Authorities uncover possible crime scene while in search of missing mom of two

Illinois authorities found a possible crime scene on Sat. in connection with an Alton woman who disappeared under concerning circumstances last week.

FOX reports that Madison County Sheriff’s deputies found a prescription bottle on Sat. afternoon in Madison that belongs to Adria Hatten, 39, who disappeared last Sun. after leaving her friend’s home. She said she was going to church. Since then, she never returned to her home off of Alton Road and her family hasn’t heard from her. An article of clothing was also found at the scene, but later determined that it didn’t belong the Hatten.

The prescription bottle was discovered in the same area where an employee with the Department of Natural Resources found Hatten’s car last week. According to the St. Louis Dispatch, the employee found Hatten’s vehicle, a 2013 white Ford Focus, in a muddy field in Madison, off of Big Bend Road.

Hatten stands  5 feet 5 inches tall with a medium build. She has blue eyes, blonde hair, and was last seen wearing blue jeans, high heeled calf-high brown boots, and an aqua-colored shirt. She has a cross tattoo on her left forearm.

“She’s not one to disappear from her family like this,” Hatten’s cousin, Rashelle Laraby, said, according to RiverBender. “It’s been six days now. It’s not like her.

Anyone with any information regarding Hatten’s disappearance should contact the Madison County Sheriffs Office at at 618-692-4433 or the anonymous tip line at 618-296-3000.
