The family of Minnesota mother Madeline Kingsbury, who has been missing since March 31, has released a sweet video of the woman singing to her baby boy back in 2021.

The clip, shared with Fox News Digital, shows Kingsbury holding the newborn over one shoulder, with his head resting under her chin, as she sings the 1931 tune "Dream a Little Dream of Me." The missing woman, whose disappearance has been called "involuntary" and "suspicious" by police, is the mom of two young kids, ages 5 and 2.

"Madeline is always in constant communication with family," her brother Stephen Kingsbury, who recently returned home to Winona, Minnesota, from his Army deployment overseas after his father called to tell him his sibling was missing, told Fox News. "I came home to support my family and contribute in any way possible in efforts to locate Madeline and bring her home."

Stephen believes that his work as an active member of the military for more than a decade will help aid local law enforcement with their search for Kingsbury in areas along the Mississippi River, which range from swamplands to woods.

"Working in small and large teams with a variety of personality types and talent levels for this long has also given me the tools necessary to manage individual and collective skill sets and utilize them effectively to achieve a shared common goal," Stephen told Fox News.

Police have not named a suspect in Kingsbury's disappearance but have suggested that foul play was involved. "We believe Maddi's disappearance is involuntary, suspicious and we are all concerned for her safety," Winona Police Chief Tom Williams said.

Kingsbury, 26, was last seen publicly on March 31 at around 8 a.m. when she and her ex, the father of her two kids, dropped the children off at daycare before coming back to the home they shared. She didn't show up for work that day and never returned to the daycare center to pick up the kids.

The woman's cellphone, wallet, ID and the jacket she wore in the morning were found in her home. 

Kingsbury's sister, Megan Kingsbury, previously told KARE-TV that the missing woman and her kids' father, Adam Fravel, were living together and raising the kids together, but were no longer a couple. Megan added that Kingsbury had been looking into finding another place to live when she vanished.

Fravel told cops he last saw the mother of his children after he left their house in her dark blue Chrysler around 10 a.m. on March 31. His attorney issued a statement in which Fravel spoke out against "myriad accusations," according to KARE-TV. "I did not have anything to do with Maddi’s disappearance," he said.

"I want the mother of my 5-year-old and 2-year-old to be found and brought home safely," he added in the statement. "Law enforcement advised me ... [not to] attend press conferences or assist in searches due to safety concerns. However, my non-attendance and silence has been inferred by many as a sign of apathy, or worse. That could not be further from the truth."

Fox News Digital has obtained court documents that state that Fravel had a tense standoff with police and social workers on April 4 as they tried to take the kids, whom he does not have custody of. He was painted as "non-cooperative" in the court documents, according to Fox.

"At one point, (Fravel) took the younger child into the residence and locked the door despite being told that the children were in the care and custody of Winona County," Winona County Health and Human Services stated in a petition.

Stephen and the rest of Kingsbury's family have been focusing on search efforts for the missing woman. "We have, in a short period of time, rallied for Madeline and created/maintained a group of passionate and motivated folks from across the state who care for and love Madeline with such an intensity that I have no doubt in the steadfastness of our mission," Stephen told Fox News.
