A Texas mother who is 40 weeks pregnant with twins has gone missing on the day she was supposed to be induced – but in a bizarre twist, there are now questions over whether she was actually pregnant.
Elizabeth Jasso's family haven't heard from her since Thursday and have said they are "very worried about her".
She was last seen alive at her husband's grave.
Milko Jasso, 29, was shot and killed in Baytown, Texas in February this year, following a physical confrontation with a 20-year-old woman and her 36-year-old boyfriend.
An initial appeal for information was posted on Facebook to find Elizabeth, but since then her mother-in-law has claimed that she faked the pregnancy and used scan pictures she "bought online".
Police are desperately trying to ascertain where Jasso and her twins might be.
Blanca Rubio, the mother of Jasso’s late husband, told ABC13 on Friday: "They took my son, but I was going to be blessed with two boys."
She said the last time she talked to Jasso, they were looking forward to the arrival of the twins the next day.
"I had talked to her Wednesday night saying, 'Little mija, I can't wait until tomorrow. You better not have them babies until I get home.'"
CCTV footage at a neighbour's house showed Jasso leaving her home without her hospital bag in a white BMW on Thursday morning.
Later that morning, a worker at the cemetery where her husband is buried claims to have seen her.

"It's just, ever since, we don't know nothing," said Rubio.
Jasso’s dad also expressed fears for his daughter’s safety.
"We're worried," he said. "Very worried about her, and her safety and her babies."
Gigi Dominquez, Jasso’s best friend, said the mother wasn’t the type to abandon them.
She said: "[She's] always smiling, always laughing. To not see that right now, it hurts to know maybe… We're not thinking the worst and praying for the best.
"We are praying that somebody calls, or she calls, and says we are in the hospital and the boys are fine."
Jasso’s mother is hoping her daughter hears her plea and decides to come home.
In a message to her daughter, she pleaded: "Let us know you're OK. I know in my heart you are OK. We are all praying [for] you, OK?"
