Volusia County investigators said Luis Toledo, the person of interest for missing mother Yessenia Suarez, attempted to kill himself Saturday morning.

Toledo was at the Volusia County Sheriff's Office's Operations Center, 1330 Indian Lake Road, Daytona Beach, talking with investigators Saturday morning.

Deputies said Toledo was permitted to use the bathroom with a deputy guarding him.

Toledo forced the doorway shut, smashed the mirror and used the mirror shards to attempt suicide by cutting himself, deputies said.

Deputies were able to quickly access the room and secure Toledo, officials said.

Toledo's  injuries were determined to be non life-threatening and he was transported by EVAC ambulance to Halifax Health Medical Center in Daytona Beach for treatment for his cuts at about 11:30 a.m., Saturday, officials said.

Toledo is being considered a person of interest in the disappearance of Yessenia Suarez and their two children on Tuesday.
