Missing Naugatuck Family Found Safe

Naugatuck police have found a family that previously hadn't been heard from since Aug. 11.

Police said they were first notified the family might be missing when they received a report from the Naugatuck School system. School officials said they could not locate two children, identified as 11-year-old Samantha Bravo and 14-year-old Christopher Bravo, who were enrolled last year and were last seen in June.

Naugatuck police went by the family's last known address and found the home had been sold. The parents, 43-year-old Andres Bravo and 33-year-old Jennifer Cubillos, had told family members that they were moving to Florida. Family members said they last saw the parents in late June or early July, and had heard from them by text message until around Aug 11.

The latest text messages suggested the family needed money for car insurance and were trying to return to Connecticut.

Police said all four members of the family were found safe and unharmed on Monday. The family was listed as missing through the National Crime Information Center and authorities issued Silver Alerts for the children.

Officials have not released details about where the family was found and said there is no criminal aspect to the situation.
