The body of a missing mother from New Jersey named Yasemin Uyar, 24, was found late Saturday night after an extensive search by police that included multiple states and after they called off the Amber Alert for her 2-year-old son Sebastian who was found safe in Monterey, Tennessee with his father who’s the suspect, according to CBS New York.

Yasemin was found by authorities in Tennessee after the child's father Tyler Rios told police where Yasemin’s body was located while he was in police custody, according to acting Union County Prosecutor Lyndsay V. Ruotolo and Rahway Police Director Jonathan Parhamthey who both confirmed the news on Sunday.

Karen states that police notified the family at 8:15pm on Saturday. According to the authorities "Rios has been charged with first-degree kidnapping in connection with the alleged abduction of 2 year old Sebastian and additional criminal charges are pending in connection with the death of Yasemin". Also as it turns out Rios himself reported Yasemin and their son missing on Friday and an Amber Alert was issued widespread that afternoon. 

A heartbroken mother mourns the loss of her daughter and states that she lost her child to domestic violence. Karen Uyar described her deceased daughter as "A Daughter, Sister, Mother, Aunt and Cousin" while trying to cope with the tragic news.

According to reports, the allegations of domestic abuse against Rios started October of 2019 when her mother Karen had started documenting about her daughter's domestic abuse in her relationship with Rios over social media when she was trying to contact the authorities in order to keep her daughter safe.
