Officials are looking for a week-old baby who is still missing after three women were found dead -- and police now say the child's father has been found dead.

The Florida Department of Law Enforcement issued an Amber Alert for a father and baby who were missing after three women were found shot to death.

Miami-Dade police said officers had been searching for 49-year-old Ernesto Caballeiro since the three women were found shot and killed in a home.

However, Caballeiro was found dead on Wednesday, police say.

The week-old baby, Andrew Caballeiro, remains missing.

"We are urging the community to contact police if they have any knowledge of an infant that has been recently surrendered at a safe haven location. If you have any information regarding the infants whereabouts, contact 9-1-1 immediately," Miami-Dade Police tweeted.

Ernesto Caballeiro was reportedly related to at least one of the women but was not named as a suspect.
