Greene County investigators say the search for a father and his two children has become more concerning. The three have now been missing for three days.
ENDANGERED PERSON ADVISORY: Two children, father reported missing from Greene CountyThe Greene County Sheriff’s Office is asking for the public’s help in locating two children and their father who have been reported missing.
Authorities are looking for Darrell Peak, 40, and his two children, 3-year-old Mayson Peak and 4-year-old Kaiden Peak.
The Greene County Sheriff’s Office and Missouri State Highway Patrol have issued an Endangered Person Advisory in the case as of 4:30 p.m. Friday.
According to the sheriff’s office, the children were last seen around 7 p.m. Thursday in Warsaw, Missouri. However, the missing person incident was reported around 4 p.m. Thursday from a home in the 1200 block E. FR 28 in Pleasant Hope.
Family members told authorities that Darrell’s behavior is out of character, and they have not been able to contact him since he and his two children went missing.
“It really worries me where they are,” Peak’s daughter Katie said. “I just want them home, I miss them.”
Family have been working around the clock to try and find the three. A few of Peak’s other children quickly began a search in Springfield.
”We went driving around Springfield trying to figure out places he would be,” Katie Peak said. “Because my brother is his best friend, so he would know. All the places he thought he would be, he wasn’t.”
Darrell Peak suffers from depression and has made suicidal statements in the past, according to the Missouri State Highway Patrol.
“Him and my mom got into an argument,” Peak’s daughter Shyla said. “Took off in his Camaro and crashed it over there. And that’s when he jumped in my mom’s car with the two babies.”
