The Cor­nelius Police Depart­ment in North Car­oli­na has named Diana Cojo­cari, the moth­er of 11-year-old Madali­na Cojo­cari who went miss­ing in 2022, as a sus­pect in her daugh­ter’s disappearance. 

This marks the first time the girl’s moth­er has been pub­licly iden­ti­fied as a poten­tial per­pe­tra­tor in the ongo­ing investigation.

Madali­na was last seen get­ting off her school bus on Novem­ber 21, 2022 in Cor­nelius. Her par­ents did not report her miss­ing until over three weeks lat­er on Decem­ber 15, despite the school con­tact­ing Diana “sev­er­al” times to inquire about Madali­na’s absence.

Diana and her hus­band, Christo­pher Palmiter, who is Madali­na’s step­fa­ther, were ini­tial­ly arrest­ed and charged with fail­ing to report a minor miss­ing. Diana served 16 months in jail but was released last month, while Christo­pher received 30 months probation.

Police have stat­ed since the begin­ning that Diana and Christo­pher were not ful­ly trans­par­ent about what they knew. A search war­rant also revealed Diana had asked a rel­a­tive to help her escape from her mar­riage to Christo­pher short­ly before Madali­na disappeared.

Author­i­ties are urg­ing the pub­lic to con­tin­ue shar­ing infor­ma­tion that could aid in locat­ing Madali­na, who has now been miss­ing for over eight months. Diana’s new des­ig­na­tion as a sus­pect sug­gests inves­ti­ga­tors believe she may have played a role in her daugh­ter’s vanishing.
