Three children were abducted from 1 Wilshire Drive in Mackinaw, Illinois at 5 PM on June 9, 2008. Kaitlin Elizabeth Roten is a white 12 year old female. Kaitlin sometimes goes by the last name of Cleary. Jacob Thomas Cleary is a white 8 year old male. Chloe Renee Cleary is a white 3 year old female. I am so sad to hear they found her dead. I heard this on the news a couple days ago and hoped she had just left on her own accord. Husband is now running with the kids.
