DELTONA — Investigators are going over notes and looking for new leads in the search for the bodies of a missing central Florida woman and her two young children.

Volusia County Sheriff's spokesman Gary Davidson says detectives are taking a break Monday in the active search for 28-year-old Yessenia Suarez, 8-year-old Michael Otto and 9-year-old Thalia Otto.

Davidson says the Deltona woman's husband, 31-year-old Luis Toledo remains a person of interest. Suarez and the children went missing last week after a fight outside her workplace.

Toldeo remains in the Volusia County Jail on a domestic battery charge. On Saturday while being questioned by authorities, he asked to use the bathroom. Officials say he forced the door shut, smashed the mirror and used glass shared to attempt suicide. His injuries weren't life threatening.
