BROOKLYN - Police are looking for an 18-month-old girl last seen with a friend of her parents outside their Bushwick home.

Nathan Howard and Laquisha Henderson say they last saw their daughter Queen Minubia early Friday morning.

They say their friend, Vanessa Lozada, was outside with the infant and both vanished shortly after. Lozada had been living with the baby?s parents for a week.

Both parents are pleading for the safe return of their daughter.

They say police have since told them they believe Lozada had health and possibly mental problems. Howard and Henderson said they had given Lozada a place to stay as a favor.

Police are asking the public for help. They urge anyone with information to call the 83rd Precinct or Crimestoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS.
