FORT ATKINSON (WKOW) -- The Fort Atkinson Police Department is asking for help finding three missing children and their father, who is believed to be involved in their disappearance.
According to a department news release, the father, Hui Zhu was last seen on Monday July 23 at about 2:00 a.m. in Fort Atkinson. He was driving his white, 2015 Ford F-150 truck with a Wisconsin plate LH4783.
The release said Zhu left with his three children, Elina, a three-month-old girl, Evelyn, a three-year-old girl, and Jefferson, an eleven-year-old boy. The crime alert said he took the children without their mother's wishes and hasn't been seen since.
Officials say Zhu spoke with the children's mother (his wife,) Meixin Lin Monday at about 10:00 a.m. but she has not heard from him since. He reportedly left with $7,000 in cash and the kids' birth certificates.
The crime alert states on July 23, Zhu said he was at O'Hare airport in Chicago and was going to take the children to China. When the mother asked if she could pick up the children so he could go to China alone, he disconnected the call. Law enforcement confirmed neither the father nor the children have boarded any flights.
The release said in the past few months, Zhu has been in declining mental health and had been very paranoid in the days leading up to the disappearance.
Officials say Zhu's truck was last seen in West Virginia on July 25.
Anyone having contact or information about the family should contact the Fort Atkinson Police Department at 920-563-7777 immediately.
