Detective Lee Cowart said a family member discovered the bodies while checking on them after multiple attempts to contact them failed.

A newborn boy, believed to be 7 days old is missing, as is his 49-year-old father, whom police identified as Ernesto Caballeiro.

Detectives are investigating a triple homicide on Tuesday afternoon in southwest Miami-Dade County’s Redland community.

The Florida Department of Law Enforcement issued an Amber Alert for the baby, Andrew Caballeiro, who may be in the company of his father.

“Ernesto Caballero, he’s related to the one or all three of the victims,” Cowart said.

Miami-Dade County property records show Caballeiro has owned the four-bedroom home at 21981 SW 187th Ave. since 2005.

Police believe Caballeiro and the baby may be traveling in a white Ford passenger van with Florida tag KUSK23.

“We’re asking the assistance of the community to locate him and his newborn infant child,” Cowart said.

Anyone with information about Caballeiro’s whereabouts is asked to call 911 immediately and not approach him.
