MIDDLESEX COUNTY, Va. -- Middlesex County deputies are searching for a Virginia mother who mysteriously disappeared from her home Tuesday morning.

TerriLynn St. John, 23, was last heard from around 7:30 a.m., when she went to her car in her front yard, preparing to take her children to daycare, according to family members.

The door of the home was found open and her small children were found alone inside her home.

Family members are especially concerned about St. John’s whereabouts because her car is still in the driveway and her cell phone was found in the bushes outside her home.
