The father came home in Wichita Thursday to find Sofia Victoria Gonzalez Abarca had disappeared and her 27-year-old mother was dead, police Lt. Todd Ojile said during a news conference.
Sophia's father is not a suspect in Abarca-Nogueda's death, Woodrow said.
"I just feel terrible for them because she's only six days old", one neighbor said. They have now identified the mother, Laura Abarca-Nogueda.
Police are interviewing friends and family but so far, there are no leads and no suspects.
The FBI has joined the search for the infant. Police are searching for a purple Cadillac with Kansas tag number 716-GET, but there has been no indication that Sofia is in that vehicle and its driver is not considered a suspect at this time. The FBI is working tirelessly to find answers and bring the newborn girl home.
"We've contacted everybody around here", said Wichita Police Department's Sgt. Nikki Woodrow, according to KNSW.
"An AMBER Alert has to have suspects, and that is what we don't have", Woodrow said.

"There has been no Amber Alert issued, nor do I think there will be".
Another neighbor said before he knew the age of the missing baby, he thought it might've been his own daughter, gone missing.
Police want to talk to anyone with a relationship to the victim. "We are awaiting confirmation on pertinent details to determine whether an alert can be issued in this instance".
Woodrow also addressed why an Amber Alert has not been issued for Sofia's disappearance.
He immediately called 911 and informed officers that their 6-day-old daughter was also missing from the residence.
