Update, October 31, 2013:
As the search for the bodies of a Deltona mother and her two children resumed Thursday morning, the Volusia County Sheriff’s Office said it is asking Deltona residents in the area of Debary Avenue and Coventry Estates Boulevard to “…walk their own property lines and contact [the Sheriff’s Office] if they see anything suspicious.”
Anyone with information about the case is asked to call the Sheriff’s Office at (386) 736-5999.
The Volusia County Sheriff’s Office, along with other agencies, continued the search Wednesday for the body of a Deltona mother and her two children. The Sheriff’s Office arrested Luis Toledo, the husband of missing 28-year old Deltona mother Yessenia Suarez, on a second-degree murder charge Monday night. Deputies have been looking for the bodies of Suarez and her two children since last Wednesday, when the three were reported missing. The Sheriff’s Office says Toledo told investigators he struck Suarez when she became aggressive during an argument last Tuesday night, and she died from the martial arts blow. However, investigators say he has implicated someone else in the deaths of the children, and has not said where the bodies are. Toledo has not been charged in the deaths of the children.
The Volusia County Sheriff’s Office set up its Mobile Command Post in Deltona Wednesday, along Debary Avenue north of Lake Monroe. Volusia deputies along with members of the Seminole County and Lake County Sheriff’s Offices, plus the Volusia County Fire Services, resumed the search for Suarez around noon Wednesday. Deputies in trucks, some towing all-terrain vehicles, came and went from the area throughout the afternoon. Shortly after 4 p.m., Volusia County Sheriff’s spokesperson Gary Davidson said the teams had not located the bodies, but that the search would continue until nightfall and possibly also Thursday morning.
