Authorities are urging the public to be on the lookout for a 15-month-old boy who was abducted in Boyle Heights, allegedly by his father.
The LAPD says the boy, identified as Noe Reyna, is believed to be with his father, Carlos Reyna, who does not have custody. An Amber Alert was issued early Wednesday morning after the boy went missing.
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. 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 is believed to be wearing a white T-shirt, blue jeans, brown boots and is using a red stroller. Noe'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.
