The incident happened at about 10 p.m. on Thursday when the father was involved in a domestic dispute at the Taco Bell in Gallup, which is located at 914 E. Highway 66. The father took Tyron and left the area on foot in an unknown direction.

The father has been identified as Tyron Denetclaw-Benally, Sr., who is described as a 28-year-old Native American with short black hair and brown eyes, standing 5 feet 10 inches tall and weighing 260 pounds. He was last seen wearing a black windbreaker, no shirt, and blue sweat pants. He was also carrying a black backpack and possibly wearing a blue beanie cap and "Lok" sunglasses.

The victim is described as an 8-month-old Native American male with black hair and brown eyes, standing 23 inches tall and weighing about 20 pounds. He was last seen wearing a long-sleeved black shirt with a white tank top and a black "Bat Man" shirt, wrapped in a red "Kansas City Chiefs" blanket. He had Christmas-style diapers on.

The father left the area with the child while "extremely intoxicated," according to investigators. "The child is feared to be out in the elements with the father .. Tyron Denetclaw-Benally, Jr. is believed to be in DANGER if not located immediately," New Mexico State Police said.

Although the father was on foot when he took the child, he may have access to a white Dodge pickup with New Mexico license plate LLC834.
