Yasmine Uray, a young mother who was allegedly abducted with her 2-year-old son has been found dead in Tennessee, her family said. Uray who was 24 years old, was found in Tennessee, where authorities also safely located her baby.
Sebastian Rios and his mother were reported missing Friday, with authorities canceling the Amber Alert that has been activated in New Jersey and Pennsylvania after finding the boy early Saturday.
According to nbcphiladelphia, the suspected abductor is the boy’s father, Tyler Rios, who was arrested in the city of Monterey, where police found his son.
The victim´s mother, Karen Uray told reporters that her daughter suffered a violent past with Rios. “I would like to say that it’s something we never thought would happen but when you live with a child that’s going through a domestic violence relationship for a long time, it is something you learn to know it’s going to happen at some point. You always hope it isn’t, you always pray that it isn’t,” she said.
“This is probably the hardest few days of our lives. (Sebastian is) happy, he’s playing right now. He’s obviously confused, asking for mommy, “she added.
The New Jersey family’ drama started on Friday, when the young mother and her son Sebastian Rios were allegedly abducted by Yasemin’s ex-partner.
The Highland Park Police Department left a voicemail for Karen Uyar’s other daughter, Marissa, alerting her that Yasemin had been assaulted. When an officer went to her home in Rahway, Yasemin and her son were not there. Her car, a silver late-model Ford Fiesta, was also gone, Karen Uyar said.
Sebastian and Tyler Rios were found Saturday in Monterey, Tennessee, acting Union County Prosecutor Lyndsay Ruotolo and Rahway Police Department Director Jonathan Parham said. Tyler Rios was arrested without incident, according to the authorities. He is currently being held in Tennessee and will be extradited to New Jersey to face criminal charges in Union County Superior Court
