

    Bernardez was released and hasn't been charged with anything so far.

    There has been conflicting information about Shanally's age and size. Law enforcement has provided a description of the baby as being 30 inches tall and 20 pounds. She is believed to be Honduran and possibly black or of mixed origin.

    If you know where the baby is, call Houston police at 713-308-3600.

    This case is so confusing. Almost every article has a different spelling of the babies name. They got the fathers name wrong. They were reporting the baby was 6 weeks old, then 11 months. I think we are back to 6 weeks now. People were questioning the size of the baby at 6 weeks old as well. I don't even know anymore what her name is or her age...how can people find the fucking baby if they don't know what they are looking for???

    Anyway, latest article...

    Houston Police Chief Art Acevedo pleaded with the public Wednesday for help finding a female suspect they believe has taken the baby.

    Acevedo said there is a $5,000 reward from Crime Stoppers for tips in the baby's disappearance.

    "This woman deserves justice. Her family deserves justice. Her child deserves to be back home with her loved ones," Acevedo said.

    The police chief said the suspect likely has a familiarity with the murdered woman's family and the Greenspoint area.
    Acevedo also said the suspect is very likely presenting the kidnapped child as her own.

    "Think about anyone who suddenly has a child who you didn't know was pregnant, or someone who recently lost a child," Acevedo said. "We want to bring this child back to the family."

    Yesterday, an Amber Alert was issued for Chamali Flores, who was nowhere to be found when police were called to her family's home.

    Her mother, Carolina Flores, was found by a family member, stabbed multiple times. The murder weapon was missing, according to investigators.

    Houston police initially believed the baby was with the child's father, now identified as Marcos Mariano Tomas Palacios, 34. However, he was found in San Antonio around 10 p.m. on Tuesday.

    On Tuesday, investigators identified the father as Thomas Bernardez, but updated the father's identity during the press conference this afternoon.

    Police said Palacios did not have Chamali with him and that he denied having anything to do with the murder of Chamali's mother.

    Palacios was originally called a person of interest. Police released a picture of him standing in front of a blue Toyota Celica, linking the car to the Amber Alert. Now, investigators say he never owned that Toyota Celica and it is not linked to Chamali's disappearance.

    The father was released and hasn't been charged with anything so far.

    There has been conflicting information about Chamali's age and size. Law enforcement has provided a description of the baby as being 30 inches tall and 20 pounds. She is believed to be Honduran and possibly black or of mixed origin.

    If you know where the baby is, call Houston police at 713-308-3600. You can also submit an anonymous tip to Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS or online at www.crime-stoppers.org.

    Found the baby alive. There's been an arrest.

    Houston police have arrested a woman they said recently suffered a miscarriage for the killing of a mother who'd given birth weeks earlier, officials said Thursday. The victim's 6-week-old baby was found safe at a Houston apartment complex earlier this morning, police said.

    Erika Jisela Miranda-Alvarez, 28, has been charged with capital murder in the death of Carolina Miranda Flores, 33, who was found stabbed to death Tuesday morning, Houston Police Chief Art Acevedo said during a press conference today. Flores' 6-week-old daughter, Shamali Flores, was recovered a little after 1 a.m. Thursday morning by police and was "very healthy and unharmed." She was transported to a local hospital as a precaution but is "doing well" and is in the custody of Child Protective Services.

    Miranda-Alvarez has not yet entered a plea.

    Acevedo said Miranda-Alvarez "recently had a miscarriage, which she was attempting to hide from her boyfriend." The boyfriend has not been charged, although he is still under investigation, police said.

    A family member discovered Flores, 33, dead with multiple stab wounds in a northeast Houston apartment Tuesday morning, and her daughter, Shamali, was nowhere to be found, authorities said.

    Miranda-Alvarez was friends with the victim's brother, police said. Investigators had theorized that the suspect might be a woman who had recently lost a baby, Acevedo said.

    "This woman was due to have a baby [this] January and she lost that baby, never was able to deliver that baby," Acevedo said. "She continued to fake her pregnancy with loved ones and then at some point, actually on Dec. 19, she went to the home of our victim and brutalized her and murdered her."

    Acevedo had said at a press conference on Wednesday that the suspect was likely familiar with the family and the neighborhood and could be a woman who "may present the child as her own."

    I don't understrand this mentality. I had a m/c. I didn't not for one second want to go kill a pregnant woman and kidnap her baby. I just don't understand it. You will get caught...and IT'S NOT YOUR BABY! I'm not a fa of the Reborn dolls, but my God, get one of those before killing someone and kidnapping a child. They even have baby dolls that are more realistic now. Get one of those!! Do something, but killing someone for a baby is NOT the answer and at the end of the day, IT'S NOT YOUR BABY! Maybe it's because most of my brain chemistry is normal...

    RIP Carolina

    The only good thing is that the baby is alive.
