    I wonder if her original intention was to return the rental van to Plano or back to Illinois? Was this a spur of the moment trip/vaca? Does she have a husband or bf? Not sure what is going on with such little info.

    So who returned the van? It says they were last seen on May 10 but the van was returned on May 13. It says the van was rented in Illinois and returned in Texas, was this their original destination?

    She's a real estate agent so surely going out of town without notice and for that long period of time must not be something that she usually does. Business seems to be doing well according to her website too. This is all very strange...

    I don't understand why it took nearly two weeks to hit the media? Were these children not missed from school? Did she withdraw them/ transfer them?

    So little to go on!
    Six-year-old Shannon Sherrill disappeared from her front yard in Thorntown, Indiana in October, 1986. Someone knows where she is......

    This is very local to me. Her husband (from what I gather) is part of the melges family which is a boat/yacht building family and very well known.

    Read that they may also have 2 lizards with them.

    To me this sounds like it was a planned departure simply because who brings their lizards with on a road trip?!

    I thought the same thing as school is still in session here. Unless they went private which is very possible.

    This whole thing seemed very strange, especially with the little amount of info given. After digging around a while, I finally found an article that gives some more information that "somewhat" explains more of the story. See link for more info.

    BBM (I apologize, I couldn't figure out how to do in quotes, so bolded instead.)

    She called in to school to excuse her sons for a vacation May 10-13 and has not been heard from since, said Lt. Ed Gritzner of Lake Geneva police.

    She is divorced and in violation of child custody rules, as the boys have missed three visitations with their father, Gritzner said.

    That gives some more info that helps. Couldn't find if they were divorced or not but by them mentioning that she was related to the Melges family, I assumed they were still married.

    I was reading the Gazette articles too. Missed this one.

    My husband and I were talking about that and I wonder if it's her office staff or automated. They seem to be reappearing type of posts rather then "personal" messages written by her.

    But who knows.

    I'm curious to see if they release more info. They really aren't giving people a lot to go by.

    Moments after your post- her FB business site was updated to say it's her team updating FB, not her. Interesting.......because this 'team' must have known she and the boys were reported missing.Right?

    UPDATE: Missing Michalene Melges is the former daughter-in-law of famed sailor Harry C. "Buddy" Melges, Jr. * On a personal note I was an acquaintance of Buddy...we ran in the same circles in the summers sailing
