As the three-week mark inches closer since missing New Canaan mother of five Jennifer Farber Dulos was last seen, family and friends, issued a statement saying they are "living in limbo," as they await news.
"Jennifer’s family, friends, and above all her children are living in limbo — missing her embrace, her lilting laugh, her bedtime backrubs, her gentle strength," the statement said. "Please know that the children are safe and loved and supported in every respect. But more than anything in the world, they long to know where their mother is."
The statement, issued by Carrie Luft on behalf of the family and friends of Dulos, comes as the children's father, Fotis Dulos bailed out of jail Tuesday, June 11, on charges in connection with the disappearance of Jennifer Dulos. His attorney, Norm Pattis, said he will soon address how Fotis Dulos will be able to resume his relationship with his children.
The children have been staying with Jennifer Dulos' mother, Gloria Farber, in New York City since her disappearance on Friday, May 24. Farber has filed for custody of the children.
The couple was in the middle of a contentious divorce at the time she disappeared.
"As the news cycle propels the story of Jennifer’s disappearance forward, we must not lose sight of the enormous human cost of this tragedy: five young children have not seen their mother in 18 days," the statement said. "Jennifer is the constant presence in their lives. She has sole physical custody and has devoted her full energies to their care and happiness."
"Someone has information about Jennifer’s disappearance or her whereabouts," they added.
The New Canaan Police Department has created a website, FindJenniferDulos.com , and a dedicated email address, FindJenniferDulos@newcanaanct.gov . Tips can also call the New Canaan Police tip line at (203) 594-3544.
