PD: Abducted baby found safe, police looking for 21-year-old Reyes Holguin

Phoenix detectives tell ABC15 the missing 7-month-old abducted by his father was found early Monday morning.
 
Phoenix police Sgt. Steve Martos said the baby had been located with family members.
 
Those close the investigation say officers were told the child was found by relatives in the backyard of a central Phoenix home.
 
Authorities are still looking for the father, 21-year-old Reyes Holguin who is wanted in the kidnapping of the child and detectives tell ABC15 Holguin is also a suspect in an April homicide.
 
Martos said the latest incident started with Holguin and the child's mother got into a fight around 8:45 p.m. Monday night at a home near 20th Avenue and Sherman Street.
 
Detectives say Holguin assaulted his girlfriend then took the child and fled.
 
Police said Holguin is driving a 2003 Nissan Altima with an Arizona license plate. Authorities have a partial license plate number: B--3838.

 

Authorities say Holguin is connected to an April 27 homicide in Phoenix, in which a 27-year-old man was found dead near 16th and Van Buren streets.

Relatives at the home where the child was found told ABC15 the child and woman were both OK and declined to comment further shortly after detectives left the home Tuesday morning.

Anyone who sees Holguin or his vehicle are urged to call 911 or the Phoenix Police Department. No other details were immediately available.
