ANSONIA, Conn. (AP) — Police in Connecticut are looking for an “endangered” 1-year-old girl who went missing from a home where they are investigating a suspicious death.
Ansonia police say they conducted a welfare check at home in town on Monday after a relative said they hadn’t talked to the woman who lives there in a while.
Police said the girl’s mother was found dead in what is believed to be a domestic homicide. The little girl, identified by police as Vanessa Morales, should have been at the home but was not there.
State police issued a Silver Alert for the girl Tuesday.
Police Chief Andy Cota III says the girl’s father is at his parents’ house in New Haven and is cooperating.
The girl’s parents’ names were not released.
