Missing mom Martha Unger, young daughters may have been ‘coerced’ to travel to Mexico for ‘religious rehab’

A mom from rural Kansas and her two young daughters suddenly vanished over the weekend — and investigators believe they may have been forced to travel to a religious rehabilitation facility in Mexico.

Martha Unger, 23, and her daughters Madilynn Grace Unger, 2, and Haylie Faith Unger, 1, were reported missing from their home in rural Haskell County just before 7 p.m. Friday, the Kansas Bureau of Investigation wrote on Facebook.

Authorities say the young family may have been forcibly taken out of the country by a couple in their fifties.

“Investigators believe they may have been coerced to travel to Mexico to a religious rehabilitation facility with Corney and Elizabeth Klaasen,” the KBI said in a post that included a picture of the older couple.

Authorities are asking the public for help locating the missing family.

The Klassens are believed to be driving a white and black Chevy Blazer with a Mexico tag. Corney is described as a male standing approximately 6 feet 2 inches tall and weighing about 200 pounds. He is clean-shaven and was last seen wearing jeans and a button-up shirt.

While authorities did not share a description of Elizabeth Klaasen, a photograph provided of the couple shows they are both white with brown hair and glasses.

According to police, the missing mom is driving a 2015 white Ford Explorer with a Kansas license plate reading “301RJY.”

She is described as a young, white woman standing approximately 5 feet 6 inches tall and weighing about 120 pounds.

Martha has brown hair and green eyes while both of her daughters have blonde hair and blue eyes, police said.

Police ask the public to call 911 immediately if they see missing family, suspects or their vehicles.
