34 year old Darcey Cottrell has been missing since Wednesday, June 1, 2016 from Danville, IL. She was last seen outside her home on East Main Street. Darcey Cottrell is described as 5 feet, 2 inches tall and weighing around 130 pounds. Also, the police say she was driving a green Ford Ranger with license plate number AN3826. She was supposedly headed to Discount Tobacco Warehouse, where she’s worked for the past two years. However, she never arrived.
Darcey Cottrell, 34, was last seen near her home in Danville, Illinois, on the afternoon of June 1, according to the station. Her mom says she left to go to work at 2:30 pm, but she never made it there.
“I was scared because my grandson thinks someone took her, and I don’t even want to think along those lines. But something’s going on,” Cottrell’s mother, Cindy Lowe, told WCIA.
Lowe says she saw her daughter the day before she went missing — and nothing seemed to be out of the ordinary.
“Everything was the same. We had some pizza together,” she told the station. “I had no red flags.”
Police say she was driving a green Ford Ranger with license plate number AN3826. She is described as 5 feet, 2 inches tall and weighing around 130 pounds, according to the department’s Facebook page.
If anyone has any information on missing Darcey Cottrell, please contact the Danville Police Department at (217) 431 – 2250 or the Vermilion County Crime Stoppers at (217) 446 – TIPS.
There are two Danville Police detectives assigned to the case, but little information is available to be released, according to Commander Jane McFadden who spoke with Dateline.
“We don’t know at this point if there is any foul play involved,” McFadden said. “We’re puzzle-piecing this thing together. We have to look at it first as the worst-case scenario. You never know what could have happened.”
Officials are asking anyone who may have seen or spoken to Darcey after 2:30 p.m. the last day she was seen, to phone police.
“If we have an established timeline, we’re more likely able to hopefully figure out what may have happened,” Commander McFadden told Dateline.
While police search, Darcey’s wide array of family and friends are leaving no stone unturned in their search for answers. Dozens of people turned out to search the areas surrounding Darcey’s neighborhood Saturday. The original posting Darcey’s mother made on Facebook, regarding her daughter’s disappearance, has also been shared more than 3,200 times.
“We just want her home safe for her sons and all her loved ones,” Darcey’s mother Cindy told Dateline. “If anyone has any information, we’re begging you to come forward.”
Police confirmed Tuesday morning that a missing Illinois mother, who was last seen leaving for work, has been found safe.
Darcey Cottrell, who disappeared on June 1, was pulled over in another state on a traffic stop Tuesday morning, Commander Jane McFadden of the Danville Police Department told Dateline.
“She told officers that she was fine and not in any danger,” Commander McFadden said. “They provided us with a local address which we passed along to her family.”
