UPDATE:

PASCO COUNTY, Fla. (WFLA) — The father who went missing along with his newborn son after three women were found dead inside his southwest Miami-Dade home has been found dead, according to the Pasco County Sheriff’s Office.

Deputies say Ernesto Caballeiro was found dead in Pasco County Wednesday. However, his son, 7-day-old Andrew Caballiero, hasn’t been located and a search is still underway for the newborn.

Pasco deputies are currently assisting the Miami Police Department in a rural area of Blanton near I-75 after a report came in of someone spotting a white van parked on the side of Jessamine Road and alerted deputies.

When deputies arrived they realized it was the vehicle from the amber alert.

An Amber Alert was issued by the Florida Department of Law Enforcement for Andrew Caballeiro earlier Wednesday and said he may be in the company of his 49-year-old father.

A briefing is expected to take place later this evening. Anyone with information is asked to contact deputies.

ORIGINAL REPORT:

TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA/AP) – Police are searching for a missing baby after three women were found dead Tuesday in a South Florida home, authorities said.

The Florida Department of Law Enforcement issued an Amber Alert for 1-week-old Andrew Caballeiro, who was last seen in the 21900 block of Southwest 187th Avenue in Miami.

Investigators believe the newborn infant is with its father, Ernesto Caballeiro, though they weren’t immediately calling the man a suspect in the slayings, Miami-Dade police spokesman Chris Thomas said.

Police were searching the southwestern Miami-Dade County neighborhood for the man and baby.

Officials didn’t immediately release the names of the victims. They also didn’t say how the women were killed or how they were related to the child.

Ernesto Caballeiro may be driving a 2001 white Chevrolet Express with the Florida tag HETY13.

The passenger van has two decals that say “Nesty School Services” and “Caustion: Transporting Children.”

Andrew Caballeiro is 7 pounds, 20 inches tall and has dark eyes.

Ernesto Caballeiro is 5 feet 7 inches tall, 240 pounds and has black hair and brown eyes.

If you see the Caballeiros, do not approach them and call law enforcement immediately.
