(WPBN) Michigan State Police say 45-year-old Kelli Stapleton attempted to kill herself and her 14-year-old daughter, Isabelle Tuesday.
Authorities received a call from Kelli's husband, and father of Isabelle on Tuesday afternoon after a message was left on his personal phone by Kelli.
"The basis for the father's request to police to help locate the missing women was a phone message that had been left for him apparently by his wife that was disconcerting to him," said Michigan State Police Lt. Kip Belcher.
Deputies from the Benzie County Sheriff's Department located the van in a wooded area around 6:30 p.m..
Mother and daughter were found unconscious inside.
Police said Kelli placed two burning, portable charcoal grills inside a car with the doors and windows closed with both the Isabelle and herself in the car.
