Search continues for missing Albion couple

ALBION, Mich. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Albion police calls in a major crimes task force to search for a missing couple.

Family members reported 42 year old Donna Frost missing on Sunday. Investigators haven't been able to find her boyfriend, 47 year old Jackie Dale McConnell to question him. He is also now considered missing by police.

"I honestly think that he kidnapped her took her out of state somewhere because he doesn't want her to leave and be with someone else," said Renee Farrier, daughter of Donna Frost.

Renee Farrier says she went straight to police when she didn't hear from her mother for more than a week.

She made sure they knew about the couple's history of violence in the eight months they've been together.

"She had a broken ankle and the family accused him of causing that. He claims that she was flirting with another man  and that's why he broke her ankle," Chief Scott Kipp, Albion Dept. of Public Safety.

Newschannel 3 has found McConnell has an extensive criminal history including criminal sexual conduct involving a child, assault with a dangerous weapon and felony burglary.

"Because of the lack of the information and we cant find either of the subjects were very concerned about her safety at this time and that's why we've called in the Calhoun county major crimes task force to work on this investigation with us," said Chief Kipp.

Eleven investigator from State Police, Marshall and Emmett Township helped fulfill a search warrant Thursday inside the couple's home to search for clues.

With no credit cards, and a cell phone left at the house, investigators are relying on tips from people who may have spotted the couple's car that is also missing.

"We had information from Ohio and also North Carolina possibly, but I don't know where those leads have led to detectives at this time," said Chief Kipp.

If you have any information about this case, you're asked to call the lead detective at: (517) 629-7824.
