Missing for a Week, Mother Says She "Just Needed to Get Away"

 Posted on December 00, 0000 in Divorce

A Volo, IL mother and her two young children went missing. Aneta Marsek, 33, and her daughters, 2 year old Chevelle and 4 month old Macenzie, left her parents’ home around 7 p.m.on a Saturday night and disappeared. Her estranged husband Dan Marsek reported them missing. Police led an intense search for the family using helicopters and a small plane. Friends and family also helped out where they could, such as handing out flyers. There was even a candlelight vigil held for the mother and her two babies.

A week later, Marsek walked into a Wisconsin Dells gas station and told the attendant she thought police might be looking for her. A short time later, she took police to her vehicle where the two children were found safe. She told police that she had felt the need to get away and the Dells reminded her of when she was a child. She also said that she and the children had been living in the car since arriving in the area, a Chevy Trailblazer.

But Dan Marsek filed paperwork with the court after his estranged wife was found, alleging that the disappearance with the children was just another attempt to keep them from him and to avoid a hearing which was to set a visitation schedule. According to a report from NBC Chicago, Dan Marsek told the court that Aneta Marsek has disappeared three other times this year; in January, March and May.

Currently, both children are with their father and Aneta Marsek is in a Wisconsin mental health facility. The The Lake County Sheriff&s Office is investigating and said more information will be forthcoming.

Custody disputes between divorcing parents can become acrimonious. Sometimes to the extreme where one of the parties would put the children in danger rather than comply with visitation schedules. If you are involved in a custody battle, you need the help of an experienced Arlington Heights divorce attorney to help protect you and your children.
