MIAMI (AP) - The FBI has joined the search for a newborn baby who disappeared after his mother, grandmother and great-grandmother were fatally shot in South Florida.

The Miami Herald reports the FBI confirmed Monday that the agency is assisting in the case.

Miami-Dade police say Andrew Caballeiro was a week old when his father, 49-year-old Ernesto Caballeiro, kidnapped him last month.

A short time later, police found the bodies of 40-year-old Arlety García Valdés, 60-year-old Isabel Valdés González and 84-year-old Lina González Licor. Police suspect Caballeiro murdered the women.

The day after taking the child, he was found dead from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound north of Tampa.
