Family's emotional plea for help finding missing mom, believed murdered

Resigned to the probability that their daughter is dead, the parents of missing Adelle Jensen appealed for the public's help finding her on Friday night.

Minneapolis police this week arrested the ex-boyfriend of the 25-year-old mother-of-one – who was reported missing about 10 days ago – on suspicion of probable cause murder.

KARE 11 reports a candlelight vigil was held at Minneapolis' Loring Park on Friday night, at which her mother and father pleaded for any information on what happened to her.

"Please help bring our Addie home and for justice to be served," Cinda Jensen told the crowd, while her father David said: "It is a missing person, possible homicide, but I hate to say it but I think she's up with God right now. I don't think I'm going to get her back."

The family has created a "Bring Addie Home" Facebook page so people can contact them with information while FOX 9 reports that Friday night's vigil attracted more than 200 people.

According to the TV station, at the time she went missing she had been staying with her parents in Carver County, trying to save money to get her own apartment and so her 2-year-old daughter Chloe could go to pre-school.

"She loved being a mom more than anything in the world and she was an absolutely wonderful mom," her mother said at the vigil.

WCCO reports that she had moved back in with her parents about three weeks ago, telling them she was "struggling and scared" after experiencing problems with her ex-boyfriend, the 31-year-old man arrested by police.

She was last seen in downtown Minneapolis in the early hours of Wednesday morning, Nov. 18. She is known to have frequented bars in northeast or downtown, including Mac's Industrial Sports Bar and The Bulldog.

KSTP reports that police could potentially charge her ex on Monday.

A college fund has been set up online for Jensen's daughter, which has so far raised more than $7,000.
