Deputies to give update on search for missing mom and baby in Wayne Co.

Local News

Search crews spent most of the day on scene at a farm in Wayne County as investigation continue the search for a missing Wayne County woman and her child.

Tuesday, deputies issued a missing person report for 18-year-old Selena Hidalgo-Calderon and her 14-month-old son Owen.

We’re told Selena was employed on a farm in Marion as a undocumented worker. That farm was the site of a search on Wednesday that included Wayne County Sheriff’s deputies, K-9 units, the medical examiner and DEC officers. However, at the end of the day, deputies ended the search and didn’t release any details about the situation. Deputies tell us they don’t want to compromise their investigation.

Crews returned Thursday and still few details are available in the case. Making matters even more strange, officers from the Greece Police Department were spotted at the farm. We’re told they are assisting with the search, but they couldn’t get into specifics about their role in the case.

Around 5:30 p.m., crews began to leave the scene of the farm. A news conference is scheduled for 7 p.m. where we hope to learn more about what’s going on with the case.

Family and friends held a rally Wednesday for the missing mother and son. A family spokesperson told us the 18-year-old faced an immigration hearing and she could be worried about being deported back to Guatemala.
