No reimbursement sought in case of missing Volo mom, children

VOLO – Lake County officials will not seek reimbursement for costs incurred while searching for a Volo woman and her two children, the state's attorney said.

Aneta Marsek, 33, was found with her two children vacationing in the Wisconsin Dells four days after being reported missing by her estranged husband, Dan Marsek, according to the Lake County Sheriff's Office.

There is no legal basis for seeking reimbursement, State's Attorney Michael Waller said Wednesday. No one lied to the police during the course of the investigation, he added.

"The police did their job," Waller said. "They took the disappearance of the woman and her two children seriously."

Law enforcement conducted a 12-square-mile grid search, a dive team checked the retention ponds in the area of Aneta Marsek's house, and other agencies conducted aerial searches, according to previous reporting.

"It was typical for the type of situation we had," Lake County Sheriff's Office Chief Deputy Wayne Hunter said.

It would be too difficult to put together an estimate on how much the search cost, Hunter added.
