Adam Fravel, the father of 26-year-old missing Winona woman Madeline Kingsbury’s children, was the last known person to see her.
On March 31, Fravel and Kingsbury dropped their two kids off at daycare in Maddi’s minivan. Winona police say Fravel told them he and Maddi drove home, Fravel left alone in the van, and Maddi was gone when he returned later that day.
He made a statement yesterday stating: “Over the course of the last 12 days, my family and I have been subject to a myriad of accusations regarding the disappearance of the mother of my children, Maddi Kingsbury. During these last 12 days, I have cooperated with law enforcement at every turn, including sitting down for multiple interviews with Winona County law enforcement. I did not have anything to do with Maddi’s disappearance.”
The remainder of his full statement reads: “I want the mother of my 5-year-old and 2-year-old to be found and brought home safely. I want that more than anything. Law enforcement advised me on April 2nd that they would not recommend that I attend the press conferences or that I assist in the searches due to safety concerns. However, my non-attendance and silence has been inferred by many as a sign of apathy, or worse. That could not be further from the truth. I want Maddi home and for her to be able to be with our two children. God Bless the Kingsbury family and please bring her home safely.”
Madi has not been seen since March 31st. Thousands of volunteers have been searching for her in Winona and Fillmore Counties in Minnesota.
