SODUS, N.Y. (WCBS 880/AP) -- Police in western New York are searching for a 14-month-old boy after his mother's body was found in a bag hidden in the woods.

An AMBER Alert has been issued for the child, Owen Hidalgo-Calderon.

"The child was taken under circumstances that lead police to believe that they are in imminent danger of serious physical harm and or death," the alert states. "Anyone with any information on this abduction is asked to call the Wayne County Sheriffs Department at (866) NYS-AMBER or dial 911 to provide information on a report or sighting."

Authorities say the boy needs asthma medication. It is not known what he was last wearing.

The Wayne County Sheriff's office said 18-year-old Selena Hidalgo-Calderon's body was found Thursday a farm in Sodus where she reportedly had worked. She had been missing for a week.

Her boyfriend, Everardo Reyes, was arrested on charges of tampering with physical evidence.

Police say the child, Owen Hidalgo-Calderon, has not been found. Police were to continue searching the area east of Rochester on Friday.

Rebecca Fuentes of the Workers' Center of Central New York told the Rochester Democrat and Chronicle that Hidalgo-Calderon was from Guatemala and was being deported. She says the mother was in the process of applying for asylum.
