Mom who disappeared after dropping kids off spotted in another state walking a dog: Police

A Wisconsin woman who mysteriously vanished after she dropped off her kids was seen walking her dog in another state, but she has yet to be found, MLive reports.

Holly Ringen, 43, of Monona, Wisconsin, brought her children to their dad’s home last Tuesday morning around 8:30 a.m. Ringen, 43, said she was going to go to a dog park, but she never came back and her phone has been turned off. She also has been missing from work.

Law enforcement officials said Thursday they received a credible tip that Ringen was spotted on Wednesday walking her dog in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula. The precise Michigan town where the sighting occurred was not disclosed, but MLive reports it is more than 300 miles from whether both Ringen and her ex-husband live.

It is not publicly known why the woman left Wisconsin. Police say Ringen appeared to be in good health, but they are still searching for her and trying to contact her, and her family is concerned.

“Being that we don’t know her intentions, it is requested that people continue to look for her,” police wrote in a news release.

Ringen is approximately 5-foot-8 and 140 pounds and was reportedly driving a grey Ford C-Max hatchback with Wisconsin license plate 812KZE. Her dog, named Jynx, is a brown and white beagle terrier mix.
