Lisa Stebic1

Description of Lisa Stebic:

  • Lisa, 37, is 5′ 2″ tall
  • 120 pounds
  • brown hair
  • hazel eyes
  • She has two visible tattoos, a small rose on her ankle
    and a large butterfly on her lower back.

Monday will mark one week since the 37-year-old mother of two vanished from lisa stebicher home. Her husband told investigators she left to work out with a partner she met on-line and never came back. Those who know Stebic say that’s out of character.

“There is no way that she would ever leave her children–never, ever,” said Greenberg.

No one can understand what could have happened to Stebic. She is a devoted mother, the job that she had as a lunch lady, she had, so she could always be home for her children when they got home from school.

One one red flag that goes off is that Lisa Stebic and her husband were living together while going through the final stages of their divorce. Hmm.

Stebic and her spouse were living together while divorcing. He has told police he does not believe she would have left on her own. Her sisters and parents don’t think so either. Sunday they joined the group searching remote fields for any sign of her. (CBS Chicago 2)

The family has put up a web site in hopes of gaining further information and getting the word out to help find Lisa Stebic …

Help this family find Lisa Stebic.

Three year old British toddler, Madeleine McCann, disappeared from the resort that her Madeleine McCann 2family was staying in Praia da Luz, Portugal. Police have initially speculated that she was abducted by a pedophile. Time is of the essence and the clock is running to save this child from a sexual predator.

Police searching for a British toddler abducted during a family holiday in Portugal, fear she has been taken by a paedophile.

Pedophile seized British toddler, say Portuguese police

Police searching for a British toddler abducted while on holiday in Portugal fear she has been snatched by a pedophile.

Madeleine vanished between 9pm and 10pm on Thursday night from her room at a holiday complex in Praia da Luz, a fishing village on the Algarve, as she slept between her twin brother and sister, aged two. (Sydney Morning Herald)

Police believe that Madeleine is still alive and being held 2-3 miles from where she was abducted.

Madeleine was taken from the ground-floor apartment at the Mark Warner Ocean Club holiday village between 9:30pm and 10pm. Mrs McCann found that the outside shutter and window to Madeleine’s room had been opened and her daughter was missing shortly before 10pm local time.

Detectives searching for Madeleine have said they are convinced the child is still alive, that they know the “prime suspect” and that she is being held close to the resort. Police also said they had an artist’s impression of the suspect, which they were not releasing for fear of endangering Madeleine’s life. (The Scotsman)

There are numerous media reports of the police drawing heavy criticism for the manner in how this case was initially handled.

But there were recriminations in the Portugese media over the police’s handling of the investigation in the first few hours after Madeleine’s disappearance.

The Portugese daily newspaper, Diario de Noticias, claimed that border police were not told that a child had been kidnapped until about midday on Friday, more than 12 hours after Madeleine was reported missing.

As a member of the EU, Portugal has no border controls with Spain, and motorists can cross from one country to the other unchecked.

The newspaper claimed that proper procedure would have been for Portugal’s Judicial Police – the local equivalent of CID – to have tipped off the country’s Borders and Aliens Service as soon as they knew that a child had been kidnapped.

Another paper, Correio de Manha, said the main border crossing from the Portuguese Algarve to Spain had no special controls in place whatsoever until Saturday afternoon. (NZ Herald)

UPDATE II: UK girl’s parents pray for her return

Gerry and Kate McCann attended church in the Praia da Luz holiday village, where their daughter Madeleine disappeared on Thursday night from the family’s villa apartment.

“Please continue to pray for Madeleine,” Kate McCann said as she and her husband left the church in a statement to reporters waiting outside.

“From today’s service the thing we are going to take from this is strength and courage and hope, we continue to hope for the best possible outcome from this for us and for Madeleine,” her husband added.

UPDATE III: Balding man seen dragging blonde girl towards marina

Portuguese police investigating the abduction of Madeleine McCann are hunting for a balding man who is believed to have been seen dragging a girl to a marina in a town close to where she disappeared.

Detectives have not identified the man but have said that he is a suspect in the kidnapping of Madeleine from a holiday apartment on the Algarve on Thursday night

A police artist’s impression of a balding man who was seen with a blonde girl similar to Madeleine shows just the back of his head. He is described as being white, 5ft 11in and is understood to have been wearing white trousers. The man is believed to have been seen dragging the girl on a road leading to a marina in the town of Lagos, about 5 miles (8km) from Praia da Luz. Another witness is reported to have seen a girl struggling in the back of a car on a road leading from Praia da Luz. (Times on Line)

Lewis James Wilczek, 21, had been missing since April 29, 2007. He was supposed to Lewis James Wilczekmeet someone in St. Cloud, MN but never showed. His pickup truck was found Wednesday. The police arrested a man who was driving it and claimed to be Wilczek. Now police have found the remains in a shallow grave in Mille Lacs County, MN. The remains are being taken to the medical examiners office; however, they are believed to be that of Lewis James Wilczek.

Police Chief Michael Pender said in a statement that the remains were found Saturday and taken to the Anoka County medical examiner’s office for an autopsy to determine the cause of death and for positive identification.

Lewis James Wilczek, 21, disappeared April 29 when he was supposed to meet someone in St. Cloud. His family told police his absence was out of character.

Hull has been charged in numerous counties for giving false information to police, providing false information on a driver’s license application and check forgery, according to public records.

Searchers Look for Missing People in Greensburg, KS after Tornado Wipes out Town

Search and rescue workers continue to look for missing persons and possible survivors Greensburg_tornado_damagein Greensburg, KS after severe weather and tornadoes desimated the town on Friday and over the weekend. At least 8 people have died in the Greensburg area from the violent weather; however, authorities are still optimistic that they will find survivors and continue to call it a “search and rescue” mission.

GREENSBURG, Kan. (AP) — Searchers went back to work Sunday looking for anyone who might have been trapped since a tornado wiped most of this south-central Kansas town off the map. “At this point, it’s still a search and rescue mission,” Kansas state trooper Ronald Knoefel said. “We don’t want to give up hope.”

Maj. Gen. Tod Bunting, the state’s adjutant general, said officials did not know how many people are missing.

“A lot of people have gone to other places and it’s difficult to track them down,” he said.

At least 10 people were known dead from weekend storms. Eight of them were in the Greensburg area and two others died elsewhere in Kansas – one during the Friday night storms that hammered Greensburg and one in a second round of storms late Saturday, state officials said.

The storms in Kansas were parts of a weekend of violent weather, with tornadoes also dashing across other parts of the Plains states late Saturday. And on Sunday, the National Weather Service posted a new tornado warning for south-central Kansas, saying a funnel cloud was spotted near Corwin, 65 miles southeast of Greensburg.

The Greensburg, KS area has just been destroyed as almost every thing in the town was destroyed. The town has literally been wiped off the map. Check out the video of the damage and devastation caused by the tornado.

Hewitt estimated 95 percent of the town of 1,500 was destroyed and predicted rescue efforts could take days as survivors could be trapped in basements and under rubble.

“This is one of the most devastating tornadoes we have had in Kansas,” said U.S. Rep. Jerry Moran.

At a shelter in neighboring Haviland, Cheryll Behm said her home in Greensburg is probably repairable, unlike the rest of the town.

“I am concerned Greensburg never will be built,” said Behm, a nurse’s aide at the Greensburg hospital. “There is no place to go back to work to. All of Main Street is gone.”
