HOUSTON (AP) — Authorities are searching for a man and his 11-month-old son after the child's mother was found dead in a refrigerator in a Houston apartment.

Workers at the apartment complex found the body Monday afternoon after noticing a strong odor coming from the home.

An Amber Alert issued for the man and child Monday night says the father is a person of interest in the woman's death and that the child may be in danger. Neither has been seen or heard from in a week.

Police don't know how long the body was in the refrigerator.

The apartment's power was turned off Nov. 20 because the utility bills weren't paid. Police say the woman had not been facing eviction.
