FRANKLIN — Authorities have launched an investigation at a home in Franklin Thursday evening, but have not yet announced why.

Franklin police haven't specified the exact reason they're outside the home, just telling us it's an ongoing investigation.

What we do know is the house belongs to 70-year-old Sandra Eckert. Friday marks three weeks since she went missing.

One thing to know about Eckert is that when she went missing, so did her husband's car – a gray 2005 Dodge Stratus with the license plate 319LGT.

The car was last seen at 3 a.m. by Muskego police on March 27, the day after she went missing.

Wes Eckert, Sandra's husband, said it was no secret that he and his wife didn't get along, but he wants her to come home.

"If anybody sees her, send her home. Send her home for the kids. Not so much me, but for the kids," said Eckert.

Police say her cellphone, social media, and bank accounts have been inactive since she was last seen.

"They're nice to me. But at the same time, it comes out once in a while... you killed mom. It's not the case. But I am low-hanging fruit," Wes said.

The family has offered a $10,000 reward for information leading them back to their loved one.

They've even created a website,

Police say if you have any information to contact them right away at (414) 425-2522.
