With the media camp growing outside his Bolingbrook home, Sgt. Drew Peterson took his case to Geraldo Rivera Saturday. Off-camera, he insisted he had nothing to do with his wifes disappearance and complained to the Fox Network broadcaster that stress caused by media coverage has caused him to lose 25 pounds.
Missing Illinois Mom's Neighbor Reports Cop-Husband's Odd Behavior to Police
Saturday, November 10, 2007
BOLINGBROOK, Ill. A neighbor of an missing Illinois woman filed a police report against the woman's husband and recalled seeing the mother of two sitting at the end of her driveway in tears a week before she disappeared, she told FOX News.
Searchers have been passing out flyers in the disappearance of Stacy Peterson. The wife of a Bolingbrook police sergeant has been missing for two weeks now.
Another big search will be launched for the 23-year-old mother Monday.
Sgt. Drew Peterson did leave his home for a while to avoid the media, but he was back home Sunday night, and his family remained by his side.
Search Organization Seeking Donations; Family Says They Will Never Give Up
BOLINGBROOK, Ill. (CBS) ― The focus of the search for Stacy Peterson is now shifting from land to water; her family says no matter how long it takes, they will never give up.
After spending Sunday distributing flyers with Stacy's picture on them – the missing 23-year-old's stepsister and brother-in-law acknowledged that after two weeks, it is not likely Peterson is still alive.
"If she was out there and saw all this I'm pretty sure she'd come forward and say 'hey I'm OK,'" said Debby Forgue, Peterson's stepsister. "I know she would not want to see her family go through this."
Drew Peterson has made only brief appearances outside his home this weekend, where he is caring for the couple's two small children.
"Whatever might have happened to her, we will find justice and we will find Stacy as a family," said Matt Simmons, Stacy Peterson's brother-in-law.
The director of a national search firm that has been scouring fields and woods for Stacy Peterson said Sunday he is leaving Illinois to start searches for two missing teens in the South.
Tim Miller, founder and director of Texas EquuSearch, has been organizing daily searches for the mother of two who was last seen by her husband Oct. 28.
Miller said he spent Sunday reviewing last week's findings, including hundreds of aerial images. In the coming days, volunteers will scale back the ground search and concentrate on bodies of water before icy temperatures make those searches impossible, he said.
Bolingbrook police Sgt. Drew Peterson has maintained since the first day of his young wife's disappearance that she ran off with another man.
But an unnamed source told the Chicago Sun-Times that Peterson has been vague about his whereabouts Oct. 28, the day Stacy Peterson went missing, and his "timeline doesn't make sense."
Stacy Peterson, 23, was supposed to meet a family friend for a painting project that morning but never showed. Unsuccessful in their attempts to reach her, family reported her missing by 4 a.m. the following morning.
Volunteers and friends searching for a missing mother of two from suburban Chicago took the day off to regroup and raise awareness about Stacy Peterson.
Searchers were passing out fliers at area malls and grocery stores Sunday.
The volunteer group Texas EquuSearch spent the day reviewing more than 2,500 high-resolution images taken from an airplane as it flew over a 25-mile diameter around Bolingbrook.

Growing up, Stacy Peterson was on the move.
But no matter where her family went, trouble followed.
There was an absent mother. Alcoholism. Domestic violence. Troubled finances. Two sisters who died young. A brother in prison. More than 20 addresses, and with them, new schools.
Her younger sister, Cassandra Cales, 22, revisits the family's history bluntly.
"We had a - - - - - - up childhood," she said. "It was tough."
Out of this chaos emerged Stacy, quiet, maternal, organized, crafty, pretty, a good student who graduated early from Romeoville High School, a young woman forced to grow up too soon.
November 12, 2007 - Teams plan to focus the search for Stacy Peterson, 23, on bodies of water in the area. The Bolingbrook woman has been missing for more than two weeks.
Monday morning, volunteers met at a church near Peterson's home. They will be searching nearby bodies of water before they ice over.
Bonnie Johnson from Winfield does not know Stacy Peterson personally, but -- like dozens of volunteers -- feels the need to help out with the search.
"It's on my mind all the time, wherever I am. So I just know that if somebody I loved was gone, I would want as many people out there as I could gather," said Bonnie Johnson, volunteer.
Even on a Sunday, there will be no rest for those trying to find Stacy Peterson.
Two plainclothes officers with the Illinois State Police stopped by a number of homes here in Peterson's neighborhood to interview residents. Their every move, outside at least, was documented by the growing pack of camera crews which, as the days pass here, seem increasingly bent on chronicling every gust of wind in whats presumably become the most closely watched cul-de-sac in America.
Heres where I have to be careful, because television news is my life, and you wont go anywhere in this business if youre not aggressive. But I think it got to the point of overkill when I saw a reporter from a competing station interview a 9-year-old boy, who had just skateboarded to a buddys house, only to learn state police were inside the home of his playmate.
Search teams will focus on lakes and waterways around a Chicago suburb Monday for any trace of missing 23-year-old Stacy Peterson, who disappeared two weeks ago after she didn't show up at a friend's house.
Authorities named Bolingbrook, Ill., Police Sgt. Drew Peterson, who is married to Stacy, a suspect last week in his wife's disappearance. The body of Peterson's third ex-wife will be exhumed later this week to review her death.
Authorities are moving forward with their investigation into the disappearance of a missing Bolingbrook woman and could exhume the body of her husband's previous wife on Monday to take another look at her mysterious death.
Volunteers continued their search efforts at 10 a.m. Monday, hoping to find a clue to the disappearance of 23-year-old Stacy Peterson, who has been missing for more than two weeks.
Meantime, authorities have been planning to exhume the body of Kathleen Savio, the third wife of Stacy's husband, Drew Peterson, who has officially been named a suspect in Stacy's case.
Investigators are reviewing the death of Sgt. Drew Peterson's third wife, Kathleen Savio, who was found dead in her bathtub in 2004. NBC5's Kim Vatis reported Monday that investigators will exhume Savio's body to further the investigation.
A spokesman for the Will County State's Attorney's Office isn't saying when the exhumation will occur.
State's Attorney James Glasgow said evidence strongly suggests that someone killed Savio and tried to make it look like an accident in 2004. At the time, her drowning was called accidental.
Glasgow moved to exhume the body in the hopes of gathering more information in the case and on Friday a judge signed his petition to exhume the body.
