BOLINGBROOK, Illinois (CNN) -- Police are using tracking dogs, airplanes, infrared sensors and volunteers on foot Tuesday to look for a young mother who disappeared nine days ago, leaving her 4- and 2-year-old children behind.
Stacy Peterson, 23, has been missing from her suburban Chicago home since October 28.
1 of 2 Friends and relatives of Stacy Peterson, 23, say her disappearance is suspicious.
Her husband of four years, Bolingbrook police Sgt. Drew Peterson, 53, reportedly has told police his wife said she was leaving him for another man, and police are not treating the disappearance as a criminal investigation.
But the woman's aunt, Candace Aikin, of El Monte, California, said Stacy Peterson confided in her that there were problems during a visit to the Peterson home in suburban Chicago last month.
"She said that she was afraid because he was following her around 24/7, even inside the house," Aikin said. "He was very obsessed and stalking her, even inside her house.
"She was very, very full of stress and just not happy in her marriage at all," Aikin said.

What's even more weird is her young daughter's name...
(go to number 6)
what is the child’s name?.......
Child’s name is Lacy.....how uncanny is THAT?
When she first went missing and the story was being discussed I though “wow, what a shocking similarity in the names.”.
But local prosecutors are taking another look at the 2004 death of his third wife, Kathleen Savio, who drowned in a bathtub after the couple had divorced.
Savios sister, Sue Doman, said Savio expressed fear of Drew Peterson.
She told me all the time, Hes gonna kill me. Its gonna look like an accident, Doman said.
She was 19 and he was 49 when they got married eh?
click on post 3 link....spooky
It was ruled an accidental bathtub drowning....but now that this has happened they are looking into it.
According to the headline, the cop has had four wives disappear. Odd.
WHO dies ‘accidentally’ in a BATHTUB??? ...druggies aside.. awww, come on!... Really...
She described her married life as "one long surveillance with me as the subject."
I'll point out that while she may or may not have decided to leave him to be with another man, it is unlikely that she would have left without the children - especially children that age.
I agree something sounds soooooooooo wrong in the third wife's death and the fouth wife's disappearance.
I agree, if she was complaining to friends about his controlling nature and things like that, she would have never left her children behind.
Yeah. What’s a 19 year old doing running around with a 49 year old—or at least one that isn’t rich? Strange.
If I was that girl’s father I’d have told her no way you are you marrying some 49 year old pervert. Those type of realationships do not end well. I pray for her and for her kids. But, I do expect the worst.
Hum.. I read years ago that if someone’s head is suddenly submerged in a bathtub by pulling upwards on their feet, there is frequently a “startle” response that causes them to breath in.
A teenage girl with daddy issues who is easily impressed by a badge and an air of authority.
And I find it amazing how many small-town cops seem to have lots more financial resources that their job description would indicate.
The Trib photo show indicates that he bought her a muscle car as a present.
Come on, my Great Grandmother was 16 when she got married to her husband. He was 42. They had 10 kids together, that was his second marriage (first lady died) and they had 10 together as well. (Of course that was waaaaaaaaaaaaay back then. I remember my Great Grandmothers (both of them, they were both over 100 when they died too).
Daddy issues. Yes, that's probably right. I knew one girl that used to run around with much, much older men when she was young--16, 17. She had serious issues, including dad. Too bad. Nice girl.
You're probably right.
Mystery Murder Ping List.
I know many on your ANS list are from the old Lacy Peterson and other Murder Mystery Cases.
Ping if you please.
Yeah, different back then. Heck, it might have even been arranged.
So he’s a 49 year old going through a middle age crisis. Oh God I feel for this women.
Sure, that’s what they said when my 34th wife disappeared on a rock climbing holiday.........pure speculation!
Here is an earlier thread with some observations and links you might find useful:
Could it be that she named the baby after that Lacy Peterson? She was born after all that, right?
Very spooky indeed.
Pinged by request - this is a newer thread on Stacy Peterson topic.
What's with all these Petersons?
I’d say neither were too bright to begin with.
On the afternoon of 18 December 1914 Margaret Lloyd had visited her solicitor in Islington and made a will in favour of her husband. Later that evening 'John Lloyd' told the owner of the house that he was going out to buy some tomatoes for his wife's supper whilst she took a bath.
... tomatoes in the UK in December 1914? Hothouses?
Nice catch of an interesting detail, to which I can only respond “dunno.”
My Yorkie does this all the time, then he stares at me...very annoying...
She looks more like the Runaway Bride in that photo...
While it’s a small town, it’s only about 35 or 40 minutes from Chicago.
Where does it say that?
There are trailer parks 30 miles from midtown Manhattan.
And in those trailer park areas, a guy who has a steady government job and owns a ranch home and a new truck is a hot property to the local women.
Even though those same women live a 45 minute bus ride away from the NYC nightlife.

Did she marry a cop?
This a local story. The only reason we are hearing about it is because no celebrities have been to jail, gotten arrested, or had their kids taken away this week and the ambulance chasing media is short on material. They got tons of mileage out of Lacy Peterson so why not refry the same pot of beans?
Someone wake me when we get back to important issues.
Naw, wasn’t arranged. It was Kentucky. They didn’t arrange things, they just needed kids to work the farms. haha.
In love? What would they possibly have in common? With credit to Nick Griffin, what would they talk about, whether her favorite cereal has marshmallows in it?
Nope, didn’t disappear either. He was a farmer, and apparently was pretty wealthy. :) (I think that fits the previous description someone made, about young girls marrying rich guys).
Voicing disaproval? Uh, I guess you haven't heard. For the last six months or so at FR, we celebrate > 20 year age discrepancies.
My wife is from a small town. Her mom worked some years as a police dispatcher. They were all told to vote Democrat every election. No need to pretend in a small town. Not the point I want to make though.
To my larger point. One of the cops in the small town literally stalked my ex-wife for months trying to get her to go out with him, meet him somewhere and on and on. She was a young girl working at McDonalds at the time. Years latter when my wife told her mom about the cop and what he had done, she (her mom) just couldn't believe it. After all, in her wordds "this officer was the nicest, most honest policeman on their entire force. Just no way he could have done this."
Well believe it, many, if not most, cops are nothing more than stalkers with a badge and cover of authority for their actions.
