    A 16-year-old girl and her 5-month-old baby have been missing for two weeks, and Fairfax County police believe the two may be in danger. 

    Lizzy Rivera Colindres and her son, Aidan David Castillo Rivera, were last seen at their home on Rhoden Court in Springfield on Jan. 14. 

    Police initially believed Rivera Colindres left voluntarily with her son's father, 18-year-old Jose Ivan Castillo Rivas, but new information suggests she may have left out of fear of him.

    "We're learning that their may have been some issues of contention between the two. We believe he has some gang ties," Fairfax County Police Department spokeswoman Tawny Wright said. "I don't know whether that plays into her particular risk for safety, but it obviously isn't a good situation."
