SAN PABLO, Calif. (AP) — Police in the San Francisco Bay area city of San Pablo are trying to locate the three young children of a man who was found shot to death in his backyard.
The Contra Costa Times says the children lived with their father. Their mother, 35-year-old Alicia Ortez, also hasn't been seen since the man was killed on Monday morning.
Authorities have not identified him or said if they consider Ortez a suspect.
The newspaper identified the missing children as 12-year-old Hugo Ortez, 6-year-old Merari Ortez and 2-year-old Jean Carlos Ortez.
