David Corsaut said his three daughters were supposed to spend the Fourth of July holiday at home with him. Now, nearly a week later, he has no idea where they could possibly be.Screenshot/KOCO
As KOCO reports, Corsaut went to the home of his ex-wife, Destiny, on July 3 to pick up his three girls: Anastachiah (Annie), three, Melainey, two, and Izabella (Izzy), five.
When he arrived at her apartment in Chickasha, Oklahoma, no one was home.
In an interview with News 9, Corsaut explained that he had reached out to Destiny about the pickup, which was scheduled to occur at 6:00 p.m., but his messages went unreturned and he headed on over to her house anyway:
“When I was trying to get a hold of her about it, she wouldn’t respond to me or wouldn’t say anything,” he says. “So, I went to her house as I always go to go pick them up and she wasn’t there.”
He returned the following morning, but this time it became apparent something was seriously wrong.
Corsaut told News 9 that the door to his ex-wife’s apartment was wide open and the place had been trashed. Again, there were no signs of his children:
“The door was wide open. It looked like the house was thrashed, tables turned over, trash everywhere and everything, and nobody was there.”
Upon the discovery, Corsaut called the police.
Perhaps even more troubling is that Destiny’s keys, purse, cell phone, and other belongings were found inside the apartment. Her car remained parked in the parking lot outside.Screenshot/KOCO
According to a timeline of events, Destiny’s boyfriend, James Hitchcock, said in an interview with News 9 he put gas in Destiny’s car around 5:30 p.m. on July 3, before her shift at the Dollar General.
Hitchcock said that he believed Destiny then picked her children up from a babysitter between 11:30 p.m. and midnight that evening.
According to KOCO, the store manager of the Dollar General said Destiny told a co-worker “See you tomorrow” before leaving her shift at the end of the night, but never showed up for her shift the following day.
Her family has said that they have no idea of her whereabouts.
David Corsaut’s girlfriend, Mikayla Robinson, pleaded for the girls’ safe return:
“I love you girls. It’s very frustrating. I’m sorry. I just want you to bring them back. They don’t know what is going on,” Robinson said.
Chickasha police have posted a notice, asking the public to be on the lookout for the mother of three:
*** LOCATED ***This young mother and her young children were located in Oklahoma City, OK on July 23, 2017….
The distraught father revealed to News 9 that if Destiny has in fact run away, this wouldn’t be the first time. Four years ago she reportedly fled out of state after their break up, but she was alone.
That her children are possibly with her is particularly concerning. David said his main priority at this point is making sure his girls are safe:
“I just worry about how they’re dealing with it and everything,” says David. “I’m sure they don’t know what’s going on. I just want to know where they’re at or at least know they’re alright.”
Police have not yet issued an Amber alert for the three girls.
It’s a call that commenters on the Chickasha police department Facebook page want to see made:
A woman claiming to be the children’s aunt commented that police are unable to issue an Amber alert until they have a description of a vehicle and/or a license plate number.
Anyone with information is urged to contact the Chickasha Police Department or to call 911.
