“I wouldn’t wish this on my worst enemy,” said Zack Snow, Oaklee’father. “I’ve been on my phone day in, day out. I mean, you know, contacting and trying to find somebody that might know where she’s at.”
According to Seminole County investigator J.T. Palmer, the toddler’s mother, Madison Marshall, left Cromwell with Oaklee and her and Snow’s 7-month-old son, Coleton, and eventually took off to Indiana with her ex-boyfriend Roan Waters. This happened around Jan. 19.
“They were with their mother,” said Palmer. “She has custody. There is no court orders and there was no proof that they were in danger.”
Palmer says according to authorities in Indianapolis, on Feb. 9, witnesses saw Oaklee being carried out of what he was told was a “crack house.”
“They described it as she was either asleep or unconscious. She wasn’t moving,” said Palmer. “She was wrapped in a blanket.”
Marshall allegedly said Oaklee was hurt and needed to go to a hospital, which is where she claimed she was taking her.
“We have no knowledge of where she’s at, we just know that she did not make it to the hospital that night,” said Palmer.
“No hospitals had any record of Oaklee ever being turned in,” added April Kelley, a close family friend.
Meanwhile, Palmer said Coleton was abandoned on the house’s couch. Thanks to someone there calling authorities, the 7-month-old was picked up by CPS and is now in Snow’s custody.
"Oaklee was a happy baby," recalled family friend April Kelley
. "She has the biggest eyes and she's beautiful. She has the best smile."
Zac Snow said he heard that Marshall dropped their daughter off anonymously at a hospital in Indiana after the 2-year-old had some sort of medical emergency. Meanwhile, Coltan Snow
was left in a home by himself, but someone found him and called Child Protective Services
, said Zac Snow. Colton has since been returned to his father.
Zac Snow said he called as many hospitals as he could find, but no one knew where his daughter was. Zac Snow said he filed a missing persons report on Feb. 9. Since then, the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department
has been handling the case.
