Search Continues For Missing Central Fla. Woman & Her Children

DELTONA (CBSMiami/AP) — Central Florida authorities continue to look for a missing woman and her two young children, two days after her husband was charged with the woman's death.

Luis Toledo is in the Volusia County Jail, charged with killing Yessenia Suarez. Suarez and her children — 8-year-old Michael Otto and 9-year-old Thalia Otto — have been missing since last week.

Authorities say 31-year-old Toeldo confessed to using his martial arts skills to kill Suarez. He has implicated someone else in the deaths of the children, but authorities haven't released that person's name.

The Daytona Beach News-Journal reported about 60 law enforcement officers searched a wide area southwest of Deltona on Wednesday. Thursday's search will focus on a heavily-wooded area.
