ROSENBERG, TEXAS: The Texas Department of Public Safety has issued an Amber Alert for a 1-year-old child who was abducted in Rosenberg. Leylani Ordonez was last spotted wearing a red Whataburger onesie before a 24-year-old man, Alexander Barrios Ordonez, the girl's father "absconded with the youngster," according to Rosenberg authorities.
Barrios Ordonez allegedly attacked a man and stole his pickup around 6.pm, Tuesday. He then went to the babysitter's house, where he abducted Leylani. The two could be in a stolen vehicle, described as a green 2004 Ford F450 with the Texas license plate T2160J and the 'Riverside Towing' logo. Anyone with information is urged to call 979-253-8039, as per reports by ABC central Texas.
Barrios Ordonez, 24, is characterized as a Hispanic male. He stands 5' 7" tall. He is 178 pounds and has brown eyes and black hair. According to authorities, he was last seen wearing a dark navy shirt, a blue windbreaker, and tan jeans. The father is considered dangerous by the police, and Leylani is in danger.
The case is similar to a missing 2-year-old girl, named Nadia Lee in Texas, as reported by ABC 13 on November 2. Authorities are looking for a missing 2-year-old girl who was last seen in Pasadena, whose mother died, and whose father has been accused of murder, in the death of her mother, who was also his common-law wife, Nancy Reed. Officials claimed that on Monday, October 31st, Texas EquuSearch relocated the search for Nadia Lee to Coastal Plains Recycle at 21000 Highway 6 east in Alvin. According to Houston police, Nadia was last seen near her father Jyron Charles Lee's apartment in the 300 block of South Richey Street in Pasadena on Oct 16 at around 8. pm.
On Thursday, October 20, officials spent the majority of the day searching Memorial Park in Pasadena, which is close to the complex. They don't have a comprehensive description of Nadia's attire, although she was last seen wearing a white short-sleeve T-shirt.
Nadia has brown eyes, and black hair, and is about the size and weight of a typical two-year-old. HPD Sgt. Blake Roberts stated at the onset of the investigation that it was a homicide investigation. Sources say investigators believe Nadia was killed there.
"We have received information, as well as physical evidence, and digital forensic evidence to determine foul play was involved," Roberts said, adding that DNA was some of the evidence found inside Lee's apartment. Tim Miller, the founder of Texas EquuSearch said, "I don't think this is going to have a positive outcome we would like to have. "One of my biggest fears is there may not be an outcome."
