What to Know

  • An Amber Alert was issued Friday for Owen Hidalgo-Calderon, who was abducted from Sodus, New York, nine days ago
  • He was taken "under circumstances that lead police to believe that he is in imminent danger of serious physical harm and or death"
  • The boy's mother, who had been missing a week, was found dead on an NY farm Thursday where she is thought to have worked

The western New York search for a 14-month-old boy whose mother's body was found entered its sixth day Monday.

The search for Owen Hidalgo-Calderon has been a daily quest by authorities since the body of his 18-year-old mother, Selena Hidalgo-Calderon, was found Wednesday.

An Amber Alert Friday described the search for the missing boy after the child last seen May 16 was taken under circumstances leading police to believe he was in danger of serious harm or death.

The mother's body was found at a farm in the Wayne County town of Sodus where she and her boyfriend, 25-year-old Edward Reyes, worked.

Reyes was arrested Wednesday night on charges of tampering with evidence. Wayne County Sheriff Barry Virts says he admitted burying the woman but not killing her.
