Police in Nebraska are desperately searching for a missing 5-year-old boy.

An Amber Alert has been issued for Josue Ramirez-Marinero. He was last seen at his daycare on Wednesday.

Investigators first realized he was missing after his 11-month-old brother Angel was discovered in a dumpster.

The toddler was rescued when a man stopped to clean out his car, and heard noises coming from the trash bin.

He doesn't want to be identified, but stopped to describe what he saw.

"I went and looked at the open side of the dumpster and I seen a little hand with an empty water bottle moving," the man said.

Angel was bruised, but otherwise ok.

Police immediately began searching for his family, and found his mother's body hours later. But they've been unable to locate her other son.

Investigators think the suspect and Josue may be travelling in a silver Jeep Cherokee.

No suspects have been identified.
