Authorities in New Mexico are searching for a 1-year-old girl whose father allegedly told his mother that the child had drowned in a bathtub two weeks ago.
Per KRQE, Anastazia Zuber was last referred to on December 18, when her father, David Zuber, 26, informed his mother of his daughter’s death. At the time, the father and mother, Monique Romero, 23, reportedly had the 1-year-old along with their two other children in Farmington.
Despite the father’s alleged admission, police are uncertain whether the toddler is alive or endangered. The Albuquerque Journal reported that police are searching for the entire family.
“Police have talked to numerous family members, but no one can confirm the whereabouts of the child,” Albuquerque police spokesman Simon Drobik said.
The couple was last seen driving in an unknown vehicle in Farmington, according to KRQE.
David was described as being 5-feet-7 inches tall, 140 pounds, and having blond/brown hair and blue eyes. Romero is approximately 5-feet tall, 110 pounds, and has brown hair and brown eyes.
This is an ongoing investigation. Anyone with information regarding Anastazia Zuber, David Zuber or Monique Romero’s whereabouts can call the Albuquerque Police Department at 505-242-2677.
