LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - A 3-year-old Denver City boy is still missing after his mother was found dead last Thursday. Monday marks day three of the Amber Alert for Mitchell Romero since the boy's disappearance and investigators say he was last seen with his father.

Veronica Esquivel Romero, 29, was laid to rest Monday morning, but family members won't rest until her son Mitchell Romero is found. "We knew something was wrong. Something was wrong because she never left her kids behind," said sister Maria Esquievel.

A warrant has been issued for Veronica's husband, Mario Romero. He is charged with murder after the victim's sister Maria found his wife's body in their home.

Before her death, Veronica worked at the Family Dollar in town for about four months and coworkers say she was very close to her kids. "She brought in her youngest son all the time, when she could, and talked about him constantly," said co-worker Jessica Elms.

Elms says she got the chance to meet Veronica's husband. "The vibe that I got off from him, he wasn't what I wanted to be around. He just didn't put off a good vibe to me," said Elms.

Police belief the father abducted Mitchell and that he is in grave danger. There is also talk he could be headed to Mexico where he is from. The two were last seen in Denver City driving a maroon 2004 Yukon with TX plates 43W-FX6.

If you have any information on the location of Mario Romero or the missing Mitchell Romero, please contact the Denver City Police Department at (806)-592-3516.
