Amber Alert: Police Searching For 7-Month-Old Baby After Mother Murdered

Memphis, TN – Tennessee authorities have issued an Amber Alert for seven-month-old Braylen Clark whose mother police believe was murdered by the baby’s father on Sunday.

Memphis police said that a woman was dropped off at Regional One Health Medical Center on June 27 suffering from a gunshot wound to the head, WATN reported.

The woman was pronounced dead at the hospital, but her identity was unknown for some period of time.

When investigators finally identified the victim, they learned that the dead woman’s baby was missing, WATN reported.

The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation (TBI) issued an Amber Alert for seven-month-old Braylen just before midnight on Monday.

Police think the baby may have been taken by his biological father, 26-year-old Barry Medlock.

The baby was last seen at about 1:30 p.m. on Sunday in the 2000-block of Pendleton Street near Memphis International Airport, WATN reported.

Baby Braylen weights 18 lbs. and is 27 inches long.

He was last seen wearing a blue onesie, according to the Amber Alert.

Medlock is wanted for second-degree murder in connection with the baby’s mother’s death, WATN reported.

Police have not yet released the identity of the woman who was murdered.

Anyone with information about Medlock’s whereabouts – or who sees the baby – should call Memphis police or Shelby County Crime Stoppers at (901)528-CASH.
