LOUDOUN COUNTY, VA (WUSA9) - The bodies of a missing Virginia woman and two children were possibly found in a creek in Ashburn Monday, according to Loudoun County officials. 

According to the sheriff's office, the body of a woman and two children were found inside the missing car. They have yet to positively identify them as the missing people. 

Courtney Ashe, 27, from Suffolk, Va. was last seen with her cousin 9-year-old Jalen C. Sills-Russell and her son 5-year-old Cameron A. Martin leaving a family home in Ashburn, Va. Friday. She was supposed to arrive in Leesburg but never arrived.

UPDATE: Family: Mom, kids found dead in submerged car in Va.

From Sky9 footage you can see the car overturned in Sycolin Creek off of Evergreen Mills Road. There's also damage to a guardrail on the roadway. 

Police has identified the car as a 2002 Ford Taurus, the car described in the missing persons report. 

Family came down from New Jersey to help with the search. 

"It's just the days have gone by and it is four days now and I just can't see her being away that long," Sabrina Jewell, the missing woman's mother, said Monday. 


Courtney and the two children have not been seen or heard from since Friday, and they were reported missing Sunday. 

"Come home," Jewell said. "We're waiting for them with open arms. We love them very much. We're not mad at her."
