    A Greenport woman and her young daughter, who were believed to be going away for just a couple of days, are feared to be missing by family and friends who have been unable to contact them for the past two weeks.

    Southold Police Chief Martin Flatley said a missing persons report was filed for 51-year-old Iona Costello and her daughter, both of whom were last seen on March 30.

    The chief said the car belonging to Ms. Costello — the widow of former Costello Marine co-owner George Costello — was found in a New York City parking garage. However the chief said that at this time, no foul play is suspected.

    “She did go away on a trip as planned, but she hasn’t returned in time,” said Mr. Flatley. “They are concerned, but there is no reason to believe there is any misconduct.”

    Ms. Costello’s mother, Diana Malcolmson of Shelter Island, said her granddaughter, Emily, was expected back at school Tuesday but has been absent each of the past three days. She said the family’s animals are being cared for.

    is anything like passports, medications and clothing and toiletries missing from their home??? I mean other than what you take for a few days........parking garages have cameras--what was captured on camera and when---what about her phone and computer records????? Had she been a widow long? Not to be crass but did the death of her husband leave her wealthy? Enough to disappear or to make her a target???????

    Iona Costello, who has not been heard from since March 30, has a farm in Greenport with animals that she loves — and it’s unlike her not to call and check on them, even while away, her family said today.

    Costello’s family filed a police report yesterday as their concerns mounted after not hearing from her or her daughter Emily, 14, since the day the pair left to go to New York City to see some shows.
    “We’re all kind of scratching our heads, trying to paste everything together and figure this out,” said Jane

    Costello, the niece of Iona’s husband, George, co-owner of Costello Marine in Greenport, who passed away of a heart attack two years ago.

    “Iona loves her animals. That’s what makes us think this is an odd situation,” she said, adding that even when she travels, she always calls to ask how her animals are faring.

    Costello and her daughter told staff at the farm that she would be “back on Tuesday,” leading her family to think she’d return on April 7. But, Costello said, there might “possibly have been a miscommunication,” because Emily was on spring break from The Ross School in East Hampton and not expected back for classes until this Tuesday, the 14th.

    Sadly, it's often a safe bet to conclude they're in the water someplace.

    From her past FB posts I can see that IC and her husband loved to travel prior to him passing. I can see her traveling with her daughter, but, she wouldn't leave her car at a parking garage on 42nd st ($$$$) for this long. I hope LE checked the waterfront areas (chelsea and so on) for surveillance footage.

    I hope they are both safe. Beautiful mom and daughter.

    These are two of the three things that really nag at me about this case.

    No cell use for that long when they normally make calls to check in on their animals sounds bad to me, too.

    And the location of the car fits with the "going to see a show" but not at all with long term parking for travel.

    I don't see how the police can say that they do not suspect misconduct. Perhaps that is because it is only a couple of days past when they were supposed to return, but coupled with the location of the car and the lack of cell phone activity, I think there is more to this than staying over longer on vacation.

    I wonder what Play they were going to see? The Lion King? Can they check and see if they made it to the show?

    Here is a list of Broadway shows.

    Costello and her daughter told staff at the farm that she would be “back on Tuesday,” leading her family to think she’d return on April 7. But, Jane Costello, a neice, said there might “possibly have been a miscommunication,” because Emily was on spring break from The Ross School in East Hampton and not expected back for classes until this Tuesday, the 14th.

    Iona and her daughter do love to travel, Costello said, so it would not be out of the question for the pair to have traveled out of the state or even the country — Iona has family in England, who have not heard from her. “She didn’t tell anyone where she was going, but she’s like that. She might go off to see a friend, or on a long weekend,” Costello said.

    Iona is 51 years old, about 120 lbs, 5’10 and blonde; Emily is now tall as her mother.

    I wonder if they have access to her bank accounts, credit cards, etc to check for activity?
