A 57-year-old New Smyrna Beach woman who was last seen in July is still missing, but police said today they have located members of her family who also disappeared.

In November, police began looking for Karen Lee Burger's daughter, Christina Lea Thompson Hilgefort, 38, and her husband, Allen Arthur Hilgefort, 33.

They, along with their 2-year-old child, disappeared from the area and were wanted for questioning about Burger's disappearance.

The couple and their child were located Dec. 22 after they were involved in a traffic crash in Ohio, New Smyrna Beach police Investigator Mike Covey said.

Covey would not say why the family disappeared or whether they are suspected of being involved in Burger's disappearance.

"That's part of the investigation," he said.

Anyone with information can contact Covey at 386-424-2223.
