Police have obtained a warrant for the arrest of Catherine Hoggle charging her with child neglect in a bizarre case that has not only Hoggle missing but also her 3-year-old daughter Sarah and 2-year-old son Jacob missing as well.
Hoggle allegedly dropped off her son at a friend’s house and her daughter at daycare this week, but neither children was found. She went missing on Sept. 8 after she and the children’s father Troy Turner stopped at a Germantown restaurant on their way to report to police that their children were missing. Police say that’s when Hoggle slipped out of the restaurant and hasn’t contacted family since.
Thursday, police said Hoggle was captured on video in the area of Route 118 (Germantown Road) between the area of Interstate 270 and the Germantown Commons shopping center on Middlebrook Road on Sept. 9 at about 4:30 a.m. The children are not seen in the video. Police searched a wooded area off Riffle Ford Road in Germantown Wednesday but turned up nothing, according to Capt. Paul Starks.
Police also said tipsters led them to a home in Virginia where Hoggle’s children were not found but two other children were found neglected in the home there.
