Mothers concerned over Edgerton missing teens


The mothers of two missing Edgerton teenagers told WAOW's Madison sister station 27 News that their concern grows as they enter a second day without having heard from their children.

Edgerton police officials said Derek Siefken and Emma Hansen, both 13, left their homes Wednesday, and through text messages left with friends and phone conversations, are believed to be possibly at risk.

Wendy Hansen-Haines said she last saw her daughter Wednesday as Hansen-Haines left their home to run errands.

Hansen-Haines said her daughter and Siefken had been in a boyfriend-girlfriend relationship until recently, when Hansen-Haines said the parents of both children intervened to end the relationship.

Siefken's mother, Melissa Siefken said her son slipped out of the family home Monday for a brief time and attempted to contact Hansen.

Siefken's father, Jeff Siefken said he last saw his son Wednesday morning and noticed nothing out of the ordinary with the boy's behavior or mood.

Family members and friends have put missing persons' posters at stores and other public places in Edgerton, Milton and Janesville.

Edgerton Police Chief Tom Klubertanz said officers continue to follow up leads on the possible whereabouts of the teenagers.
