SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — A baby girl, her parents and uncle were found dead in a central California orchard two days after they were kidnapped at gunpoint from their business, police said.

“Our worst fears have been confirmed,” Merced County Sheriff Vern Warnke said at a Wednesday night news conference.

Warnke did not release any information about how and when police believe they were killed. He said the victims were close to each other when found by a farm worker in a remote area.

The grim announcement came after authorities earlier Wednesday released surveillance video of a man kidnapping 8-month-old Aroohi Dheri; her mother Jasleen Kaur, 27; father Jasdeep Singh, 36; and uncle Amandeep Singh, 39, on Monday.

9. many kidnappings result in death

If you're about to be kidnapped, you have to fight for your life even if the attacker has a gun. Cause no one will find you alive if you wait.

13. Suspect arrested for murder, kidnapping of California family

(Reuters) - A suspect has been arrested on murder and kidnapping charges after four members of a California family, including an 8-month-old girl, were found dead in a rural area two days after their abduction, authorities said.

The Merced County Sheriff's Office said on Facebook on Thursday night that it had booked Jesus Manuel Salgado, 48, into jail on four counts of murder and kidnapping. The office said it will continue to follow up on any leads of additional people who may have been involved in the "horrific incident."

Salgado is accused of kidnapping Jasleen Kaur, 27, her baby girl Aroohi Dheri, the baby's father Jasdeep Singh, 36, and the baby's uncle, Amandeep Singh, 39. Police say the four were abducted at gunpoint on Monday morning from the family's trucking company in Merced, about 150 miles (240 km) east of San Jose.

Police were alerted to the crime after finding Amandeep Singh's black 2020 Dodge Ram pickup truck burning on the side of a county road. While investigating, sheriff's deputies were unable to reach the family and determined they had been abducted, leading them to the trucking business.
