SANDY SPRINGS, Ga. -- Sandy Springs Police Detectives issued a felony murder warrant Tuesday for a babysitter in the death of an infant.
According to police, Caris Ayala was babysitting a 5-month-old boy on Oct. 5 when the child became unresponsive and was taken to Children's Hospital of Atlanta by ambulance.
Police said the child, who was not named had severe brain injuries and stayed in critical condition. He was removed from life support and died Oct. 26.
Detectives interviewed the child's parents and Ayala. A second interview request with Ayala came from Sandy Springs detectives, and an attorney got in touch with detectives and made arrangements to talk to Ayala once more.
Ayala never showed up for the interview at her attorney's office, and has not been seen nor heard of since.
Police said they believe Ayala is traveling with her husband, Noe Castillo-Ramirez, and their 7-month-old child. A criminal warrant for hindering has been issued for Castillo-Ramirez.
Police believe the couple may have left the country, or they may be attempting to.
Ayala was last seen in a black Toyota T-100 with a Georgia tag BKM9384.
Anyone with information on Ayala's whereabouts is asked to call Sandy Springs Police Detective Sandy Rose at (770) 551-3313 or Detective Mike Bailey at (770) 551-3308.
