Lisa Stebic Case Back in the National Spotlight on Nancy Grace Show

Details of her disappearance are recounted and a tip line for more information provided; the family continues to offer a $75,000 reward.

Less than two months shy of the fourth anniversary of her disappearance, Lisa Stebic was briefly back in the national media spotlight Monday night.

Stebic, missing since April 30, 2007, was profiled on "Nancy Grace: America's Missing" on HLN, an affiliate cable channel of CNN.

While no new ground was broken on the short segment, the details of the Plainfield woman's disappearance were recounted, including a previously taped interview with her estranged husband, Craig Stebic.  The Plainfield tipline phone number -- 815-267-7217 -- was aired throughout the piece.

The case is also currently highlighted on Grace's Web page, http://www.cnn.com/CNN/Programs/nancy.grace/.

Stebic, 37 at the time she went missing, was in the process of divorcing her husband but continued to live in the same house with him and their two children, then 10 and 12.

Craig Stebic said he was working in the back yard at the time he heard her leave for an exercise class.

"Monday, she left home here, supposedly to work out," Craig Stebic said in an interview with WLS-TV (Channel 7), which was part of the Grace show. "As far as I know, somebody picked her up. When I got up (the next day) to go to work, she wasn't there."

Lisa Stebic's purse and cell phone were missing but her car remained parked in the driveway of the house, police said. Her credit cards and phone have not been used since her disappearance, police said.

At the time, Craig Stebic was named as a "person of interest" by the police but he was never charged with a crime. He continues to live in the family home.

On April 30, 2010 -- the third anniversary of the date Lisa Stebic went missing -- the Plainfield Police Department announced the case was being turned over to the Will-Grundy Major Crimes Task Force, made up of officers from more than 35 law enforcement agencies, the FBI and state police. Despite that, there have been no breaks in the case.

Stebic's family continues to maintain a Web site, www.findlisastebic.net, dedicated to locating the missing woman. There, family and friends post videos, photographs and news accounts. There's also a $75,000 reward for anyone who provides information that leads to discovering her whereabouts.

Lisa Stebic is described as 5-feet-2, weighing 120 pounds, with brown hair and brown eyes. She has two tattoos, a small rose on her ankle and a large butterfly on her lower back.

In addition to the Plainfield Police Department tip number, anyone with information can also contact Will County Crime Stoppers at 800-323-6734.
