Missing Iowa family of four found dead in Mexico, officials say

At 12:02 a.m. Friday, the Sharps' family members went to Creston police to report their relatives missing. Creston police contacted the U.S. Department of State, and the bodies were found during a welfare check at the condo in Tulum, on the Yucatan Peninsula.

Authorities say it wasn't immediately clear what caused the deaths. Police said there were no obvious signs of foul play.

The last contact the family had with the Sharps was a picture the son posted to Snapchat of his feet by the water that day, Weland said.

"Please respect the family at this time as they go through the grieving process", she wrote.

Police acted following the USA embassy's report that the family was missing. Additionally, they pinged cellphones that showed the Sharps were still in Mexico "with no movement on their phones", she wrote.

The State Department is now advising "increased caution" for Americans travelling to Mexico, with the area the Sharp family were staying seeing an experience in homicides this year. But the extended family waited until Thursday night to call authorities in case the Sharps had problems with their flight.

"We are working to come up with the best way to memorialize him", Baldwin said.

Family and friends are mourning the loss of the Sharp family who were found dead in a condo in Mexico on Friday, March 23, 2018.

"We are extremely anxious and hope they are found soon or can contact their family", Peterson wrote.

Then the family failed to attend a basketball game Wednesday night in Danville, Illinois - a game Weland said the family was looking forward to.

Last September, at the Northland Oil Stock Car championship at Adams County Speedway, the Creston News Advertiser reported that Sharp earned his second win of the 2017 season. Amy was a dental-claims specialist and the two children were very active.

Kevin, Amy, Sterling, and Adrianna Sharp of Creston were reported missing and were later found dead on a vacation to Mexico.

Harris said the Sharp family was tightly knit.

"Not only to the community, but to his family and the sport he loved", Harris said.

"He was a great personal friend", Baldwin told the Des Moines Register on Friday. "They were to be right here enjoying us play basketball today", Lorensen stated.

She said her daughter and Kevin were married for more than 16 years and got together after a weekend to a St. Louis Cardinals baseball game.

Autopsies on the Sharps are being performed in Mexico. The Quintana Roo state prosecutor's office said there were "no signs of violence were found on the bodies or in the room".
