    URGENT INFORMATION: HCSO Searching for Missing Child

    Hamilton County, TN – Earlier this afternoon, Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office deputies effected a traffic stop at the intersection of Dayton Pike and Boy Scout Road. The subject vehicle was driven by a female and contained her two year old infant granddaughter and a Latin American male.

    At the time of the stop, due to the heat, deputies asked the male subject to stand by near the roadway in the shade with the infant while they detained the female for questioning after finding out she had open, active warrants. During the course of the questioning, it became apparent to the deputies that the male individual had left the scene with the child. Deputies immediately began to search the area for the individual to no avail.

    The male party is described as a 37 year old Latin American male identified as Matias Martinez. Martinez has a valid Massachusetts’s driver’s license, brown eyes, and is approximately 5’ 10” tall.

    The name of the female infant is Octavia Afiya Shaw and she is two years old. She was last seen wearing a light blue dress with black sweat pants. She weighs approximately 30 pounds and is 2 feet tall. She has a bi-racial complexion.

    Anyone with any information regarding Martinez, the child, or their whereabouts should immediately contact their local law enforcement agency.

    Local law enforcement are currently searching the area where Martinez was last seen with the child.

    HCSO Detectives have also notified the TBI and an Amber Alert has been approved and will be issued shortly.

    The picture below is of Martinez and the child and was taken by the dashcam video in the deputies car from today’s vehicle stop.

    No further information is available at this time as this is a developing situation.

    Perhaps he only walked away because he didn't want to be arrested too? Hopefully he will take the girl back to her family, rather than harm her. She looks like she is a asleep on his shoulder in that picture. If his English is limited, perhaps this was a misunderstanding on his part? I'm hoping she will be found unharmed.
