SLATON, TX (KCBD) -

As a statewide search continues for missing two year old Leah Aguirre, her mother Tina was brought in to the Slaton Police Station for questioning about her daughter's disappearance.

Leah had recently been in the temporary custody of a family friend in Crosbyton when she went missing five days ago. On Tuesday an amber alert was issued after authorities say the couple reported a man posing as a CPS worker came to their door saying he needed to take Leah. The couple says the man who took Leah was a Hispanic man who went by the name Miguel and drove a red Ford Focus.

Around 5 p.m. officers located Leah's mother Tina, 22, at her home in Slaton and brought her in to be questioned by Slaton and Crosbyton Police as well as FBI agents.

Reports have surfaced that Tina was already under investigation by CPS and that she had possibly tried to sell Leah to a man in Mexico for $2,000.

"As far as we know they are just rumors, and we're hoping they stay that way," Leah's godmother Kimberlee Gonzalez said. "We have no idea who this man could be or how big of a danger he is to this baby."

For more than five hours Tina stayed at the Slaton Police Station being questioned. Crosbyton Chief of Police Gregg Parrott says they went through a long list of relatives and have other state agencies going to those communities to question them.

Leah's father has been out of Leah's life since she was born, but they located him in Oklahoma. FBI agents interviewed him and ruled him out.

When we spoke to Leah's godmother Kimberlee she said Tina was confused about her daughter going missing. Right now they're just praying she is brought home safe.

"I just want her home safe. I just want to know where she is right now and want this little girl back home. That's all I want," Kimberlee said.
