ALBUQUERQUE -- The family of a man accused of shooting four women—killing one of them—is pleading with him to return home.

Albuquerque police released a new picture of the man they say is on the run. Marcos Delgado is accused in Friday's shooting. Police say he killed one of them, the mother of his young son.

On Sunday night, Delgado is still on the run. His family says they want him alive, even if that means years of jail time.

"I just wish my dad would have never done that," said Latisha Montoya, Delgado's 24-year-old daughter. Montoya says she doesn't know where Delgado is, only that he's on the run and she wants him to come home.

"I mean, I would never expect it from him," she said "It's just not him at all."

Montoya says Anna Vigil was her dad's girlfriend. It was seeing Anna with another man that probably set him off.

"Would you be mad if you saw your girlfriend with another man and they're not supposed to be there?" said Montoya. "I guess he finally had enough and everything is getting to him. We have our own other family issues, so I think everything built up and when he saw them together, he just snapped."

Montoya says what she wants now is to know where her dad is. His 4-year-old son with Vigil is now in CYFD custody, but Montoya wants custody of him. She says if her dad comes back, it might help her get custody.

Delgado's ex-wife of fifteen years, Valerie Montoya, says she thinks Delgado should turn himself in to police.

"Hopefully (he is) watching," she said. "I hope he's watching so he can see that we all love him."

During their divorce, Valerie Montoya said she filed a restraining order and had a domestic violence case opened against Delgado, but she says it was because of emotions during the divorce and she wouldn't give any other details.

Both women say they have no idea where Delgado could be Sunday.
