DELTONA, Fla. (WFTV) — The search for the bodies of a missing Deltona mother and her two children resumed about noon Wednesday.

Volusia County Sheriff's officials said they have set up a command post at the Duke Power Plant on Debary Avenue in Deltona.

Investigators are searching for the bodies of Yessenia Suarez, 28, and her two children, 8-year-old Michael Otto and 9-year-old Thalia Otto.

The three disappeared from their Deltona home Oct. 23.

Suarez's husband, Luis Toledo, 31, has confessed to killing Suarez, according to investigators. He has not told them where her body is.

Toledo is charged with second-degree murder in her death.

According to investigators, Toledo denied killing the children and has implicated someone else in their deaths.

No charges have been filed in the deaths of the children.

On Oct. 24, sheriff's investigators said the woman and children were dead, although they had no idea where their bodies were.

Suarez told investigators that he killed Suarez when he hit her in the throat, following an argument.

Suarez's mother has begged Toledo to tell investigators where the bodies of her daughter and grandchildren are.

Sheriff's officials said the Seminole County Sheriff's Office, Lake County Sheriff's Office and Volusia County Fire Services will aid in the search.
