Authorities are searching for a mother and her two children who went missing in Montville on Sunday, and say that they fear that they are in danger.
The Morris County Prosecutor’s Office says that 39-year-old Cheng Hsiao, 3-year-old Ethan and 2-year-old Ian were last seen at their family home at 95 Old Lane in the Towaco section of Montville on Saturday. Authorities say that it appears that they left the home sometime between 6:30 a.m. and 4 p.m.
The husband reported them missing on Sunday.
The case has now reached a federal level, according to Prosecutor Robert Carroll.
"We are very concerned about the two young children,” He says. “I want to mention also that they are not in any trouble. Neither the mom nor the two children. We want to try to get their location and find out if they're safe. That's our primary concern right now."
Cheng Hsiao has black hair and brown eyes, is 5 feet 2 inches tall and weighs approximately 121 pounds.
Anyone who may have information is asked to call the Montville Township Police Department Detective Bureau at 973-257-4300 or the Morris County Communications Center at 973-285-2900. Callers seeking to remain anonymous may contact Morris County Crime Stoppers at 1-800-743-7433.
