SAN ANTONIO (AP) — The car belonging to an Arizona mother who allegedly told her ex-boyfriend she’d killed their baby has been found in Texas, but an FBI spokesman says the baby remains missing.

Eight-month-old Gabriel Johnson was last seen in San Antonio in December with his 23-year-old mother.

Elizabeth Johnson of Tempe, Ariz., was arrested last week in Florida on suspicion of custodial interference after she didn’t show up for a custodial hearing in Phoenix. Authorities say she refuses to say where her son is.

The boy’s father says Johnson sent him a text message saying she’d killed their son.

Johnson’s car was found at a San Antonio motel Tuesday evening. FBI spokesman Eric Vasys says a baby seat and other items were inside and there were no obvious signs of violence.
