2-Year-Old in CPS Custody Following Abduction
MISSION – A child at the center of an Amber alert issued by the Regional Alert System has been found safe.
According to a release from the Hidalgo County Sheriff's Office, the 2-year-old Lizsandra Jennica Gaytan is in the custody of Child Protective Services.
Investigators say her abduction stems from the murder of 20-year-old Gilbert Gaytan.
His body was found on the 3000 block of Pradera Street located North of 8 Mile Road in rural Mission Thursday.
A warrant was issued for the 2-year-old's great-grandmother after authorities suspected she struck Gaytan with her vehicle before fleeing the scene with the child and the child's mother.
The 68-year-old great-grandmother and the mother of the missing girl turned themselves into the Hidalgo County Sheriff's Office Friday morning.
The 68-year-old is expected to be charged with murder.
