A 15-month-old child and his father who took him from his Boyle Heights home are now believed to be in Mexico according to authorities.
The LAPD says the boy, identified as Noe Reyna, is believed to be with his father, Carlos Reyna in Sonora, Mexico and are urging the man to return to the U.S. and surrender.
An Amber Alert was issued early Wednesday morning when Carlos Ivan Reyna abducted took his child after a judge told him that the Department of Children and Family Services would be taking custody of the boy.
A court ordered on Tuesday that the Department of Family Services should take Noe into protective custody. The parents were in court on a narcotics-related issue when they lost custody of Noe.
When DCFS officials went to the parents' home to pick up the child, they realized the child was gone - along with his father. Officials say they do not believe the father means to hurt his son.
Noe is described as Hispanic, 2 feet tall, weighing about 35 pounds. He has black hair, brown eyes and last seen wearing a yellow shirt, black shorts with two green stripes and black tennis shoes.
The father, Carlos Reyna is Hispanic, 6 feet 2 and 200 pounds, authorities said. He was last seen wearing a white T-shirt, blue jeans, brown boots and was using a red stroller for Noe. The child's mother is reportedly cooperating with authorities.
Anyone with information regarding Noe or Carlos Reyna's whereabouts was urged to call the LAPD's Hollenbeck Division at (323) 342-4101.
