A Paso Robles father and son are suspected of shooting and killing two men at a San Ardo residence on Saturday before kidnapping a 16-year-old who was at the home.

The owner of the home discovered the bodies of Hector Reyes, 33, and Daniel Fraga, 35, at about 10 p.m. and also that his daughter Eunice Serrato, 16, was missing from the house. Officials have issued an Amber Alert.

Monterey County Sheriff’s deputies are searching for Serrato’s boyfriend, Juan Manuel Salazar Jr., 19, and his father, Juan Manuel Salazar, 39, as persons of interest in the case. They suspect the men are attempting to take Serrato to Mexico.

Deputies describe Juan Manuel Salazar Jr. as being 5 feet 8 inches tall, weighing 150 pounds, with brown hair and brown eyes. He may have been shot during the altercation, officials said.

Juan Manuel Salazar Sr. is also described as 5 feet 8 inches tall, weighing 150 pounds, with brown hair and brown eyes.

The suspects were last seen driving a blue Chevrolet Tahoe with California license plate 6W54124.
