BRIDGEPORT, Conn. -- Police are searching for a 6-year-old girl they believe was taken by her father after he fatally stabbed someone in Connecticut early Friday morning. New York State Police shared the Amber Alert Friday morning, which includes two Capital Region counties.

Aylin Sofia Hernandez could be in the Bronx with her father, a suspect wanted for a double stabbing in which one person was killed and another critically wounded, Bridgeport police said.

Residents of Safirbet Columbia and Greene County are asked to look for a silver Hyundai Elantra with unknown New York registration plates. The rental sedan is being driven by the girl's father, 39-year-old Oscar Hernandez, who is the murder suspect, police said.

Hernandez is described as a 5-foot-3 Hispanic man with short, brown hair and brown eyes, weighing about 185 pounds.

Six-year-old Aylin is described a 4-foot Hispanic girl with black hair and brown eyes, weighing 55 pounds.

No clothing description was given for the father or daughter.

Bridgeport police Capt. Brian Fitzgerald said one person is dead after a stabbing on Greenwood Street around 2:45 a.m.

Asked if the girl is considered to be in danger with her father, Fitzgerald said, "we don't know his state of mind."

Hernandez fled the scene after fatally stabbing one person and critically wounding another. He is believed to have abducted Aylin at about 3:30 a.m., the New York State Police said.

Hernandez was last seen driving on Jennings Street in the Bronx and is believed to still be in the New York City area, State Police said at about 6:30 a.m.

If you see the vehicle, Hernandez or Aylin, or have any information about the abduction, call 911 immediately.
