POPLAR BLUFF, Mo. – A Missouri mother and child are missing from Poplar Bluff.

A statewide alert has been sent to search for Sara Ann Brown, 32, and 18-month-old Geneva Genova.  Brown’s family said she’d recently shown signs of mental instability and were concerned for their safety.

Brown and her and daughter had been living at her mother’s home until March 7, 2018. They left and did not give a destination.  Family members last talked with Brown on March 16, but she refused to tell family members where she was staying.  She believes the two may be in Osage Beach, Missouri.

Police spoke with a clerk at the Osage Beach Hotel. The clerk told them Sara Brown was a guest on Friday, March 16.  The Missouri State Highway Patrol lists Sara Ann Brown on their active missing adult list on March 17, 2018.

The Missouri Department of Public Safety tells FOX 2 that the two may be traveling in a white 2009 Cadillac CTS bearing Missouri license plates CL2G5X. An image of that make and model can be seen below.

Anyone with information on their whereabouts is asked to contact the Poplar Bluff Police Department at 573-785-5776.

President Harry Truman said: “It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.” That spirit is alive and well at Fox 2. Our teamwork is on display each and every day.

Our news slogan is: “Coverage You Can Count On.” We quite frankly are too busy to worry about who gets the credit. Our main concern is serving the viewer.

We go where the stories take us. Whether it be Washington, D.C when a Belleville man opened fire during a congressional baseball game practice or to Puerto Rico where local Ameren crews restored power after more than 5 months in the dark.

Coverage You Can Count On means “Waking up your Day” with our top-rated morning show. From 4:00 am-10:00 am we are leading the way with breaking news. But our early morning crew also knows how to have some fun! Our strong commitment to the communities we serve is highlighted with our Friday neighborhood shows.

Our investigative unit consists of three reporters. Elliott Davis focuses on government waste, Chris Hayes is our investigative reporter, and Mike Colombo is our consumer reporter. They work in unison with the news department by sharing resources and ideas.

We continue to cover breaking news aggressively and relied on our seasoned journalists to make a difference with the stories we covered. The shooting of Arnold Police Officer Ryan O’Connor is just one example of that. Jasmine Huda was the only reporter who had exclusive access to the O’Connor family during his amazing rehabilitation in Colorado.

Last, but certainly not least, FOX 2 and KPLR 11 are committed to covering local politics. We host debates among candidates and have the most extensive presidential election coverage. Our commitment to politics isn’t just during an election year. We produce two political shows that air every weekend.
