Husband arrested in missing family case in Colorado

Husband arrested in missing family case in Colorado

However, Albert would not take other questions and did not provide greater detail, citing the open and active investigation.

But he said he became anxious when one of her friends contacted him around noon and said Shanann wasn't responding to messages.

He said he hasn't spoken to her parents since the tragedy, but a neighbor told him they flew to Colorado. "I knew she had a doctor's appointment that morning because she's pregnant". She said she saw her go inside. "She seemed pretty happy". "Nothing was here. I mean, she wasn't here, the kids weren't here, nobody was here".

On Thursday, a Colorado Bureau of Investigation official told reporters that investigators had found Shannan Watts' body and were trying to recover the bodies of the children from property owned by a petroleum company, the Coloradoan reported. The FBI joined the investigation, authorities said Wednesday.

Just after midnight Thursday, Frederick police announced that investigators had arrested Watts' husband, Chris, and were awaiting charges.

CNN reported that a friend dropped off Shanann Watts around 2 a.m. on Monday, the day she went missing.

Among the things that puzzled investigators is that Shanann Watts' purse and medications for the children were found at her house.


"If you're out there, just ... just come back", Watts said.

The August 2012 deed shows that Watts signed it while already living in Colorado.

In the wake of the disappearance, Watts gave numerous interviews with local and national news outlets, wringing his hands at his fear over the welfare of his wife, who was 15 weeks pregnant at the time of her disappearance.

Watts and her daughters, 4-year-old Bella and 3-year-old Celeste, were reported missing Monday.

However, the department tweeted that Watts has not yet been charged.

Police in Frederick have arrested Chris Watts, the husband of a pregnant woman who disappeared with their two daughters on Monday. Chris Watts allegedly confessed late Wednesday night in connection with the case. "I hope that she's somewhere safe right now and with the kids", he responded. Authorities didn't say anything about the whereabouts of the three. He is being held without bail at the Weld County Jail.

The woman's husband and father to the two girls, 33-year-old Chris Watts, was taken into custody Wednesday, according to police in the town of Frederick, about 28 miles (45 kilometres) north of Denver.
