A mum found dead with her two daughters in a car park “loved the girls more than anything”, says a friend.
The bodies of Natalie Chambers, 30, Isabel, four, and two-year-old Elise, were inside the vehicle at a car park in Texas on Thursday.
The family were last heard from when they left their home in Forney on Wednesday at roughly 8am for a park play date with friends in Grapevine.
Now, friend Gabrielle Hoag has said the family is “shattered” by the tragedy.
On a GoFundMe page set up to support the family, she said: “Natalie Chambers and her two beautiful daughters, 4-year-old Izabel, and 2-year-old Elise, were taken from this world far too soon.
“Their family is shattered after a desperate search for the girls on July 22 did not end the way we’d all prayed for.
“Natalie loved her girls and her family more than anything.”
“We want to provide an opportunity for those that may want to contribute to the family, as this loss was so unexpected. Natalie’s husband Corey wants everyone to know how much their support, messages, or acts of kindness in his girls’ memory are appreciated.
Our friends, family, and community are mourning with this sweet family.”
Natalie, Isabel and Elise were reported missing on Wednesday afternoon, Kaufman County Sheriff’s Office told KDFW.
Natalie’s cellphone was last detected around 1pm in Dallas.
Authorities said it’s too early to know the cause of deaths.
