Police are looking for an Albuquerque family that disappeared two weeks ago after the father told relatives his baby daughter had died.

Albuquerque police spokesman Simon Drobik said David “D.J.” Zuber told his mother that on Dec. 18 his 1-year-old daughter, Anastazia Zuber, had drowned in the bathtub.

“Police were not called and cannot confirm if the child is alive or safe,” he said.

Drobik said Anastazia is supposed to be with Zuber and her mother, Monique Romero.

He said the two were last seen in Farmington with their other two children, Athena Zuber and David Zuber III. APD did not release any identifying pictures of the other two children or details about them.

“Police have talked to numerous family members, but no one can confirm the whereabouts of the child,” Drobik said.

Romero is 23 years old, around 5 feet tall, 110 pounds with brown hair and brown eyes.

David Zuber is 26 years old, 5 feet 7 inches, 140 pounds with blondish-brown hair and blue eyes.
