LAKE MARY, Fla. -

The search for the bodies of a missing central Florida woman and her two young children has now moved to Seminole County.

Crews from Texas-based Equusearch spent Wednesday looking in a wooded area near a Publix supermarket in Lake Mary, where Yessienia Suarez's car was found. Suarez and her children, 8-year-old Michael Otto and 9-year-old Thalia Otto, went missing Oct. 23 following a fight with her husband. Suarez lived in Deltona.

Equusearch founder Tim Miller told the Daytona Beach News-Journal they were searching some 200 acres of wooded area.

Luis Toledo is charged with the second-degree murder of his wife. He told investigators he didn't kill the children.

The newspaper reports Suarez's family is helping Equusearch. They plan to continue the search on Thursday.
