ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — Police are asking for the public’s help to locate a group of five siblings: Selma Craig-Bell, 10 months; Trinity Bell-Craig, 3 years; Tanylah Craig-Bell, 4 years; Ataliah Bell, 6 years; and Tennaayah Bell, 11 years.
The children were last seen at their father/step-father’s apartment at the Casa Bella Apartments in southeast Albuquerque on Sept. 12.
In an update from police Monday morning, APD spokesperson Gilbert Gallegos said the oldest child presumably took the siblings from home to be with a relative in the area. Police said this is due to known conversations between the 11-year-old and local family.
The siblings left with clothing and minimal supplies and are suspected to be together. Detectives are working to confirm that the children are with family, and ensure the children are safe. Police said the siblings are caught in the middle of a custodial dispute.
Anyone with information about the children’s whereabouts are asked to contact police at 242-COPS.
