Family marks Madeline Kingsbury’s 27th birthday

(ABC 6 News) – The family of the Winona mother that’s been missing since March is marking her 27th birthday Thursday.

Madeline Kingsbury has not been seen since she dropped her kids off at daycare two months ago.

The community Facebook group ‘Finding Madeline Kingsbury‘ says they are planning a new search along the banks of the Mississippi river this Saturday morning at 10 a.m.

“Happy birthday, dear Madi. Happy birthday to you. We love you, Madi. Happy birthday,” sang David Kingsbury.

Family and friends honored her Thursday promising not to give up hope and they’re not alone. Porch lights and buildings across southeast Minnesota are lighting up blue in honor of Madi.

Madi’s sister, Megan Kingsbury sat down with ABC 6 News anchor Robin Wolfram to talk about their grief and their hope.
