Four Members of Crestwood Family Missing
Illinois State Police issue "Endangered Missing Person Advisory"

Madison Owens, 11, (far left) and her 9-year-old twin sisters, Nicole (center) and Kristin Owens (bottom right), were last seen with their mother, Stephanie Owens (inset), on April 24.


In an "endangered missing person advisory," Illinois State Police said they're looking for four members of a southwest suburban Crestwood family.

Madison Owens, 11, and her 9-year-old twin sisters, Kristen and Nicole Owens, were last seen with their mother, Stephanie Owens, on Sunday at their Crestwood home. All four are missing.

The family has lived with Stephanie Owens' brother for about the last 18 months, he told authorities. He said he didn't think anything of not seeing his nieces on Monday because they had off of school and assumed they were with their mother.

He alerted authorities on Wednesday when the family still hadn't turned up, adding that his sister seemed depressed and distraught when he last saw her.

In their investigation, authorities started calling other family members. The grandmother of the girls reported receiving a text message from the young girls:

"Hi mom mom. We are not having Easter because God told mommy not to. Also, Happy Easter. But guess what if you don't do Easter you get to see God."

"I'm very scared for my grandchildren. [Stephanie Owens] is truly a wonderful person. She has a heart of gold, but I'm afraid of what she's going to do," the grandmother, Cheryl McKinney, tearfully told NBC Chicago via telephone. "I never in my wildest dreams imagined I'd see one of my children or my grandchildren on one of those [missing persons] flyers."

Investigators said they're also looking into email messages and Facebook messages that may have been traded between Stephanie Owens and a Facebook friend in California.

That is a terrifying message. I hope these children are found before the mother harms them.

That is an odd message. I hope they are found soon.

(CBS/WBBM) CRESTWOOD, Ill. - A missing Crestwood, Ill. mother and her three daughters who had not been seen since Easter Sunday have been found safe, police say.

Madison Owens, 11, and her twin sisters, Nicole and Kristin, both 9, and their mother, 42-year-old Stephanie Owens were found in their car at around 10 a.m. this morning in Macomb, about 240 miles southwest of Chicago, according to local news reports.

Authorities said Owens claimed their car had run out of gas and that they were able to return to it only after a good Samaritan gave them $100 and filled up a gas canister, according to the Chicago Tribune.

The mother was reportedly taken to a hospital for a psychiatric evaluation and the children are in protective custody, according to the Tribune.

And she stated she didn't know where they'd been. Thank God they were found before she did something horrible, sure sounds as if it was heading in that direction. I hope she gets the treatment she needs, she's had some kind of mental breakdown.
