Officials will not comment on new developments in the case of a missing Plainfield woman.On April 30, 2009, Lisa Stebic will have been missing for two years. Her husband, Craig Stebic, has been named a person of interest in the missing person's case.

On Thursday, Lisa's family told ABC7 they hope new developments- the details of which officials will not release- will help bring her home.

"What's important to learn from this is a continuing investigation, not a cold case. If they get a lead, if they get a tip, they will follow up on it," said Melanie Greenberg, Lisa Stebic family spokesperson.

Greenberg is Lisa's cousin. She said she received a phone call from a spokesperson with the Will County State's Attorney's Office who said investigators may have learned more about what happened the day Lisa, 38, disappeared.

The Will County State's Attorney's Office would not comment on the specifics of the developments.

"It's still an active investigation. Law enforcement continues to pursue leads. There have been developments that have occurred. They are NOT going to cause a resolve in the case, but give a clearer picture of what happened to Lisa," said Charles Pelkie, spokesman, Will County State's Attorney's Office.

During the summer of 2007, hundreds of volunteers helped police search for Lisa, but they found no clues. Investigators remain suspicious of her husband, Craig, because the couple was in the process of divorcing when Lisa vanished. He has been named a person of interest, but has not been charged in the case.

Plainfield Police refused to comment on camera about their ongoing investigation, but according to published reports, they have not received any new tips in some time.

Meanwhile, Craig Stebic's attorney says his client continues to deny any wrongdoing or involvement with his wife's disappearance.

"It's somewhat reassuring this time that whatever has come to authorities from Will Co.'s there isn't a perception that any tips points toward Craig? Craig and the children are holding up," said Dion Davi, Craig Stebic attorney.

Lisa's family has offered a $75,000 reward for information on her whereabouts. They continue to post updates on findlisastebic.com. The family also plans to have a booth at the Spring Festival in Plainfield to continue to create awareness.
