UPDATED: An AMBER alert remains in effect for a 4-day-old infant who was abducted in Nashville by a woman posing to be an immigration worker.
A person of interest sought by Metro Police Tuesday night, just hours after the abduction of Yair Anthony Carillo, was located in New York and interviewed. The boy has not been found, police said, and the alert for him remains active.
On Tuesday, the child's mother, Maria Gurrolla, 30, told police she allowed the kidnapper into her East Ridge home in south Nashville after she asked to see her immigration papers. Once inside, the mother was stabbed eight times and her child was taken, police said.
The suspect reportedly fled in a black four-door car that is said to resemble a police-type vehicle.
Police said Tuesday night they did not yet known why Gurrolla's East Ridge Drive home in south Nashville was chosen by the suspect, but was investigating whether Gurrolla may have been followed while running errands earlier in the day.
The kidnapper is described as a white woman in her 30s, approximately 5’4” tall, who had her blonde hair in a ponytail. She was wearing a black blouse and blue jeans.
Anyone with information about the abductor, or anyone knowing a person fitting the above description who inexplicably has custody of an infant, is urged to immediately contact Metro Police at 862-8600, their local law enforcement agency or 1-800-TBI-FIND.
Gurrolla is hospitalized with wounds to her head, neck, breast and thigh. Her condition is not believed to be life-threatening.
