UTAH, Sept. 25, 2019 (Gephardt Daily) — An Amber Alert was issued just after 10 p.m. Wednesday for an infant missing from South Salt Lake.

The baby is Khaliaya Alvarez Caro. The suspects in her disappearance are her parents, Gabriel Brandon Caro, 19, and Jasmine Angelica Alvarez, 21, who do not have legal custody of the infant.

The baby’s grandparents have custody of her due to the parents’ drug use, history of domestic violence and homelessness, South Salt Lake Police spokesman Gary Keller said.

The incident started at about 8 p.m., he said.

“They came into the apartment through a basement window and went upstairs, grabbed the baby,” Keller said. “Only the grandfather was home. There was an argument that took place. They left the apartment with the 3-month-old baby.”

When the parents drove off with the baby, there were two other adults in the car, Keller said. The car, a gray four-door sedan, is believed to be a Toyota or Chevy Malibu, he said.

The parents were observed to be acting erratically and suspected to be on drugs earlier in the day, Keller added.
