MIDVALE — An Amber Alert issued Friday night for a 4-year-old child out of Midvale was quickly canceled when the girl was found. But police were still looking for a man who they say was involved in the abduction.

Anabella Porto Carrero was located shortly after the Amber Alert was issued, according to Unified police.

The investigation began about 7:30 p.m. when police responded to reports of a woman in the road near Bingham Junction Boulevard and Tuscany View Drive (7515 South) with multiple stab wounds. The woman was considered to be in critical condition Friday night, police said.

The woman, identified as Anabella's aunt, was watching the child when she asked her ex-boyfriend for a ride. The ex-boyfriend gave her a ride but at some point stabbed her multiple times, left her in the road and left with the child, according to police. An Amber Alert was then issued for the child and a stolen vehicle.

Anabella was later discovered walking in the road by a woman, who turned her over to police. The stolen vehicle was also located near 3300 South and State Street, according to police.

Jonathan Moises Wuanloxten Hidalgo is wanted in connection with an Amber Alert that was issued Friday night, Dec. 9, 2022. Unified police say the 4-year-old child who was abducted was located shortly after the alert was issued, but Hidalgo was "still outstanding."

The ex-boyfriend, identified by police as 20-year-old Jonathan Moises Wuanloxten Hidalgo, was "still outstanding" late Friday.

Hidalgo is described as 5 feet 8 inches tall, weighs approximately 180 pounds and has black hair. He is armed with a knife, according to police.

"This individual is still out there. We want to find him. This is a very violent crime," said Salt Lake County Sheriff Rosie Rivera.
