One of two vehicles being looked for in connection to a double murder and a missing child has been found in the 1600 block of Rosedale. Investigators are still looking for a 2004 silver Saturn SUV with Kansas plates KTY 310.

NBC Action News has crews on the scene and will update this information as soon as possible.

Police said Sunday a Hispanic woman in her 20's and her infant daughter were shot to death in their KCK home and 3-year-old Seth Guerrero was taken from the scene.

Officers were called to the 2000 block of South 10th Terrace just after 11 a.m., where they found the victims dead and Seth missing.

Police believe the boy is in danger.

Kansas City, Kan., Police Department spokeswoman Jackie Waters said the boy's father, 23-year-old Andrew Guerrero, has been named as a person of interest in the case. Andrew Guerrero is not the father of the girl who was killed, Waters said.

I'm so glad he was found safe. So many people wonder what the big deal is about parental kidnappings and this case is a good example of how dangerous these so called parents can be - never mind the potential for neglect and abuse, lack of education, life lived in hiding, deprivation of the love and care of the other parent, etc.

In my opinion, the big deal with a lot of people lately - adults, both men and women, and young people can be summed up in one word, but best understood if muttered repeatedly - me, me, me. These people just do not seem capable of coping with disappointment, failure, change, or responsibility. If it isn't their way, it can't be anyone's way. Selfish, little 's - all of them.

What's the deal with these young father's?
not that this is an excuse for what he did but this is a good example of why our returning soldiers need much much more counseling after returning from Iraq!
They are under SO much stress over there, they are gone for one year to 1 1/2 years at a time away from their families.
Its just too much for young men to handle! They do things over there that they are trained to do and the things they have to do and see on a daily basis are not what they would be doing on a daily basis here, then they return home and they are just supposed to switch off what they had been doing over there and be "normal"
Again this is by no means a reason for what he did but I bet anything it had alot to do with his recent return from Iraq!
There are alot of young soldiers snapping once they return home.

Thank goodness! I was looking at the faces of the little ones while out running errands today, and looking closely at the cars too.

I'm thinking that he came home from Iraq and found out his wife had a baby with another man and just flipped. The only one unharmed was his son. It's unfortunate, as the suicide rate of our soldiers on active duty is the highest it's ever been.

These young people are not emotionally prepared to deal with all the effects of war. There isn't enough counseling available for them it seems, also.

My EX partner was in the military and I couldn't agree more about soldiers needing counselling after returning from active duty. He suffered severe depression and flashbacks for nearly two years after he left the army. He struggled to adapt to civilian life and suffered bouts of uncontrollable anger. He saw two tours of Iraq, a tour of Seirra Leonne and two tours of Afghanistan during his service and he never received any sort of counselling after any of them.

Of course, this is no excuse for this father's actions. I am so glad the little boy was found safe and well - I only hope he is looked after in a loving and caring environment that will allow him to remember his mother and the sibling he lost.

From January 2009:

http://www.connectamarillo.com/news/story.aspx?id=247554#.VatgXs78FWY

Andrew Guerrero of Kansas City avoided a possible death sentence by pleading guilty in November to capital murder in the February 2008 shooting deaths of Nicollette Lyons and 8-month-old Leah Lyons-Reed...

Wyandotte County District Judge Robert Burns on Thursday sentenced Guerrero to life in prison with no chance of parole for killing Lyons and the infant, and life with parole eligibility in 20 years for the unborn child's death.

Hello, thank you for your kind words. I am the little boy that was kidnapped when he was three and saw your post and thought I would clear some things up, even though I know it is unlikely that this post will ever be seen again.


Either way I just wanted to go through and reply to some of these old messages and to thank those who thought about me. Andrew at the time was thinking that I was the only thing he had left in his life, thus why he took me and tried to escape to Mexico. He had a very if I can't have you no one can attitude toward love.

This was alot of his thinking at the time he is/was a selfish man that is unable to think about anything but himself. It has always been my this or my that as if he owned people and was entitled to their love and affection.

I agree a lot can be done for veterans returning to war. Going from a state of constant stress to peace time home can be incredibly hard to deal with. In this case, however, Andrew and my mother were having issues long before he left, she divorced him either while he was gone or the moment he got back because he was a manipulative and abusive husband.

Thank you so much for your kind words, I actually had no idea there were amber alert ads running during the super bowl but it makes sense now that you mention it.

Thank you for keeping a watchful eye on the children. People like yourself are the reason amber alert works so well and is able to save little kids like me and get them home safe.

Thank you for your post about vertern suicide it is always an important topic to promote. Your guess that my mother cheated on him and had a kid with another man however is insulting and wrong. She had divorced Andrew and had married Reed (his last name I do not know if I am allowed/should give out his first). My little sister Leah and unborn child Reily were Reed and my mother children a great deal after Andrew came back from the war. Thank you for your post but it is rude of you to assume something about a woman you do not know any context to.

The middle east has seen some of the worst fighting in the world for American troops here and there. I am sorry for your EX partner. Thank you for wishing me well and I was taken care of plenty. I was taken in by my grandparents on my mother's side and have lived a full life. I have gone to therapy for the majority of my life now but now I am going to college and have a girlfriend that I met in highschool that I love more than anything in the world. I live my life every day making sure I stay as far away from Andrew and his family, it isn't easy but I have found a way to make my life livable once again.
