SAN DIEGO, Calif. (KYMA, KECY)- Chula Vista police are searching for a man suspected of killing his wife Sunday.

The San Diego Tribune said police are looking for 37-year-old Franciso Uriarte after his three children told police his father had killed their mother, 35-year-old Natalia Uriarte.

Police are still searching for Francisco Uriarte who they believe is still on the run in San Diego.

Police said they responded to a domestic dispute at Villa Granada Apartments on Oxford Street about 1:40 a.m. Sunday.

By the time they arrived at the apartment, Francisco was gone.

A cousin of Francisco Uriarte said Monday afternoon that she had not heard from him. She described him as a hard-working man dedicated to his family.

There is a GoFundMe page for the victim, Natalia Uriarte.

According to the GoFund page, the suspect may be in Mexicali or Tijuana.

Francisco Uriarte is 5 feet, 9 inches tall, 190 pounds, with brown hair and brown eyes. He was last seen wearing a large black overcoat, shorts and flip flops.
