UNION COUNTY, NJ — The child who was the subject of a widely disseminated Amber Alert yesterday afternoon has been located safe – although his mother remains missing, and his father, who allegedly abducted both, is now in custody, acting Union County Prosecutor Lyndsay V. Ruotolo and Rahway Police Department Director Jonathan Parham jointly announced Saturday morning.
Sebastian Rios, 2, was found earlier Saturday in Monterey, Tennessee, where 27-year-old Tyler Rios of Highland Park was arrested without incident. The boy’s mother, 24-year-old Yasmine Uyar of Rahway, has yet to be found.
An investigation led by the Union County Prosecutor’s Office, and assisted by members of the FBI’s Newark Field Office and satellite offices, under the leadership of Special Agent in Charge George M. Crouch, Jr.; the New Jersey State Police, under the leadership of Colonel Patrick J. Callahan; and the Rahway Police Department, under the leadership of Director Parham, led to Rios being identified as a suspect in the case after Sebastian Rios did not show up for daycare Friday and Uyar did not arrive for scheduled work shifts. A welfare check was conducted on Uyar’s home by members of the Rahway Police Department Friday morning, but no one was found inside.
Shortly thereafter, the State Police issued an Amber Alert that was sent to privately owned cell phones, broadcast on electronic billboards along highways in New Jersey and beyond, and widely shared via social media.
Tyler Rios remains in custody in Tennessee pending extradition back to New Jersey and the filing of criminal charges in Union County Superior Court.
“While we are relieved that Sebastian Rios has been found safe and that Tyler Rios is in custody, we are still urging anyone with information about the whereabouts of Yasmine Uyar to come forward and tell us what they know, even anonymously,” Prosecutor Ruotolo said.
Anyone with information about this matter is still urged to contact Prosecutor’s Office Lt. Johnny Ho at 908-403-8271 or Detective Richard Acosta at 908-347-0404.
