Story:

Police in San Francisco are searching for the murderer of Evelyn Hernandez and information about the disappearance of her five-year-old son, Alex.

On May 1, 2002, Evelyn, who was nine months pregnant, took a bus to her bank to make a deposit, then bought a new wallet. She spoke with her sister at 9:00 that evening. It was the last time anyone would talk with her. Alex has not been seen since that day as well.

Evelyn was reported missing six days later by her ex-boyfriend, Herman Aguilera. Aguilera was the father of Evelyn's unborn child. The two reportedly had argued in the past about support for the baby and their relationship. Aguilera was married and refused to leave his present wife. Police have questioned Aguilera, and while they have not cleared him, they do not call him a suspect in her murder.

A week after her disappearance, Evelyn's wallet was found in South San Francisco. Then, on June 24, her badly decomposed body was found near the Bay Bridge. Despite an exhaustive search, police found no trace of Evelyn's unborn baby. There has also been no sign of Alex.
