The Winona Police Department in Minnesota is asking area residents for assistance in connection with missing mother, Madeline Kingsbury.
“We’re asking property owners in these counties to report old wells from before 1925, old homesteads and old windmills or windmill bases,” the Winona Police Department said last week in a release.
“We are also asking people to report sinkholes that are accessible by car. This information is not included in available records and could lead to new searches.”
As CrimeOnline previously reported, the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension said 26-year-old Kingsbury was last seen on the morning of March 31 in Winona. Family and friends told police that she hasn’t contacted them since and they’re concerned for her safety.
Police 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.
Investigators believe Kingsbury returned to her home around 8:15 a.m. after bringing the kids to daycare. Kingsbury’s ex (the children’s father), Adam Fravel, reportedly told police that he left Kingsbury’s home at around 10 a.m. the morning in question and when he came back later that day, she was gone.
Fravel and Kingsbury lived together but they were no longer in a relationship, and Kingsbury was looking to move into a home when she went missing.
Fravel has denied any responsibility for her disappearance.
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.
