The Manitowoc County Sheriff’s office is following up on multiple leads in its’ search for two, missing Valders girls. Detective Lieutenant Jason Jost says 15-year old Sara Copple and 7-year old Delilah Gauthier were both last seen August 3rd. Authorities believe both may be with Delilah’s father, 24-year old Zachary Gauthier…who has a felony warrant out for his arrest. The three of them could be travelling in a 2008 Ford Mustang, silver in color, with Wisconsin plates P7733W. Jost has said they were last seen in ‘northern’ Wisconsin and officials think the trio is still together. The sheriff’s spokesman said this disappearance is “more than a custody disagreement” and the younger child’s family would describe her flight from the area as unexpected. If you have any information about their whereabouts…you’re urged to call the Manitowoc County Sheriff’s department at 683-4200.
