    (KMOV) -- Police are looking for a woman with a special needs child who went missing Friday.

    Alton Police said they are looking for 46-year-old Bonnie Woodward who was last seen Friday at 3 p.m. She was last seen by a coworker at Eunice Smith Nursing Home talking to a white man who is said to be about 40 years old.

    The coworker said she saw Woodward get in a car with the man, leaving her car behind. Police describe the car as a silver or grey Chevy Malibu.

    Police are concerned for Woodward because she has a special needs child at home who she checks in one about every two hours. There has been no activity on her cell phone since she disappeared.

    If you have any information, call the Alton Police Department.

    Mother of four still missing from Alton

    As of Monday night, police in Alton are still looking for 48-year-old Bonnie Woodward. She was last seen on Friday afternoon in a parking lot near her job with an unidentifed man.

    Woodward's family says nothing about her disappearance adds up. Her boyfriend says she would never get in a car with someone she doesn't know, and would not go this long without contacting someone.

    Family asks for help in search for woman

    Police continued to search Monday for an East Alton woman who went missing last week, days before her 48th birthday.

    [snip]

    During a news conference Monday, Golike said several witnesses reported seeing the man in the parking lot prior to Woodward's disappearance. He is described as being white, in his mid-40s, with brown hair with gray at the temples.

    [snip]

    Golike said Woodward's vehicle was found in the nursing home parking lot with its windows down. Since vanishing, he said, she has not used her cell phone, credit cards or any other electronic devices.

    [snip]

    Golike said police remain optimistic about finding Woodward; however, if she is not found by mid-week, authorities plan on bringing in a cadaver dog to search the park.

    Some family dynamics. Paraphrasing. Split up for ease of understanding and reading.

    http://www.thetelegraph.com/news/alt...oman-help.html

    Woodward lives with her boyfriend, Gary Wilmurth.

    She is the mother of four (2 adults, 2 teenagers, 1 is a special needs child).

    Woodward's oldest daughter and youngest son live with her.

    Her oldest son is stationed with the U.S. Army, and her youngest daughter recently moved out.

    The youngest daughter is also missing (not thought to be connected.) The 17-year-old left willingly several weeks ago and was last seen living at the home of a female teacher.

    Wilmurth said that although Woodward had been upset by her daughter's disappearance, he doesn't feel she would leave the area voluntarily.

    Family of missing Alton woman hopes for the best, fears the worst

    The family of a missing Alton woman is now in its fourth day of searching.

    Tuesday, volunteer search and rescue crews joined the effort, as the family hopes for the best while fearing the worst.

    [snip]

    Tuesday's search came up empty.

    Woodward's family says it hopes for the best, but can't help worry about the worst.

    "I'm hopeful, but I think we'll find something else," says Valdes. "I think it's foul play."

    "If somebody out there does have Bonnie I wish you'd please let her go," says her boyfriend of several years Gary Wilmurth. "Let her get to a phone and call me. I'll come and get her."

    Family searches for missing mother and daughter.

    According to the following article the female teacher the 17 year old daughter was staying with is not talking about the teenagers disappearance according to Woodwards oldest daughter Jennifer Nunez.


    http://www.fox2now.com/news/kplr-alt...0,853383.story

    Mom and daughter go missing within 3 weeks of each other?
    Teacher is allowing a 17 year old child to reside in her home?

    Something is very wrong here. It concerns me greatly a teacher would have a 17 year old student or former student residing in her home and now this childs mother is missing 3 weeks later.

    My immediate reaction was did mom get in the car with someone who was supposed to be helping her find her daughter? Could the daughter be somehow involved? What was the history that lead to the daughter moving out? Clearly her mother was very upset about this according to media.

    Why isn't there more media and better pictures? I can't find good pictures of either mom or daughter.

    Police also seek missing woman's daughter

    June 30, 2010 5:37 AM


    Police need help in finding a missing 17-year-old East Alton girl whose mother vanished last week in Alton after getting off work.
    Police are asking for the public's help in locating Heather Woodward of East Alton. The teen is the stepdaughter of Bonnie Woodward, who last was seen Friday in the parking lot at her place of employment near Upper Alton.
    As the Alton Police Department continued its search for Bonnie Woodward, East Alton police were working hard to find the daughter.
    "We need to find her and talk to her," Police Chief Dwynn Isringhausen said.
    Isringhausen said although he doesn't believe the two cases are related, he would feel better knowing the teenager's location.

    <snip>


    Isringhausen said that Bonnie Woodward reported Heather Woodward as a runaway to police on June 17. He said that Bonnie Woodward told police that her daughter had left home and was staying at the home of a female teacher.
    "She wanted her daughter to come home, and (Heather) didn't want to," Isringhausen said.
    He said that police questioned the teacher and even searched her home. He said the girl no longer is staying with the teacher, who told police she didn't know Heather's whereabouts.
    "She is doing everything she can to help us find Heather," Isringhausen said.

    The above article also indicates Bonnie adopted Heather about 10 years ago after her father died. No mention of the girls biological mom.

    I'm worried for the both of them. I have this sinking feeling perhaps the two cases may be related.

    Alton police still looking for woman missing since Friday

    http://www.globe-democrat.com/news/2...issing-friday/

    Wednesday, June 30, 2010

    The Alton Police Department is still actively investigating leads associated with the recent disappearance of Bonnie Woodward.

    Bonnie L. Woodward is a white female, 48-years-old, blond hair, green eyes, 5'7" and 240 lbs.

    Woodward was last seen on Friday, June 25, at approximately 3 p.m. wearing a yellow and white scrub top and yellow scrub pants.

    She was last seen on the parking lot of her place of employment, in the 1200 block of College Ave., Alton, IL, speaking to a white male, approximately 40-years-old, with brown hair, possibly graying around the temples. This male was driving, what is believed to be, a silver or light gray colored Chevrolet Malibu.

    Anyone with information on this case is asked to call the Alton Police Department at 618-463-3505 ext. 250.

    The family of the missing person is offering a $5,000 cash reward for any information that leads to the location and recovery of Bonnie Woodward.

    Alton woman's disappearance considered suspicious

    Police said Tuesday that the disappearance of Bonnie Woodward is suspicious because her car was left behind with its windows down, she has not contacted her special-needs child and her cell phone and credit cards have not been used.

    [snip]

    Police Chief David Hayes said the disappearance has no known connection to a report that Woodward's daughter left home voluntarily a few weeks ago. The daughter was 17 at the time but has since turned 18.
