Madeline Kingsbury

Nearly a week after she vanished, police are now describing a 26-year-old Minnesota mother’s disappearance as “involuntary” and “suspicious.” Since dropping her young children off at daycare last Friday, Madeline Kingsbury has not been seen or heard from.

Tom Williams, the chief of police in Winona, Minnesota, stated at a news conference on Wednesday that “we believe Maddy’s disappearance is involuntary, suspicious, and we are all concerned for her safety.”

On Friday, Williams reported that Kingsbury and her husband dropped off their kids at the daycare center around 8:00 a.m. He claimed that she was then supposed to report to work but failed to do so.

According to her sister Megan Kingsbury, Kingsbury is “a hardworking and dedicated mother” who works at Mayo Clinic and is also a graduate student at the University of Minnesota.

A 5-year-old girl and a 2-year-old boy were due to be picked up from daycare by their mother on Friday afternoon, but she failed to appear or make other arrangements, according to police. Numerous family members and friends called and left messages for Kingsbury, which according to the police was “extremely out of character for her.”

Kingsbury’s phone, wallet, and identification were discovered by investigators after they conducted a search of the house, according to the police.

Around 10:00 a.m., her husband said, he drove their van back home, and when he arrived, Kingsbury was gone, according to police. According to police, Kingsbury typically travels in a dark blue Chrysler Town and Country minivan. Williams asserted that they think they saw someone driving “a similar van” to Kingsbury’s van in the vicinity.

Police requested assistance from locals in Winona, Wilson Township, and Hillsdale Township by posting a map on their Facebook page, asking them to search their homes, cars, and trails.

Williams urged locals to “save any video” from March 31 and April 1 and to check any security, surveillance, or gaming cameras for any unusual activity or people.

At a news conference on Wednesday, her sister Megan pleaded with the public for assistance in locating Madeline because the kids need their mother. She claimed that her red-headed nephew has dimples and is a “chatterbox” who loves to “dance,” while her niece has inherited her mother’s “kindness and curiosity.”

There are no suspects or persons of interest, police said, but the investigation is ongoing.

The family is offering a $50,000 reward for further information about Kingsbury’s disappearance, WCCO reported.
