Police search for young sisters, ages 6 and 8
Update: Both children were found safe in Kansas.
KENOSHA COUNTY (WITI) -- Police are searching for two missing young sisters from the Village of Genoa City in Kenosha County. Police said the two girls, ages six and eight, were last seen leaving with their mother early Tuesday morning, January 10th. Police said based on the family's current custody situation, the girls could be in danger.
Police said eight-year-old Katie Brick and six-year-old Jenna Brick were seen leaving with their mother, Tiffany Brick, from a home on Summer Court around 6:30 a.m. Tuesday morning.
The girls live at that home with their paternal grandparents.
Police said the girls' mother recently signed an order granting custody of the girls to their grandparents.
"Tiffany agreed to have a third party supervise any out of the home excursions and she went beyond that agreement, so right now we are concerned about the welfare and safety of these children," Chief Joseph Balog, Village of Genova City Police Department said.
Officials said Tiffany may be driving a black 2006 four-door GMC Sierra K1500 pickup truck with light truck registration JZ1918. There is a pink "Browning" sticker on the back window.
Authorities say Tiffany has a Confederate flag tattoo on her right shoulder. She frequents the McHenry, Illinois and Janesville, Wisconsin areas.
Police said they may be traveling with Tiffany's boyfriend, who's been identified as Scott B. Hogel.
Chief Balog said Tiffany Brick and Scott Hogel have not been answering their phones and haven't been in contact with friends or loved ones.
"We are concerned that number one, Tiffany has not been able to be located at any of her known locations or hangouts. She`s avoiding phone contact with us. We`ve attempted to contact her boyfriend. He`s not returning any calls or messages at this time," Chief Balog said.
If you have any information on the whereabouts of these girls or their mother Tiffany, you are asked to contact the Village of Genoa City Police Department at 262-279-6252.
