The search for missing baby Owen in Western N.Y. continues


As many as 165 searchers spent Saturday searching for missing 14-month-old Owen Hidalgo-Calderon at Joy Road Farm in Sodus.

A State Police Helicopter could be seen circling the area for nearly two hours on Saturday. 
Officers also brought out K-9 teams to search wooded areas. 

Saturday’s search ended at 4 p.m. with still no trace of the toddler. The search started back up on Sunday when a underwater search team searched in water areas around the farm. 

Searchers include members of the Wayne County fire departments, NYS Forest Rangers, ENCON Police, State Police, NYSP Aviation, Federation of Search and Rescue, Missing & Exploited Children, Sodus Ambulance, Wayne County ALS, and the Ontario and Wayne County Sheriff’s Offices.

Anyone with information is encouraged to call the Wayne County 911 Center.

Selena’s boyfriend, Alberto Ebarado Gutierrez-Reyes, is facing charges in the case.

Deputies say trail cameras captured Gutierrez-Reyes walking in and out of the same woods on May 17 carrying a shovel. Deputies say he later admitted to burying Selena Hidalgo-Calderon’s body. At this time, he hasn’t been charged with her death however.

Deputies did say they found a phone believed to belong to Reyes in their investigation.

As for the Amber Alert, deputies said Friday they didn’t expect to find the baby alive. However, they put out the alert as a “Hail Mary,” hoping for a miracle.

Friday, more than a hundred volunteers assisted in the search for the 14-month-old.
