Authorities are seeking the public’s help in locating a 2-year-old boy whose parents were found dead of an apparent murder-suicide after a police chase in Montana.
CNN reports that 2-year-old Aiden Castiel Salcido is unaccounted for after his parents were found shot to death in their car. Police had reportedly pulled over the vehicle, which had Oregon plates, and suspected the male and female in the car were lying about their identity, before the car sped off. According to the report, the officers then spiked the car’s tires, and when they next approached the car they found the pair dead — the female passenger was shot in the head and the male driver was dead of an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound.
The boy’s parents, who were not married, have been identified as Daniel Salcido and Hannah Janiak. Both reportedly had warrants for felony burglary and Janiak had been set to report to prison on June 11 — the same day relatives reported her missing to the Medford Police Department in Oregon.
“The case resulted in criminal convictions and Hannah was scheduled to begin serving her sentence at the Jackson County Jail on June 11th, 2019. She did not show up for her sentencing,” Oregon police told CNN.
It is not known when Aiden was last with his parents, and authorities reportedly said he could be anywhere between Medford, Oregon, and Montana.
“Investigators are greatly concerned for Aiden’s welfare and are asking for the public’s help in locating him safely and expeditiously,” police told CNN.
Anyone with information on Aiden’s whereabouts is urged to call 541-774-2250.
