afternoon. he got mad and took the baby and told her he is leaving the state. police were finally notified about this just after 10:30 p.m.. he was last seen in a 2004 gmc envoy. the vehicle has a large american eagle on the rear window which should make it easier to spot. amber alert signs have been activated across the bay area and state. we knocked on the door where this couple lives and the woman we believe is the mother answered the door but did not want to talk this morning. we are going to continue to follow this story and keep you updated on the morning news. claudine wong ktvu channel 2 news. we are following developing news of a fire in san francisco's richmond district this morning. ktvu channel 2 reporter tara moriarty is joining us now. tara. >> reporter: we are learning more details here.

5:31 am
but mix of sun and clouds. easterly breeze. high clouds. 70s for some. upper 60s for others. here is sal. steve, we are looking at what could be a problem in san francisco. although since i last spoke to you it looks like the crash is on the shoulder northbound 101 coming up from the candle stick area right into san francisco. its closer to caesar chavez so right here. but its on the shoulder. you know there is not much of a shoulder there. if its there for much longer, it could create a problem. for right now we will give the benefit of the doubt and say traffic is okay. however there is a new crash northbound 280 reported at caesar chavez here. this one here as you drive toward king street. so we will keep an eye on both of those problems. not actually great for san francisco but its early enough that we could dodge the big traffic that we might get there. let's move along and take a look at the actual san francisco freeway here from the
