SOUTH SALT LAKE — A 3-month-old girl who was the subject of an Amber Alert in Utah was found in Wyoming and both her biological parents were taken into custody, police said early Thursday morning.

The baby, Khaliyah Alvarez-Caro, was located when the Wyoming Highway Patrol stopped the vehicle she was traveling in around 1:45 a.m. in Lander, Wyoming, and arrested her mother, 21-year-old Jasmine Angelica Alvarez, South Salt Lake police spokesman Gary Keller said.

The baby's father, 19-year-old Gabriel Brandon Caro, was located in downtown Salt Lake City and is also in custody, Keller said. The pair is homeless and has a history of drug abuse and domestic violence, police said Wednesday, and the couple did not have guardianship of Khaliyah.

The Amber Alert incident started about 8 p.m. Wednesday when police got the call about a missing baby, Keller said.

The infant is under the guardianship of her grandparents and lives at South Parc Townhomes, 2248 S. 500 East, he said.

The couple went into the grandparents' apartment through a basement window, went upstairs where the baby was and “grabbed” the infant, Keller said.

“As the parents took the baby, the grandfather and Gabriel had a verbal argument,” Keller said in a news release. “The parents pushed past the grandfather and got into a waiting gray car.”

The grandfather was the only one home when the pair allegedly left with the child.

Two other individuals were in the car with the couple when they left, Keller said. It is unclear who was driving the vehicle when the couple left the home.

Anyone with information on the abduction is encouraged to call police at 801-840-4000 or simply dial 911.
