Missing Children Located

On April 29, 2009 at 9:52 AM, the Downers Grove Police Department responded to 1311 Blanchard for a missing person report.

The mother at that residence, Carolyn Bossany, left the house to drive her two children to school. Carolyn’s mother-in-law remained at the house and contacted the husband when Carolyn did not return home. It was then learned that the children did not arrive at school. Upon learning that his wife and children did not arrive at school, Mr. Bossany contacted the Downers Grove Police Department.

Carolyn was last seen driving a gray 2005 Nissan Altima with Illinois Registration LBR1834 . The missing children are Claire Bossany (10 years old) and George Bossany (7 years old)

Although there has been no direct threat that she or her children will be harmed, Carolyn has exhibited some erratic behavior over the last few days where the safety of her and the children are a concern. The police department is hoping to locate these individuals to check on their well-being.

Any person with information in regards to the whereabouts should contact the Downers Grove Police Department immediately at 630-434-5600.


On April 30, 2009 at 10:00 AM, Ms. Bossany and her two children were located at a hotel in Kentucky. Local authorities are speaking with her and are assessing the situation.

Ms. Bossany and her children are in good health. It is believed that Ms. Bossany was traveling to a relative’s house in Georgia.

At this point, there are no criminal charges to be filed in this incident. The Downers Grove Police Department considers this case to be closed.
