ROCKFORD — Investigators with the Rockford Police Department are asking for the public’s help in locating a Rockford woman, her boyfriend and her estranged husband.
Officials say family members reported Danielle Son, 22, missing Tuesday, Feb. 19, after they had not heard from her since last Saturday. When family members went to her 834 1oth Avenue home to check on her, they found her children, ages 2 and 11 months, alone.
A follow-up investigation revealed that Son’s boyfriend, 25-year-old Sergio Quiroz, and 26-year-old Hand Son, her husband, were also missing.
Police Chief Dan O’Shea said the three people are considered endangered and that foul play is suspected.
“We’re asking for the public’s help locating these individuals,” O’Shea said.
The chief said investigators are also looking for Hand Son’s vehicle, a white 2007 Toyota Sion with red rims and Illinois license number 915407.
O’Shea would not comment on the details of the case but said he would brief media when something breaks.
According to court records, Danielle Son filed for divorce from Hand Son on Feb. 16. Hand Son is also facing a domestic violence charge that records show stems from a Jan. 14 incident where Danielle accused him of pushing her. A police report alleges that Hand Son told officers that he and Danielle had been arguing after he accused her of cheating on him.
Hand Son made his first court appearance Jan. 16 on the domestic violence charge and is scheduled to appear in front of Judge Randy Wilt again April 19.
O’Shea said anyone with information is urged to call the Rockford Police Department non-emergency number at 815-966-2900 or the Investigations Bureau, 779-500-6551. R.
