SODUS, NY (WROC-TV) – An Amber Alert has been issued in the search for a missing baby in Wayne County.
Friday morning, crews have once again descended on a Wayne County farm to search for the 14-month-old baby after his mother’s body was recovered.
Thursday, deputies said they had recovered the body of 18-year-old Selena Hidalgo-Calderon. Deputies said the body was found in a wooded area behind a home on Joy Road in Sodus where Selena was living with her boyfriend Alberto Ebarado Gutierrez-Reyes.
Selena and her 14-month-old son Owen were reported missing Sunday, May 20.
Deputies say trail cameras captured Gutierrez-Reyes walking in and out of the same woods on May 17 carrying a shovel. Deputies say he later admitted to burying Selena Hidalgo-Calderon, but said he didn’t kill her.
