Vital Statistics at Time of Disappearance
Details of Disappearance
Madeline Edman vanished July 29, 2005, after she walked out of a North Side laundromat while her mother stayed behind to finish the laundry.“When her mother got home, she was gone,” La Crosse police Capt. Shawn Kudron said. “She’s been missing since then.”
Investigators questioned her family and friends in the wake of her disappearance, said Kudron, who took over the case about a year after she went missing. Over the years, police submitted her information to national databases for missing children and collected her parents’ DNA to compare to any remains found. Nothing worked.
Edman’s mother, Kathy Edman, died in 2010 with hope but no answers in her daughter’s disappearance. Madeline is listed as a survivor in her obituary.
