Vehicle connected to 20-year-old cold case recovered from Ohio River

A vehicle connected to the disappearance of a mother and her two children nearly 20 years ago has been recovered, and the Indiana State Police confirmed human remains were found inside the vehicle on Tuesday.

Stephanie Van Nguyen, 26, went missing in April 2002 along with her two children, 4-year-old Kristina Nguyen and 3-year-old John Nguyen.

Nguyen left a note saying she was going to drive into the Ohio River, police said. She and her children were never found, and the case eventually went cold until police reopened it this year. 

Lt. Joe Macaluso said the note was found by Nguyen’s family, who reported her missing. 

It’s unusual for a missing persons case to go unsolved for so long, Macaluso said. “Oftentimes, we are able to locate missing people sooner than later.”
