ALBUQUERQUE, New Mexico - Officials here plan to work with tribal and Native leaders following the disappearance of a plaque commemorating the burials of Indian boarding school students.

The plaque recognized the loss of Apache, Navajo and Zuni students who attended the Albuquerque Indian School. It had been been placed at a park not far from the site of the former institution but it is no longer there, for reasons unknown.

"Our department has been made aware of a missing plaque at 4-H Park, which denoted the area as a final resting site for students from the Albuquerque Indian School," Dave Simon, the director of Parks and Recreation in New Mexico's most populous city told Indianz.Com in a statement on Wednesday.
