Search under way for SE Missouri mother of 3

JACKSON, Mo. (AP) - A southeast Missouri major case squad has been activated to help search for a missing mother of three.

Jackson police say 39-year-old Jacque Sue Waller was last seen in the city Wednesday afternoon. Her car was found abandoned on Interstate 55.

The Cape Girardeau-Bollinger County Major Case Squad was activated Thursday to join in the search. Jackson Police Lt. Rodney Barnes told the Southeast Missourian it's uncommon to activate the squad for missing persons cases, but authorities are concerned because disappearing is out of character for Waller.

Barnes wouldn't say if authorities suspect foul play.

KFVS-TV reports that a truck and a 14-foot boat belonging to Waller's husband were taken to the Cape Girardeau Sheriff's Department, where they're being examined by investigators.
