Missing: Alice Van Alstine | Des Moines, IA
Missing

Alice Van Alstine

Alice was last seen at her apartment by her children before they went to bed. Her six year old son told investigators that when he woke up on Saturday morning his mother was not there. Alice's purse and money were found in the apartment and relatives believe she left without a coat and shoes. It didn't appear that there was a struggle in the apartment but investigators did find a broken bottle on the floor. They also found a door to Alice's car open and the keys in the ignition. Based on interviews with Alice's friends and family, she was very close to her family and was a good mother who would not have voluntarily left. Alice has four children who were 3, 4, 6, and 8 when she sent missing. Law enforcement believes Alice's disappearance is "mysterious" and that foul play is feared but has not been confirmed.
