Amber Alert issued for Albuquerque 10-year-old

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) –  Tuesday New Mexico State Police released that the white Hyundai Sonata involved in the recent Amber Alert has been located, but 10-year-old Carlos Hernandez is still missing. NMSP also reports they believe he is still with Angelique but their method of travel is unknown.

Monday NMSP issued an Amber Alert for the 10-year-old. Police say he was abducted by his non-custodial mother, Angelique Sanchez, 39, and was last seen around 1 p.m. Monday at 1041 Lamberton Place in northeast Albuquerque.

According to NMSP, on Monday the pair was last seen traveling in a white Hyundai Sonata with a New Mexico chile license plate reading “BDJZ56.” Carlos is 4 feet, 5 inches tall, weighs 60 pounds, and has brown eyes and brown hair. Angelique is 5 feet, 3 inches tall, weighs 150 pounds, and has brown eyes and brown hair.

NMSP spotted Carlos with Angelique Monday at around 12:30 p.m. at New Mexico Human Services. However, as officers attempted to contact Angelique, she fled the area in the Sonata with Carlos inside the vehicle. Police say she rammed into an NMSP patrol vehicle while fleeing the scene and was last seen driving the wrong way on Menaul Boulevard. NMSP did not initiate a pursuit because Carlos was in the vehicle.

Sanchez had her parental rights suspended by the courts after she struck Carlos at a methadone clinic. She has had a warrant out for her arrest since April 12, after she did not return him after being allowed to see him over spring break. A counselor at Carlos’ school advised his legal guardian that Sanchez was attempting to enroll the child at a new school.

Anyone with information is asked to call NMSP at 505-841-9256 or 911.
