Woman declared missing with her four children pulls up at her house while news team was reporting live from the spot on her case
A 30-year-old pregnant mother of four who had been declared missing along with all her children in Aurora, Illinois, by authorities on Thursday has been located.
According to reports, Asuncion Neal along with her children -- 1-year-old Athena Beltran, 3-year-old Evangelina Beltran, 11-year-old Maximus Arroyo and 7-year-old Victor Beltran -- pulled up in front of her house on Friday morning even as a news team was reporting live on her case at the spot.
Aurora police had issued a Child Abduction Alert overnight for Neal and her four children after they had gone missing from their home at 1000 block of Prairie Street on April 25. It was earlier reported that they were last seen in Plano around 7:30 pm Thursday. Neal is believed to be around 6-7 months pregnant and police said she "has a condition that places her in danger."
According to reports, Neal was seen driving a white 1995 Chevrolet conversion van with a license plate that read 2386176, the police revealed.
When she pulled up in front of her house with her children and family dog, WGN reporter Nancy Loo called up 911 and Aurora police responded to the scene.
WGN reported that Neal said she had no idea about the police alert and termed the incident a “huge misunderstanding.”
She revealed that she left "with her children because she did not feel safe in the home" and spent the night at a family business.
However, the license plate listed in the Aurora police alert did not match with the van in which Neal returned home. According to the latest update, authorities were questioning the woman, and EMS was also dispatched to the scene as a precaution.
