The affluent community is still shocked by this mystery, which is now gaining national attention.
“It’s just surprising there’s so many police officers around and the park is much more crowded,” Kelly Robb of Stamford said.
Family and friends are holding onto hope that the mother of five will be found safe.
“We’re so immensely grateful for all their efforts. The New Canaan police, the Connecticut State Police, we know they are working around the clock and they are amazing so deep thanks to them,” said Carrie Luft, a family spokesperson.
New Canaan police say they have opened a criminal investigation, which they say is protocol with any missing persons case, to find out if Dulos was the victim of foul play.
“She would never, ever disappear,” Luft said.
Dulos moved from Farmington to New Canaan after filing for a divorce nearly two years ago. In her initial affidavit filed in the divorce case, she details allegations against her estranged husband Fotis Dulos.
In the document Jennifer Dulos said she was “terrified for (HER) family’s safety, especially since discovering the gun, since my husband has a history of controlling, volatile and delusional behavior.”
In the court document she also alleges that her husband threatened to kidnap the children and take them to his native Greece.
In a court filing, Fotis Dulos refused those allegations, said he turned the gun in to Farmington police and claimed his wife was unfit to be the sole parent of their children. He also said that Jennifer Dulos was taking medical for mental health issues and cited an incident where she yelled at and called her husband names in front of guests.
Family and friends are asking anyone who may have seen something Friday to say something.
“If you have any information about her whereabouts or concerning her disappearance please, please contact the New Canaan police or the Connecticut State Police and help us find Jennifer,” Luft said.
Police said the five children are safe with family. There is a prayer vigil scheduled for Jennifer Dulos at the St. Aloysius Parish on Cherry Street in New Canaan at 8:30 p.m.
