    Search set for Stacy and Lisa

    Search set for Stacy and Lisa

    Volunteers will comb new territory Saturday for any trace of two missing local women.

    It has been more than a month since Bolingbrook mother Stacy Peterson vanished, and seven months since Plainfield mom Lisa Stebic disappeared.

    Volunteers are asked to meet at 9 a.m. Saturday at Westbrook Christian Church, 1175 Lily Cache Lane in Bolingbrook. State police will point them to new search areas, planners say.
    Pam Bosco, a spokeswoman for Stacy's family, said they are planning to hold a candlelight vigil outside the Peterson house at 4 p.m. Saturday.

    "We're not just looking for Stacy," Bosco said, mentioning Stebic.

    "Volunteers will begin searching in the Bolingbrook area at 9 a.m. Saturday then will reconvene in front of the home at 6 Pheasant Chase Court, according to the family's Web site, findstacypeterson.com.

    Sharon Bychowski, next-door neighbor of the Peterson family, has taken out a block party permit with the village of Bolingbrook to conduct the event in the street, according to the village clerk’s office.

    The Web site dedicated to finding Stacy Peterson is asking volunteers to meet at Westbrook Christian Church at 9 a.m., 1175 Lily Cache Lane, to aid in search efforts, and also to attend the vigil."

    Dress warm you guys!!!

    "One to three inches of snow is predicted to fall in the Chicago area Saturday, according to the National Weather Service."

    Why is it that when a custodial parent fails to provide for a child it is called neglect and is a criminal matter. But when a non custodial parent fails to provide it is called failure to support and is a civil matter?

    THE CANDLELIGHT VIGIL IS GOING FORWARD, HOWEVER, IF YOU NEED TO TRAVEL TO IT, THE FAMILY IS ADVISING PEOPLE *NOT* TO TRAVEL DUE TO HAZARDOUS WEATHER AND DRIVING CONDITIONS. IF YOU ARE LOCAL AND CAN GET THERE, THAT'S GREAT.

    Snow snarls search for missing Chicago-area woman

    The people searching for any signs of Stacy Peterson are through for the day. Today's search for the 23-year-old woman who went missing in October was called off after about four hours due to snow and sleet in the Chicago area.

    Before that, more than 200 people scoured areas outside Romeoville today, looking for any sign of the missing woman.

    Family and friends of four missing suburban residents gathered to hand out fliers informing people of their missing loved ones.

    Originally, the families of Stacy Peterson, Lisa Stebic, Bradley Olsen and John Spira planned to search for any trace of Spira.

    He last was seen near North Avenue and Country Farm Road in West Chicago on Feb. 23.

    However, the recent snow canceled the search.

    “I have a lot of hope that we’ll find him,” Spira’s sister Stephanie McNeil said. “I don’t have a lot of hope that we’ll find him alive.”

    Instead, families and friends of the four pamphleted the area with information about the four and other missing people.

    Volunteers who joined Saturday's effort included relatives of missing persons Stacey Peterson, Lisa Stebic and Bradley Olsen, who all disappeared this year.

    The search for Stacy Peterson is set to resume Sunday morning. They'll be using sonar to search through bodies of water and volunteers to search on land. If you'd like to help out show up at the Bolingbrook Aquatic Center, 200 S. Lindsey Lane, at 9 a.m.
    /snip

    Yes they are back full force and today they are supposedly using sonar devices to continue the water searches as well as the land searches.

    I just have a feeling it won't be long now until Cass is able to bring Stacy home to rest in peace.

    I am honestly saying my prayers that within the next few days, Stacy will find her way home.

    I'll pray too. I had no idea they'd keep searching at this point. I'm impressed.

    FWIW, Sandra Bellinger (of Laci Peterson case fame) predicted Stacy would be found in April. Let's pray she's right.

    IIRC, she thinks she's at the Dresden Locke, under-water.

    I'm not sure which thread to post this to, but after debating I feel this is the right one.

    I have paste and copied a portion of a search teams maunevers in searching for a body in cold water temperatures. This team is located in another state, but I immediately thought of Stacy while reading it. I asked for permission to post it here and received it.

    For me, it helped on how a body "reacts" in a river, lake, etc. I think the area that Stacy is beleived to be in is also considered a "cold water" river.

    From the article;
    Uhler’s search includes three main functions: attaching a boat to a high-line rope system and dropping a camera into the water around the falls and near the footbridge; sending two teams along the shoreline to search debris piles with probes; and searching the river’s eddies, the outer corners where water becomes slow-moving.
    “There is clearly a good reason to believe we could locate a person if they were a victim of the river,” he said. “The river is very predictable.”
    When a person falls into a cold-water current like the Otter Creek in February, the process is always the same, Uhler explained. A body will descend through three phases, known as the top, middle and bottom load. If the person is conscious, he will remain in the top load longer as he fights the current. If he is unconscious, or cannot beat the current, he will sink to the middle load and finally the bottom.
    “If there’s a lot of debris in the river a person’s clothes can become ensnared in the debris,” Uhler said.
    In warmer water, a body would become more buoyant, rise to the surface and begin moving on the current. But in the Otter Creek’s cold water, it’s unlikely a body would travel far from where it entered the river, Uhler explained.
    “In a matter of one to two minutes he could have gone from top load to bottom load, especially with the current,” he said. “With the cold water conditions we have now, once a person becomes trapped in a certain area in the river, they would probably stay there for a while.”

    But do they mention how they determine cold vs warm? Stacy went missing in Oct. and the weather was pretty warm for Oct. last year.
