UPDATE: Authorities now say the vehicle was gray in color.

The El Reno Police Department issued an Amber Alert Thursday for an 8-year-old girl who has been missing since 11 p.m. Wednesday.

The girl is Mabel Lopez. She is believed to be with two adults identified as her parents, Mirial Lopez-Rodriguez, 33, and Arcenio De Jesus, 39. They were last seen in a 2005 Ford XPL with Oklahoma license plate 689 LHD. El Reno Police Department stated that at 11 p.m. Wednesday, an assault and battery with a deadly weapon occurred in El Reno. De Jesus was a suspect and fled the city. He is believed to be traveling to Mexico with his wife, Maria Lopez or Maria Ramierez, and the girl. The wife and child are believed to be in danger.

The three left El Reno after an attack that critically injured two people in El Reno late Wednesday night.

According to police, the stabbings happened just before 11 p.m. at a home in the 200 block of Elm Street in El Reno. Two male victims were stabbed and transported by a helicopter to an Oklahoma City hospital. They are in critical condition.

One victim reportedly stumbled across the street, into a grocery store to seek help. He said he had been stabbed in the face and hand, and that there was another victim who had been stabbed at the home.

Police believe the weapon used in the attack was a machete.

De Jesus does not have a valid Oklahoma driver license and the vehicle is not registered to him, the police said. He was arrested in 2015 on a complaint of driving under the influence and driving without a valid operator’s license. If you have information about this incident, call 911 or call the El Reno police at (405) 262-2121.
