UPDATE: An Amber Alert has been discontinued after a father fatally stabbed his daughter and then himself, news outlets reported.

As first published by ABC 13, an Amber Alert was issued this Tuesday for Leylani Ordonez, 1, and her father Alexander Barrios Ordonez, 24, who was wanted in connection with her disappearance.

Robinson police said the man had gone into a business, stabbed a man and then took off with his tow truck around 6 p.m.

Afterward, police said the man went to the babysitter's home, forced his way inside and then took off with his daughter in said stolen truck.

Following this, authorities said they placed an Amber Alert.

Sometime around 2 a.m. this morning, additional law enforcement agencies found the stolen truck, resulting in a long chase.

Police said the Fort Bend County Sheriff's Office, alongside Texas DPS and Sugar Land police, had found the truck.

Police said the pursuit ended after authorities threw out spike strips.

As published by ABC 13, the man then got out of the truck with the baby covered in blood, in his arms.

Some time afterward, police said the man stabbed himself once the vehicle had parked, according to ABC 13.

Officials said both were then taken to the hospital, where they later died.

As published by ABC 13, officials said that the man had stabbed the baby.

However, officials have not determined the exact moment that the child had been injured as she was already covered in blood upon their arrival.

At this time, authorities believe that the man may have worked for the man he stabbed prior to this incident.

Regarding the child's mother, officials said that she is currently in talks with detectives following the incident.

An investigation into this incident remains active and ongoing.

ORIGINAL STORY: Texas DPS has issued an AMBER Alert for a 1-year-old child who was abducted in Rosenberg.

Authorities said Leylani Ordonez was last seen wearing a red Whataburger onesie before 24-year-old Alexander Ordonez "absconded with the child."

The two are possibly in a green 2004 Ford F450 with Texas license plate T2160J and a "Riverside Towing" Logo.

Anyone with information is asked to call 911.
