One of the most high-profile missing persons cases in the Chicago area reached a grim milestone Monday. It's been five years since anyone has seen or heard from Plainfield mother Lisa Stebic.
Plainfield Police are using the anniversary as an opportunity to publicly ask once again for information leading to the woman's location.
Stebic would have turned 43 in three weeks. She was last seen the weekend of April 30, 2007, at her house in Plainfield. Her husband, Craig Stebic, told police he was working in the backyard and their kids had walked to the store to buy candy when Stebic left to go work out.
There have since been no cell phone or credit card activity, and a huge rift has developed between Craig Stebic and his wife's side of the family.
Craig Stebic has been named a person of interest in the case, and the two were in the midst of a divorce when she vanished. He has never been charged in the case.
Lisa Stebic's family has stopped holding public searches and public memorials on anniversaries like today. They say it's simply too painful.
There's still a $75,000 reward for information leading to the woman's location. Police ask anyone with info to call 815-267-7217.
