TETON COUNTY, Idaho (KIFI) - An Amber Alert was issued early Friday morning to find a 10-month-old baby whose mother was found dead. The baby may be with his father, Jeremy Albert Best.
The Teton County Sheriff's Office reported at approximately 11:40 p.m. Thursday, they received a 911 call from a home on 4600 Skyline Loop in Victor. When deputies arrived at the home they found Kali Jean Randall, 38, dead.
The sheriff's office says Best may be driving a black 1995 Chevrolet Tahoe with Idaho plates 1T39349. He may have his son, Zeke Gregory Best, with him.
Bonneville County Sheriff's Office said they encountered Best earlier Thursday when they were called to the Swan Valley General Store in Swan Valley.
