“I’m not eating. I’m not sleeping. All I’m wondering is, are my kids cold?”; A mother pleads for the return of missing sons
SPRINGFIELD, Mo. – Authorities are still searching for Darrell Peak, 40, and his two children, Mayson Peak, three, and Kaiden Peak, four. The Greene County Sheriff’s Office believes Darrell took the boys away with no intention of returning.
Bonnie Peak is the mother of two missing boys and Darrell’s wife. She said the last few days had been the most difficult she had ever had to go through.
” I do not eat. I do not sleep. All I wonder is, are my kids cold? Are they hungry? Where do they sleep? Do they cry for me? As a mother, these are the things I have to sit here and worry about. all day and every day, ”Bonnie said.
Bonnie’s only wish is for her two young sons to return home safe and sound. Darrell and his children were last seen on Thursday, February 25, around 7 p.m. in Warsaw, traveling on foot.
“When he left he was angry,” Bonnie said. “Sometimes when he’s angry he takes off and leaves for a few hours. It’s so out of character. As if he wasn’t the type to fly away with the kids.
Local officials said they tried to raise an orange alert, but the case does not meet the criteria. Bonnie is hoping they will eventually issue an Orange Alert, but doesn’t think Darrell would hurt Kaiden or Mayson.
“One of the reasons is that he’s the father,” Bonnie said. “I don’t think for a second that he would physically harm our children, ever, in a million years. He’s a very good father and he’s a good person. I know he’s been going through a lot lately and I’m not sure if he’s just having a nervous breakdown. I think he wanted to go on his own and I think the kids were just in the car when he got in my car and took off.
“Every track we have seems to be a day, two days old,” Bonnie said. “It’s the hardest thing I’ve ever experienced in my life. Not knowing where my children are. I just want my kids to come home.
