Sacramento Police Discover Woman Dead, Launch Urgent Search for Missing Children and FatherSource: X/Sacramento Police Department

A tragic scene unfolded in a Sacramento neighborhood as police found a woman dead in her home and her two young children are now missing, alongside their father. As reported by ABC10, authorities arrived at the 3700 block of Didcot Circle on Monday evening, responding to a medical aid call. There, police discovered the mother, whose name has not been released, and subsequently pronounced her dead at the scene.

During the investigation, the Sacramento Police Department was unable to locate the woman's children, four-year-old Athena Lee and two-year-old Mateo Lee, nor their father, 38-year-old Cameron Lee. Efforts to contact Cameron, who is believed to be traveling in a grey 2023 Honda Passport, license plate 9JUS091, are ongoing. According to a KCRA report, the police have stated they want to speak with Cameron regarding the whereabouts of the children, who have been labeled as "MP" for missing person by the department.

The concerning discovery has prompted a search for the children, though it remains unclear whether they are in danger. The Sacramento Police Department has not classified Cameron Lee as a suspect or a person of interest, nor have they activated an Amber Alert as of the latest information. Amber Alerts demand specific criteria, including evidence of an abduction and imminent danger to the child, which has not been confirmed in this case.

Concerned citizens or those with potentially relevant information have been urged to aid the investigation. Individuals can contact the Sacramento police dispatch at 916-808-5471 or Sacramento Valley Crime Stoppers at 916-443-4357, where callers may remain anonymous and could be eligible for a reward of up to $1,000, should their information lead to progress in the case.
