Yasemin Uyar’s body found in Tennessee
The body of a missing Rahway mother was found on Saturday, a day after authorities issued a widespread Amber alert for her abducted child.
The father of the 2-year-old boy was arrested Saturday morning in Tennessee after authorities found him and his son at a motel.
Authorities at the time continued to report the disappearance of 24-year-old Yasemin Uyar.
But Sunday morning, the mother of the young woman announced that the family had been informed Saturday evening that the remains of her daughter had been discovered in Tennessee.
The Union County District Attorney’s Office, which is one of the law enforcement agencies investigating, did not immediately provide an update on the case on Sunday morning.
Tyler Rios, 27, of Highland Park, is being held in Tennessee pending his extradition to New Jersey. He was already facing charges related to the kidnapping.
Uyar’s mother, Karen, urged people on social media to remember her daughter as more than a ‘righteous [domestic violence] victim.”
“She was a daughter, sister, mother, aunt and cousin. Her life will be celebrated as her greatest gift to this world, Sebastian will always need ALL of our love and support,” she said. , asking friends and the public to allow the family to grieve privately while awaiting more information.
Relatives began to suspect that something was wrong on Friday when the little boy failed to show up to daycare and his mother failed to show up for his shifts.
Police went to Uyar’s home in Rahway on Friday to check if the family was okay, but found no one there.
Uyar’s sister says ABC7NY that the two adults were no longer a couple and that Rios had a history of domestic violence and homelessness.
