Wyoming police expected to search Johnson Park for missing mother Ana Marie Carrillo

Ana Marie Carrillo was last seen Sept. 3. Police have called the circumstances surrounding her disappearing suspicious. She was last seen in Wyoming, Mich.

Law enforcement officers are scheduled to search Johnson Park in Wyoming today as part of their investigation into the disappearance of 35-year-old mother of three.

Ana Maria Carrillo was last seen Sept. 3, 2017, when she left her home to pick up her children at a residence on Colby Street in Wyoming, where the children's father lives.

Wyoming Police Capt. Kim Foster said information gathered during the investigation of her disappearance led officers to the park. A search was conducted Wednesday, without the discovery of anything of significance, Foster said. But investigators have narrowed the search area and plan to focus their efforts today.

Foster also asked the public to stay away from the areas of the park that are roped off by police tape, to avoid interfering with the investigation.

The father of Carrillo's children, Andrew Hudson, resides on Colby Street, and told police that Carrillo never arrived at his residence that Sunday in September. A week after Carrillo's disappearance, Hudson and his father, Lyle Hudson, were both charged with providing false statements to police.

Then, on Oct. 12, Andrew Hudson was charged with open murder.

Investigators said they began treating Carrillo's disappearance as a potential crime soon after she was reported missing. The evening she was last seen, the vehicle she was driving was found in a parking lot near 40th Street and Clyde Park Avenue in Wyoming, about six miles from where the police will be searching today. And, in a written statement issued Sept. 1, 2017, investigators said they suspected foul play and had identified Hudson as a suspect in her disappearance.

Hudson was one of the last known persons to speak with Carrillo, police said.

Anyone with information related to this case is encouraged to contact the Wyoming Department of Public Safety at 616-530-7300 or Silent Observer at 616-774-2345.
