LAKE MARY, Fla. - After meeting at the Volusia County Sheriff's Department on Monday night, the family of a missing Deltona woman says sheriff's investigators will be back out searching for Yessenia Suarez on Tuesday.

Emilio Suarez, Yessenia's father, told Local 6 he was very frustrated at the fact the department decided to call off Monday's search for the bodies of his daughter and her two children in order to brainstorm and go over leads.

He was so frustrated, he got his family together to conduct their own search Monday afternoon around Lake Monroe, which is just a couple blocks away.

Suarez didn't tell us what was said in his meeting with sheriff's investigators, other than his family would not be searching on Tuesday as the sheriff's department had decided to resume its search.

"This situation is critical right now," Suarez said. "If she is still alive, or she's hurt, the more time passes, the worse it's going to get, so we cannot stop."

Investigators still won't say how they know the mother and two children are dead.

A week ago Tuesday was the last time Yessenia's mother saw her alive. Her mother said Yessenia was distraught over her marriage with Luis Toledo, who, as of right now, is still the only person of interest in the family's disappearance and killing. He's still in jail on a domestic violence charge.

Volusia County investigators are keeping a tight lip about their investigation, and would not say where they are searching for the family or why.
