    After 3 Years, Search for Stebic Grows

    The investigation into the disappearance of the Plainfield woman is getting some extra attention.

    Plainfield police chose Friday -- which marks three years since anyone has heard from Lisa Stebic -- to announce that the Will/Grundy Major Crimes Task Force will join into the investigation.

    The force, launched last year, is comprised of 36 agencies from Will and Grundy counties.  Plainfield Police Chief William Doster said the MCTF will bring additional resources and a fresh perspective to the investigation.

    "The level of cooperation between Will County law enforcement agencies has always been phenomenal," said Will County State's Attorney James Glasgow in a written statement. "Rather than lose time fighting over turf in a major investigation, our local police chiefs are constantly communicating and always willing to share resources. Participation by the Major Crimes Task Force in the Stebic investigation is yet another example of that cooperation. This investigation remains a top priority, and the addition of the MCTF will strengthen that effort."

    Stebic, a mother of two, was last seen in Plainfield in April 2007. Authorities have named her husband, Craig, a "person of interest" in her disappearance. However, he hasn't been charged with any crime and has denied involvement.

    A reward continues to be offered in the case.  Anyone with information on Stebic's whereabouts should call the Plainfield Police Department at 815-267-7217.
