Kansas City Police have issued an amber alert for the 4-year-old daughter of a woman whose body was discovered this morning in her Kansas City apartment.
Police were called to the apartment at 4023 Harvard Circle about 9:15 a.m. and discovered the 27-year-old woman’s body. The apartment complex is near Interstate 70 and Sterling Avenue.
The woman’s 4-year-old daughter, Allyson Corrales, was missing.
Police also are looking for the girl’s father, Luis F. Corrales, 31, who they are describing as a person of interest.
The family’s car, a red 1999 Kia Sportage, with Missouri license plate PB1 R3R, is also missing.
Luis Corrales’ car was towed from the apartment parking lot this afternoon.
Anyone with information is asked to call the TIPS hotline at 816-474-8477.
Several children reported as missing to the NCMEC have been victims of violent abductions. Most of them remain missing.
Update: An AMBER Alert remains in effect for missing Haleigh Cummings in Florida after 25 days but the alert in Kansas City for abducted Allison is cancelled one day later even though she remains missing.
Kansas City police have canceled the Amber Alert for 3-year-old Allison Corrales, although the young girl and her father remain missing.
Authorities will continue searching for the pair, police Capt. Rich Lockhart said, but the incident is no longer classified as an Amber Alert. The urgent alerts lose effectiveness if kept in place more than 24 hours, he said.
