Update (10:55 a.m.): Oneida County Sheriff Rob Maciol tells WIBX, his dive team was requested by Rome Police to assist in searching for a firearm they believed to be a part of their investigation. After approximately 60 minutes, the dive team recovered a firearm and sealed it as evidence.

Rome Police are looking for information on the whereabouts of a missing mother of three who is presumed dead, and police say her husband is the primary suspect and is in custody.

Kerrilee D'Avolio, 32, was last seen Saturday night, police say. Based on information they've received, police believe she is the victim of a homicide and her body may have been placed in a garbage dumpster somewhere in the city of Rome.

Her husband, Jason D'Avolio, is in custody and local media reports say he's cooperating with police to some extent.

WKTV reports the children were dropped off a family member's workplace:

Sometime before 11 a.m., authorities say that Jason D'Avolio brought their three children, ages 2, 4, and 5 years old, to an auto shop where his brother worked in Chadwicks.

Reports say the brother contacted police soon after.

Anyone with information on the whereabouts of Kerrilee D'Avolio, or who may have seen something suspicious, is asked to contact Rome Police at 315-339-7780.
