A Colorado toddler, who was the subject of an Amber Alert, died hours after he was found, police said Sunday.
Nain Dominguez, 2, was discovered at around 7:18 a.m. and was taken to a hospital in life-threatening condition, Fox 31 Denver reported.
El Paso County Sheriff’s Office said later he had died despite medical intervention.
It wasn’t clear whether foul play was suspected in the toddler’s death. Authorities were still trying to piece together the events leading up to the boy’s disappearance. Police didn’t reveal what the boy’s injuries were before he was taken to the hospital.
An Amber Alert was activated Saturday at around 5:40 p.m., according to KRDO-TV. The boy was seen playing with an older sibling in Colorado Springs before disappearing, Fox 31 Denver reported.
The El Paso County Sheriff’s Office initially said they were searching for a white van in connection to the boy’s disappearance, but called off the search after the boy was found.
