'There Is Concern For The Children's Welfare:' Entire Family Of Six Missing After Father Served With No-Contact Order
Robert Herrington has a no contact order regarding his wife Erika Herrington and their four children but investigators believe all of them are together and in possible danger.
An entire Minnesota family is missing and investigators say they may be in danger.
Robert Herrington, 34, his estranged wife Erika Herrington and their four children —Landon and Carter, 8, Briella, 3. and Delilah, 2 — vanished last week and the Stearns County Sheriff's Office is now asking the public for help locating them.
“There is a Domestic Assault No Contact Order in place restricting Mr. Herrington from being around his wife or children,” the sheriff’s office noted in a Saturday press release. "There is concern for the children's welfare due to this and other conditions they may be in.”
Investigators believe the family is together, traveling in a 2015 Hyundai Sonata.
This isn’t the first incident in which the family was reported missing and in possible danger.
Erika Herrington's mother reported her and the children missing last year, KARE11 in Minneapolis reports. Investigators eventually found them along with Robert in South Dakota. But before doing so, Erika’s mom told them that she feared Robert was going to hurt them all,
He has indeed hurt Erika previously.
Just two months before that incident, Robert pinned Erika down on the floor by her neck before threatening her with a knife. He’s currently awaiting sentencing for that incident after pleading guilty to domestic assault.
Robert was charged twice with violating the no-contact order over the past year, KARE11 reports.
The Sonata is reportedly white with a black top. Authorities ask the public to keep a look out for the car which has the Minnesota license BWD 364. Anyone who has seen the Herringtons or their vehicle is urged to call the Stearns County Sheriff's Office at 320-251-4240.
