The 50-year-old mother of five was last seen more than a week ago dropping her kids off at school.

Later that day, police found her empty SUV near a park.

Authorities have arrested her estranged husband Fotis Dulos and his girlfriend Michele Troconis in connection with the investigation.

She accused him of infidelity, cruelty and threatening to kidnap the children and take them to Greece.

He has denied the allegations.

SOUNDBITE: UNIDENTIFIED FRIEND, SAYING: "She's incredibly devoted to her 5 children.

They are her world.

Detectives are reportedly treating the case as a homicide.
