On 9/5/18 The Naugatuck PD received a report from the Naugatuck school
system that they could not locate students previously enrolled in the
Naugatuck School System last school year.
At approximately 9:30 AM administrators from the Naugatuck school
system went to a residence listed as the students home and discovered
the residence had been vacated. The parents and students were identified
as Father Andres Bravo (DOB2/4/75) and Mother Jennifer Cubillos (DOB
2/8/85), Child 1 Samantha Bravo (DOB 11/20/06) and Child 2 Christopher
Bravo (DOB 4/7/04).
The school system advised that the students
were last seen at the end of the 2017-18 school year in June and were
last known to reside at the vacated address in Naugatuck with both
parents. School administrators advised that all phone contacts for the
parents are either no longer in service or no longer belong to the
Naugatuck Officers and Detectives began an investigation
and determined that the home had been sold and vacated in late June /
early July and that the parents told family members at that time that
they were planning to move to Florida. It was further discovered that
the last time anyone had physical contact with parents was in late June /
early July at a local bank. Family members further advised that they
had received text messages from the parents until about August 11th and
that the last messages they received indicated that they needed money
for car insurance and were planning to return to Connecticut.
All DMV information for the parents is listed to the vacated Naugatuck
address as well as a car registered to the parents, a gray 2007 Dodge
Nitro SUV displaying CT Registration # AL-51810.
Based on the
limited information on the whereabouts of the family all were listed as
missing through the National Crime Information Center (NCIC system) and
the juveniles were listed as Silver Alerts. Naugatuck Detectives are
actively investigating this incident. Based on information obtained in
this investigation thus far there is no indication of criminal activity
however the safety of all individuals involved needs to be verified.
If anyone has information on the whereabouts of these individuals they
are urged to contact the Naugatuck PD at 203-729-5221 or the NPD
Confidential Tip Line at 203-720-1010.
