Houston Baby Still Missing After Mom Stabbed To Death

A baby girl missing since her mother was murdered has been found unharmed at a southwest side apartment, Houston police announced early Thursday.

The Amber Alert for 6-week-old Shamali Flores has been canceled, Houston police said Thursday in a tweet.

The newborn was taken to the hospital, determined to be healthy and unharmed, and is now in the custody of Children's Protective Services.

Police initially said they believed the baby was with her father, Marcos Mariano Palacios. The baby was taken from her apartment when her mother was killed Tuesday.

"I can't say 100-percent we're gonna clear him", Chief Art Acevedo, Houston Police Department, said in a news conference Wednesday afternoon, Fox 26 reported. Originally, authorities released the child's father's name as Thomas Bernardez, but that was determined to be an alias.

A woman who allegedly recently suffered a miscarriage and was trying to hide it from her boyfriend has been charged with capital murder for the stabbing death of Carolina Flores. According to police, Miranda-Alvarez was due to give birth to her own child in January, but miscarried recently. She is also said to be of mixed race origin, with her roots likely being black and Honduran. Shamali, who was taken to the Texas Children's Hospital, is healthy with no signs of abuse. Instead, she lied, saying she had been at the hospital giving birth. "That might be someone we may be interested in talking to", said Acevedo. "The quick partnering between the Houston Police Department and the Federal Bureau of Investigation to help recover Baby Shamali illustrates the strong alliance between our two agencies". "While we mourn for that mom that will never see her daughter grow up, walk, run the first time...but we brought her back and that is the most important part". That worker claims she saw the mother alive up until 7 a.m. Tuesday, but doesn't remember seeing anyone suspicious taking the little girl.
