Mom is still missing

Posted by wlpo on April 24, 2011

Police are searching for a northern Illinois mother of two who went missing more than a week ago. Authorities say 34-year-old Melissa Ann Best of Round Lake Park took out the ingredients for dinner on April 15, dropped her daughter at a friend’s house, then vanished. Surveillance video from a nearby pizza parlor shows Best’s minivan driving to and leaving the home of her daughter’s friend. But there has been no sign of her or the van since then. Police Chief George Filenko says the search is more difficult because Best didn’t have a cell phone or credit cards, so there’s no way to track her electronically. He says it’s out of character for Best not to contact her children for more than a week.
