Heidi Broussard: Mom & baby still missing after mysteriously vanishing from their home in broad daylight

A Texas father is pleading for information on the whereabouts of his infant daughter and her mother. Both mom and baby mysteriously disappeared Thursday morning.

As CrimeOnline previously reported, Heidi Broussard was last seen dropping her son off at Cowan Elementary School in Austin on Thursday morning at around 7:50 a.m. Friends said she dropped her son off at a book fair at the school.

KXAN reports that authorities said Broussard and her 2-week-old daughter, Margot, likely returned home afterward, at the Club at Summer Valley apartments off of West William Cannon Drive and South First Street, but at some point, disappeared. The apartment complex is around three miles away from the elementary school.

At around 6 p.m., the elementary school contacted the boy’s father, Shane Carey, and said no one picked the child up. Carey, who is also the father of Margot, subsequently contacted 911.

Carey told CBS Austin he last spoke to Heidi at 8 a.m. on Thursday. He arrived home from work at around 2 p.m. on Thursday and didn’t see Heidi or baby Margot. Heidi’s car and purse were left behind. Casey also said the baby’s belonging were left behind. There were reportedly no signs of struggle in the home.

According to an interview with FOX 7, Carey said Heidi’s phone is unaccounted for. He said when he tried to call her, it went straight to voicemail.

The outlet spoke with Casey while he was at a T-Mobile store, trying to access Heidi’s cellphone records. He said he was trying anything he could think of to find her.

Security footage from the elementary school confirmed that Heidi was at the school Thursday morning, but since then, no one has heard from her, including her mother, who traveled from Louisiana on Thursday to help look for her.

“If you see an awesome mom with a baby walking around or in a suspicious van or car or anything, please just somebody call,” Carey said.

According to NBC 9, Heidi’s friends said her apartment door was found wide open when Carey arrived home. CrimeOnline reached out to the Austin Police Department, but they have not confirmed the details.

Heidi is described as a white female who stands 5-foot-3-inches tall and weighs around 150 pounds. She has long, dark hair with highlights.

Anyone with information should contact the Austin Police Department immediately.
