The family was kidnapped Monday at gunpoint from a business in Merced, authorities said.
Jesus Manuel Salgado, the person of interest, was taken into custody Tuesday afternoon and remains in the hospital in critical condition after he tried to kill himself.
Authorities say deputies were informed that one of the victim’s ATM cards was used at a bank in Atwater, a city about 9 miles north of Merced.
Detectives received information that identified Salgado as a person of interest and that he attempted to take his own life before police arrived, a statement from authorities said, without specifying where he was taken into custody.
The sheriff’s office said his own family contacted authorities reporting that Salgado had admitted to them he was involved with the kidnapping of the family.
The kidnapper took the baby, the child’s mother, father and uncle, said Merced County Sheriff Vern Warnke.
