    Which leads me to believe she been in the water for a few hours, maybe more.

    The body had apparently frozen in the water.

    Of course, my first thought goes to Stacy since they mentioned it was someone who had been reported missing possibly. With the body frozen and the water temp. at 33 degrees (as mentioned in the article above this post)...I would think it has been there for a little while, at least. The only good news is that evidence would be preserved in a frozen state.

    Unfortunately there are a few every winter downtown Chicago that either slip/fall or are put in the lake.

    I think it should remain as two threads for the moment as it could have nothing to do with Stacy.

    I have looked and cannot find another recent missing woman from the Chicago area. Anyone find anything?!

    Could be someone visiting Chicago..

    I guess it is possible...but there should be something in the media if a visitor goes missing in Chicago. She was obviously reported as being missing or they wouldn't have mentioned that tid bit.

    This is the comment I was talking about.

    As far as I can find...the only two missing from the area recently are Lisa Stebic and Stacy Peterson.

    SS, I beg to differ! Stacy and Lisa are the only two NATIONALLY PUBLICIZED recently missing women from Chicago.

    There are literally THOUSANDS of missing women in and around the Chicagoland area! You just don't hear about them on a national level...

    NCMA only has 3 missing from CHICAGO, but it's possible she could be VERY recent or a runaway...

    Well Dee...they aren't listed as missing "RECENTLY" if there are. I checked the Chicago PD website, the Illinois State Bureau of Investigation site, and a many others. I looked thru the newspaper and television sites.

    Feb 07 is the most recent you found. The others were from 2005 and 1995, yes?

    Since this was reported as being a "woman found unresponsive", it would suggest to me that she has not been missing all that long.
