Public Search Ends for Maddi Kingsbury – New Leads Develop


The Winona Police Department has announced the end of the organized search for missing woman Madeline Kingsbury. Police added that neither the search for Kingsbury nor the investigation into her disappearance is ending. As investigators develop new leads, teams of law enforcement will begin targeted searches.

Kingsbury was last seen around 8 a.m. on March 31 when she dropped her children off at daycare, along with the children’s father.

“Shortly after 8 a.m., Maddi did not show up for work, which is very unlike her and we are worried for her safety,” said Winona Police Chief Tom Williams.

The father of Kingsbury’s children told authorities he left the home around 10 a.m. in the minivan she normally drives, a 2014 Chrysler Town and Country colored dark blue. When he returned home, he told police Kingsbury was not there.

“We are doing everything we can to bring Maddi home. We have spoken with many of her family members and friends and are actively following any developing information,” Williams said. “No stone is being left unturned and we are using every tool at our disposal to find her.” Many of you have asked how you can help and we really appreciate that.”

Kingsbury is described as 5-foot-4-inches tall and about 135 points with brown hair and hazel eyes.

Anyone with information on her whereabouts is asked to call Winona police at 507-457-6288.
