Arrest warrants issued for Hispanic couple

Arrest warrants have been issued for a Hispanic couple who may have fled to Mexico after authorities found a dead child in their home, police said. The Bakersfield Police Department found a 3-year-old girl dead and a 4-year-old boy sleeping in the home after responding to a call from the children's aunt. Police want to question Alberto Garcia, 26, and Carla Garcia, 26, about the child's death and check on the well-being of three other children believed to be accompanying them. Police said the Garcias were trying to adopt the young children, who were the natural children of Carla Garcia's sister. Police have issued murder and felony child endangerment warrants and are still working on obtaining an unlawful flight warrant through the FBI. The three children believed to still be with the couple have been identified as Carlos Joe Solvalvarro, 9; Crystal Garcia, 5; and Alberto Garcia Jr., 4. Carlos Solvalvarro, the younger Solvalvarro's father, is worried about the safety of his son while he's with his mother and stepfather.
