UPDATE: Abducted baby recovered in Livermore, father still at large

A baby whose father allegedly abducted her from a Mountain View hotel on Tuesday was recovered in Livermore on Wednesday morning but her father remains at large, police said.

Patterson resident Michael Wallin, 45, was visiting his 4-month-old daughter Madilyn Wallin and her mother around 8:30 p.m. Tuesday at the Residence Inn at 1854 W. El Camino Real, located in Mountain View’s Shoreline West neighborhood.

Wallin took off with Madilyn in his lap in his blue, four-door 2007 Nissan Altima with paper license plates and collision damage on the front and back, police said.

Madilyn’s mother was briefly dragged by the car but was able to break free without serious injury. Her adult son followed Wallin, who “brake-checked” him, causing a collision, before driving off with Madilyn still in his lap.

Wallin did not have a car seat in the Altima, police said.

CHP issued an Amber Alert for Madilyn around 10:30 a.m. for Alameda, San Joaquin, Santa Clara and Stanislaus counties.

The suspect is described as a white man with brown hair and eyes and tattoos all over his torso, arms and the tops of his hands. He stands 6 feet 2 inches tall and weighs 220 pounds, according to the CHP.

Wallin was last seen wearing a white Golden State Warriors T-shirt.

Anyone with information about Wallin’s whereabouts has been asked to call Mountain View police at (650) 903-6395.
