CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas (KWTX) - Authorities late Tuesday issued a Clear Alert and an Amber Alert for a toddler and mother abducted in South Texas by a man wanted on a murder charge.
Zaylee Zamora, 1, and her mother, Jezabel Zamora, 18, were last seen in the 6800 block of Windy Creek Drive in Corpus Christi at about 3 p.m. Tuesday.
