SAN LEANDRO (BCN) -- Authorities have issued a statewide Amber Alert after a man in  Alameda County abducted a 22-month-old toddler from her mother at knifepoint  early this morning, according to the sheriff's office.

      The alert was issued shortly before 4 a.m. after 26-year-old Luis  Meza Valdiva reportedly took his daughter Yosseline Carolina Meza and her  mother from a residence at 15015 E. 14th St. in unincorporated San Leandro,  and told the mother at knifepoint she would never see the child again,  Alameda County sheriff's spokesman J.D. Nelson said.

      Valdiva is described as a Hispanic man with brown hair and brown  eyes, around 5 feet 8 inches tall and weighing about 160 pounds. He was last  seen driving a white 1992 four-door Toyota Camry in the city of Turlock in  Stanislaus County, Nelson said. The Camry's license plate number is 5GBD911.

      The suspect was last seen driving on state Highway 99 in central  California and may be headed toward Mexico, Nelson said.

      Anyone who sees the suspect vehicle or Valdiva is asked to call  911 to report any information.
