Amber Alert issued for abducted infant, mother out of Guerneville

The California Highway Patrol has issued an Amber Alert for a woman who is suspected of taking her 7-month-old son from his grandmother’s Guerneville residence Sunday morning.

The Sonoma County Sheriff’s Office issued a “be on the lookout” Sunday for 35-year-old Hannah Ruth Ashley, and the CHP issued the Amber Alert around 2 p.m. Monday on behalf of the sheriff’s office.

Ashley was last seen driving a silver Subaru Forester with California license plate No. 5JKZ255, sheriff’s Sgt. Spencer Crum said.

Sheriff’s officials said this morning that the boy is not believed to be in danger and there has never been a threat of violence toward the infant.

The CHP identified the boy as Henry Massey, a white male who is 26 inches tall and 15 pounds with brown hair and gray eyes. Ashley is 5 feet 6 inches tall, weighs 125 pounds and has brown hair and brown eyes.

CHP Officer Juan Leon said the sheriff’s office likely requested an Amber Alert to broaden the search for Ashley and the infant after investigators exhausted their search efforts in the Guerneville and Sonoma County area.

A parent who abducts a child often goes to a relative or stays in the local area, Leon said.
