The Task Force investigating Tuesday’s abduction of a newborn baby in Nashville has released a composite sketch of the kidnapper. “The description was provided by the mother to a sketch artist from the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation,” Kristin Helm, the bureau’s spokesperson, told CNN.

Yair Anthony Carillo was taken from his family’s home Tuesday afternoon, authorities said. Maria Gurrolla told detectives a woman posing as an immigration officer abducted her 4-day-old son. Gurrolla was also stabbed several times by the suspect.

The Metropolitan Nashville Police Department is also seeking information on a late model Kia Spectra that followed Gurrolla’s car out of a Wal-Mart parking lot shortly before the kidnapping.

As the search for the missing newborn continues, Helm hopes someone steps forward with the tip that will bring him home. “We’re just working all the investigative leads that we’re getting,” she said. “We’re still appealing for the baby’s safe return and we’re trying to get out his sketch.”

“I can tell you right now, there is no plan to lift law enforcement off this case…. As long as there is work to be done, nobody is going to stop working.”

Police described the suspect as a white woman, approximately 30-years-old and 5’4” tall. She has blonde hair that was apparently pulled back in a pony tail.

If you have any information on the whereabouts of Yair Anthony Carillo, contact the Metropolitan Nashville Police Department at 615-862-8600 or the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation at 1-800-TBI-FIND.
