Missing mom Linda Fellenbaum took a job as a live-in housekeeper for a Georgia man after she disappeared from Joliet.
For more than a month, the police hunted for some sign Hinsdale mom Linda Fellenbaum was still alive after she ran barefoot into the night during an argument with her boyfriend. Detectives are still piecing together why Fellenbaum dropped out of circulation for 38 days in October and November, and what exactly she was up to all that time. But for about a week and a half between Fellenbaum disappearing from her boyfriend's Joliet home and turning up in a Georgia jail, she hung out under a fake name in a small town south of Atlanta where she worked as a live-in housekeeper for a retired truck driver. The trucker, a 48-year-old Sharpsburg, Ga., resident who says he owns rental properties and dabbles in the movie business, told how he met …

The Hinsdale and Joliet resident was arrested in Fulton County, Ga., and used a fake name but was identified through fingerprints, police said. Detectives believe her missing son is safe, too.
Missing mom Linda Fellenbaum has turned up in a Georgia jail cell and detectives believe her toddler is safe as well.

Missing mother Linda Fellenbaum—who is wanted on an arrest warrant—was tossed out of her Hinsdale apartment a month and a half before she vanished. Her toddler son remains missing as well.
Just a month and a half before she supposedly ran barefoot into the Joliet night, never to be seen again, DuPage County Sheriff's deputies served an eviction order at missing mom Linda Fellenbaum's Hinsdale apartment. Fellenbaum's possessions were carried from the apartment on Sept. 5 and left outside. By then, according to police, Fellenbaum, 33, was living with her new boyfriend, Donald Wolak, in his house on Joliet's west side. According to the report, she did not return to collect her things. Wolak and Fellenbaum's relationship started after they met online in late August, police said, but the affair had apparently soured by Oct. 16. That was when Wolak, 40, told police Fellenbaum stole a "large sum of cash" and one of his handguns. …
