A newborn Houston girl remains missing Wednesday after her mother was fatally stabbed in their home Tuesday. An Amber Alert was issued in Texas, as well as parts of Louisiana and Oklahoma.

Six-week-old Shamali Flores was living with her mother in an apartment in Greenspoint, a neighborhood in northeast Houston. Her eye color is brown and her hair is black. She is also said to be of mixed race origin, with her roots likely being black and Honduran. 

The body of 33-year-old Carolina Miranda Flores, Shamali's mother, was discovered at about noon on Tuesday by her nephew, according to KHOU, a CBS affiliate in Houston. Police said the murder took place between 6:30 a.m. and 10:30 a.m. 

Flores has two other children, ages 7 and 17, and was also taking care of a teenage niece and nephew, according to KPRC, an NBC affiliate in Houston.

Shamali Flores' father, Marcos Mariano Tomas Palacios, is not a suspect. Previously identified by Houston police as Thomas Bernardez, Palacios was found to be in San Antonio at 10 p.m. on Tuesday.

There is a "possible theory" that a woman is a suspect, spokesman John Cannon told International Business Times. Houston Police Chief Art Acevedo told reporters that the abductor is likely familiar with the Flores family and the neighborhood.

"The individual who abducted Shamali may be a woman who has or will present the child as her own, and may even indicate the child was recently born," said Acevedo.

"We really just want to make sure the infant is OK because of what happened in the apartment to her mother," said Detective Sheila Spivey from the scene of the murder, according to the Houston Chronicle.

Information on Shamali Flores' whereabouts can contact (713) 308-3600 or the Houston Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS.
