Police believe the infant girl is with her father, Thomas Bernardez, who is considered by investigators as a possible suspect in the death of Shanally’s mother.

Bernardez, from Honduras, is believed to be driving a 2000 Blue Toyota Celica with a black hood and with Texas license plate CM7-L340.

Houston police did not immediately release the name of Shanally’s mother.
