An Amber Alert has been issued for an 11-month-old Houston baby after his mother was found dead in her refrigerator. Police are searching for the little boy's father, Patrick Lambert, 38. Both have been missing for at least a week and "the child is believed to be in danger," according to the alert.

The dead woman, who has not been publicly identified, was found by apartment-complex maintenance workers on Monday after neighbors complained of an odor, Houston police spokeswoman Jodi Silva said.

"I'm going to be honest, I didn't even think anybody lived there because I didn't see no activity or anything come in and out that house," Nicole Barnes, a neighbor who complained of the smell, told NBC station KPRC. "I just told the maintenance, the people in the office that something just smells dead. I really felt bad that nobody came and checked on her. I'm just praying that the baby is found safe."

Police do not even have a photo of the child, and no information on Lambert's vehicle was released. Anyone with information is asked to call 713-308-3600.
