NEW CANAAN, Conn. (WTIC) -- Jennifer Dulos, a mother of five children, was last seen driving a black 2017 Chevrolet Suburban in New Canaan on Friday.

Now, along with local authorities, the Connecticut State Police Major Crimes Unit is investigating her disappearance. Police have released little about the investigation, but documents reviewed by FOX61 show Jennifer was in the middle of a years-long custody battle with her estranged husband, Fotis Dulos. She filed for divorce in 2017.

A custody hearing for a Guardian Ad Litem, which is an individual the court appoints if the parties are unable to resolve a parenting dispute, was scheduled for Wednesday morning. Fotis did not respond to a request for comment and neither did his lawyer not Jennifer’s lawyer.

Fotis and Jennifer are listed as co-owners it a Farmington home on a private drive, which is now up for sale.

According to court records, the husband of Jennifer Dulos was facing a number of lawsuits in connection with the construction of a home and a protracted custody battle that began on two years ago and is still not resolved.

The New Canaan Police Department is asking anyone with information to contact them.
