They have been found and their mother's body has possibly been found:
The Peoria Journal Star website reported family members have been told the body is that of 30–year–old MeLisa Cleary of Mackinaw.
However one of Cleary's sisters told News 25 late Monday night that the family has not been told definitively that the body is that of Cleary.
The Tazewell County Sheriff's office says it's investigating...
Tazewell County authorities say Daniel Cleary and the couple's three children were found in a Peoria hotel after an amber alert was issued overnight. Cleary was taken into custody, but authorities won't say why.
MeLisa's sisters say she was in the process of leaving her husband and say they had been in constant contact with her, until Friday.
"She has expressed that she fears for her life. She is in the process of (a marriage) separation. She is a mother of three. She would not have left her kids and she would not have left the house without calling somebody," Cleary's sister Brandy Gerard said Monday afternoon.

This family is going through so much. I'm glad the children are safe, and hope they get answers and justice for the mother now.

Brandy Gerard squealed with delight Friday when she saw her sister's alleged killer dressed in blue prison garb and wearing shackles on his hands and feet.
"I was just excited," said Gerard. "It's nice to see him all cuffed up and not able to go anywhere."
The man, who legally still is her brother-in-law, is Daniel K. Cleary, 35, of Normal. The body of her sister MeLisa D. Cleary, 30, a mother of three, was found June 9, 2008, just outside Lincoln under a bridge, next to railroad tracks.
She was reported missing by family two days earlier. She died from crushing impact injuries to her head and neck.
On Friday, Daniel Cleary stood quiet during most of the five-minute hearing as Tazewell County Associate Circuit Judge Jerelyn Maher-Schulz read him the charges, five counts of first-degree murder for the bludgeoning death of his wife.
