A Lake County woman and her two young daughters have been found safe, days after their disappearance prompted a massive search and a candlelight vigil.
Authorities said late Sunday that Aneta Marsek and the two girls had been vacationing in the Wisconsin Dells and were unharmed.
They were discovered a day after her estranged husband made a public plea for their safe return.
Authorities had feared that foul play was a possibility, since no family members knew of her whereabouts and her cell phone had been turned off and could not be traced.
There was no immediate explanation for why Marsek had left the state without notifying anyone.
