AUSTIN (KEYE/CNN) — Shane Carey is pleading for help finding his newborn daughter Margot and her mother Heidi Broussard.

"I love you. Just please come home. We miss you," he said.

This photo shows Broussard dropping off her son at school at around 7:30 Thursday morning.

According to Austin police, it was the last place she was seen.

"I went to work, and I talked to her at 8 o'clock, and that's the last time I talked to her," Carey said.

Shane says when he got back home from work on Thursday, his wife the and the baby were nowhere to be found.

He tells us when his son's school called asking for someone to pick up the boy, and he knew something wasn't right.

"I went and picked up my son, and she wasn't home again so that's whenever I called police," he said.

Shane says nothing in their apartment was out of place.

"Her car, everything's at the house. Everything. The baby stuff. Everything. Nothing's gone except her and the baby," he said.

CBS Austin reached out to several friends and family members Friday.

Broussard's coworkers at Cracker Barrel in Buda say she'd been off work since having her baby.

"If you see an awesome mom with a baby walking around or in a suspicious van or car or anything that looks suspicious, just please give somebody a call," they said.
