  • Town of Frederick COShanann Watts 34 and her two daughters ages 3 and 4 are missing in Frederick Colo

She was reported missing along with her two daughters - Celeste, 3, and Bella, 4 - on Monday.

An Endangered Missing Alert has been issued for Shannan Watts (age 34), and her two daughters, Celeste and Bella Watts (ages 3&4).

Police said Watts is being held at the Weld County Jail, no charges have yet been filed.

Watts was arrested Wednesday night and is due to appear in court Thursday. Utoft told police she last saw Shanann at about 2 a.m. on Monday when they got home from a work trip in Arizona. The woman and two girls were reported missing early this week.

Shanann Watts often posts photos and videos on Facebook of her family, friends and herself. Watts says that when he left the house that next morning at 5:15 a.m., Shanann was still there.

Colorado prosecutors say they believe a Colorado man killed his pregnant wife and two daughters in their home.

Law enforcement told Denver7 late Wednesday night that Christopher Watts, 33, has confessed to the crime. I need to see everybody again.

Demi Lovato's overdose allegedly caused by drugs laced with fentanyl
After Lovato's two week stint in the hospital he posted a statement on her Instagram saying she is going to focus on her sobriety. Latest reports say that Demi Lovato suffered a near-fatal overdose after she smoked Oxycodone laced with Fentanyl.

Watts said he waited impatiently for his family's return, "with every light in the house on;" stressing that he had been unable to sleep as he didn't know whether his family was safe or not.

In an interview with NBC's Today show, the married father-of-three said he and Shannan had an emotional conversation that morning, but he would not go into further detail. Shanann Watts was 15 weeks pregnant. "She didn't show up for it ... and I was even more concerned". "I just want them to come back". The FBI and Colorado Bureau of Investigation were brought in Wednesday to help in the investigation.

Frankie Rzucek, who is identified on Shanann Watts' Facebook page as being her brother, posted overnight on his page saying he just wanted to know why.

Authorities declined to discuss a possible motive in the alleged triple killing during Thursday's news conference, as well as how they believe Shanann Watts and her daughters were killed and whether Christopher Watts has been cooperative with investigators.

"She would take the kids to the pool and [Chris Watts] would always take them in a little wagon", he said. And if they're not safe right now, that's what's tearing me apart. I need to see everybody. Watts and her children have been reported missing out of Frederick.

About noon that day, he spotted a friend of his wife come to the door of the family home as he watched on a remote security camera.
