Miami-Dade police announced Wednesday that the reward leading to the safe return of Andrew Caballeiro is now up to $8,000.

Baby Andrew has been missing since Jan. 28, the same day three of his family members were found shot to death inside a home on Southwest 187th Avenue.

Police identified the victims as mother Arlety Garcia Valdes, 40, grandmother Isabela Valdes, 60, and great-grandmother Lina Gonzalez, 84.

The boy's father, Ernesto Caballeiro, 49, was found dead of a self-inflicted gunshot wound the next day in Pasco County. Caballeiro was the prime suspect in the triple shooting.

Investigators believe he abducted the newborn baby before driving to Pasco County.
