CORNELIUS, NC (QUEEN CITY NEWS) — Investigators are looking for eyewitnesses who may have seen a family member of missing 11-year-old Madalina or a Toyota Prius in the Madison County area, according to the Cornelius Police Department.
“We are seeking firsthand eyewitness information from anyone who may have seen this Toyota Prius or a white female in the area between November 22, 2022 and December 15, 2022,” a police flier said.
Police said one of Madalina’s family members was in Madison County, North Carolina. It is not reported how the investigators learned this information.
The missing girl was last seen getting off a school bus in Cornelius on November 21, 2022.
Her mother, Diana Cajacari, and stepfather, Christopher Palmiter, reportedly said they last saw Madalina on Nov. 23.
According to a Mecklenburg County warrant obtained by Queen City News, Diana Cajacari and Palmiter got into an argument on Nov. 23. During the argument, Madalino went to her room to go to bed around 10 p.m., and then Palmiter decided to drive to Michigan, where he has family, to pick up the items. Around 11:30 a.m. the next day, Kohakari went to Madalina’s room to check on her, and Madalina was gone.
Palmiter was reported missing by Madalina three days later, records showed, and Kohakari said she waited three weeks to report herself missing because she feared it would affect her relationship with her husband.
