    According to KOB-TV, Renezmae Calzada had been in her family's front yard before she disappeared sometime after 9:30 a.m., investigators said. A woman, likely the girl's mother, called police nearly 10 hours later to report her missing, authorities told the news station.

    In an Amber Alert issued Sunday night, the Rio Arriba County Sheriff's Office described Renezmae as a 4-foot-tall Hispanic girl who has brown eyes and black hair. The child, who weighs about 35 pounds, was wearing a Disney "Frozen" shirt and blue shorts before she disappeared, authorities said.

    Deputies initially detained the mother's boyfriend, Malcolm Torres, on unrelated warrants but said Tuesday that he isn't considered to be a suspect in the case, Albuquerque Journal reported. Authorities have not charged anyone in connection with the girl's disappearance, according to KOB.

    Officials told KOAT that Renezmae's family members have been cooperating with authorities.
