ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - Dozens of concerned parents, children and staff from an Albuquerque day care being investigated over allegations of child mistreatment have called on state officials for answers in the case.

KOAT-TV reports (https://bit.ly/1ME6sVb ) the group held a protest at the state Children, Youth and Families Department office Monday. A CYFD employee told protesters that details of the open investigation cannot yet be released.

Eastern Child Development Center was shut down Friday after reports surfaced of a video appearing to show an employee mistreating a child. The employee was fired, but CYFD Secretary Monique Jacobson says there are more videos of the same woman that are being investigated.

While an investigation is ongoing, state officials are working to find alternate day care options for about 300 kids.
