Update: Missing Clinical Research Coordinator Fails to Pick Up Children, Hasn’t Spoken to Family or Friends in Days

Minnesota police released additional information this week after issuing an endangered person alert Sunday for a missing mother who vanished from Winona County.

As CrimeOnline previously reported, the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension said 26-year-old Madeline Jane Kingsbury was last seen Friday morning in Winona. Family and friends told police that she hasn’t contacted them since and they’re concerned for her safety.

On Monday, the Winona Police Department said that Kingsbury failed to pick up her children from daycare, which, according to family, is “extremely out of character” for her, KTTC reports. She also failed to reply to numerous calls and messages from loved ones.

While investigating, police determined that a van matching Kingsbury’s vehicle was spotted traveling from Winona to the eastern part of Fillmore County on March 31 during the daytime. Police say Kingbury drives a 2014 dark blue Chrysler Town and Country.

“We are asking residents in this area to check their properties, including any video cameras, doorbell cameras, game cameras etc. for a dark colored Chrysler Town and Country van, signs of a disturbance, or any other suspicious activity,” Fillmore County Sheriff John DeDeorge said in a statement Monday.

“The timeframe in question would be from approximately 8am on 3/31 through 4pm on 4/1/23.”

LaCrosse Tribune reports that Kingsbury is a clinical research coordinator at Mayo Clinic in Rochester and the mother of two children. She’s described as standing 5 feet, 4 inches tall and weighing around 145 pounds. She has hazel eyes and brown hair.
