OUTAGAMIE — An Outagamie mother and daughter were missing since Sunday afternoon, but on Wednesday they were found.

According to the Outagamie County Sheriff's Office's Facebook page, "The missing mother and daughter from the Dale area have been found safe. Law enforcement is communicating with them and they are no longer believed to be in danger. We greatly appreciate the outpouring of support from the community. Word spread quickly and the concern was clearly visible. No further information can be released at this time."

"I think they were abducted," father and husband Kelly Rousseau said. Authorities say 55-year-old Jill Rousseau and 21-year-old Jordan Rousseauwere not injured.

It all started on Sunday. Kelly said he was coming home from Minnesota on Sunday and talked with Jill when he was about four hours from home. Then he stopped for dinner in Wausau and tried to call her again, but she didn't answer.

He says he got home, and his wife and daughter weren't home. Jill’s phone was there on and Jordan’s was there off. He says he hasn't seen or heard from them since.

"My opinion, and I want to emphasize my opinion this has nothing to do with the sheriff's department, is that they were abducted because nothing else makes sense," Kelly said at a news conference Wednesday. "And then, I'm a problem solver, so it's like, well if that's the case then who did it and why? I have no idea."

It's unclear exactly what happened to the mother and daughter. This artcile will be updated as more information is provided.
