A 26-year-old mother of two from Minnesota identified as Madeline Kingsbury has been missing for almost a week in what local police are describing as ‘suspicious’ circumstances after her phone and wallet were found in her house.
Madeline Kingsbury, 26, was last seen on March 31 at around 10 a.m. at her house on Kerry Drive in Winona, close to the border between Minnesota and Wisconsin.
She and the father of her children – a 5-year-old girl and a 2-year-old boy – had just dropped them off at a day care before returning home.
At around 10, the father of the kids left their house in a dark blue 2014 Chrysler Town and Country minivan, he told authorities. By the time he came back later that day, Kingsbury was no longer there.
Her job said she didn’t show up and friends and family say she did not respond to a number of calls and messages.
She also didn’t pick up her children.
