Found this article but not much else especially the circumstances around her disappearance are being shared. Family of missing Evansville woman Dawnita Wilkerson looking for answers

"This is an active criminal case," Nora (aunt) said. "They do have suspects."
So it appears they believe her disappearance is due to foul play.
6 children. She is described as very laid back, and very much in touch with her friends. This sure doesn't sound like voluntary disappearance.
Dawnita is very attractive.

I wonder how LE has tied her to Carbondale, IL

Ex husband, ex boyfriend(s)? Not much is being disclosed.

Dawnita, a mother of six children, ages 15 to 22, her two youngest being 15-year-old twin girls, has been missing since Father’s Day.

[Dawnita’s aunt] Julia told Dateline that Dawnita had been staying at her brother’s house in Evansville, Indiana. On that day, June 21, she walked out of the house saying she would be right back. She never came back.

“She’s always in contact with the twins,” Julia said. “But suddenly they couldn’t reach her. And her phone went dark around 9 a.m. on Monday.”

Julia added that Dawnita always called her mother every morning. But on that Monday, there was no call.

“Every day she calls her mom at 5 a.m.,” Julia said. “Somebody always knows where she is. And suddenly everybody just stopped hearing from her. We knew something had to be wrong.”

In July, detectives met with the family to brief them on the case, but the family said they are not authorized to discuss details for fear of harming the investigation.

Detective Dexter Wolf with the Evansville Police Department did confirm to Dateline that Dawnita’s case is still an open investigation and police are following up on every tip and lead they receive.

Dawnita Wilkerson told her family she‘d be right back when she walked out of her brother’s house in Evansville, Indiana on Sunday, June 21, 2020. The 44-year-old never returned. Her phone was shut off by the next morning and when she didn’t call her mother or her twin as she usually did, her family became worried and reported her missing. In July, detectives met with the family to brief them on the case, but the family said they are not authorized to discuss details for fear of harming the investigation. Through donations from the community, thousands of fliers have been printed and two billboards have been purchased and put up at prominent locations in town, with Dawnita’s photos and information. Detective Dexter Wolf with the Evansville Police Department did confirm to Dateline that Dawnita’s case is still an open investigation and police are following up on every tip and lead they receive. Dawnita is 5’3” and weighs approximately 145 pounds. She has brown eyes and dark hair. Anyone who may have information on Dawnita’s whereabouts is asked to contact the Evansville Police Department’s Adult Investigative Unit at 812-436-7979 or call the Tip Hotline at 1-800-78-CRIME (1-800-782-7463).
