Goddard mom and children found safe in Idaho

Update: March 30, 2018

The Goddard Police Department says Audrey Lappan, and her two children, Grayson (9) and Mabel (15 mo) have been located safe in Montpelier, Idaho.

The children have been placed in the custody of Idaho Children and Family Services until transportation back to Kansas can be arranged.

No charges have been filed at this time against Audrey Lappan and the investigation continues.

The Goddard Police Department asks for the public's help in finding a mother and two children that could be in danger.

Police say Audrey Lappan and her two children, nine-year-old Grayson and 15-month-old Mabel are possibly traveling in a dark blue Honda Pilot with Kansas tag 711-KUA.

They were last seen Monday (March 26). Police say Lappan has only communicated with one family member since than.

Anyone with information on where the mother and children could be or where they could be headed should call 911 or the Goddard Police Department at 316-794-2051

Police say it appears Lappan planned to take her children "for some time."

Police say although they don't believe the children are in danger, they're concerned for the children's well being. Goddard police say there had been problems in the home with Lappan and her husband (the children's father).

A family member who spoke with Eyewitness News says the children were allowed to be under Lappan's care, but she never told anyone she was planning to leave with them. Police say it appears Lappan had planned to leave with her children because many of their belongings are missing from the family home.

Some difficulties police say they're having in the case is that there are no phone records or credit-card information that may indicate where Lappan and her children may be.

Police say they're concerned with Lappan's current state of mind and in turn, are concerned about the children's well being since they've been gone now for four days.
