The Kendall County, Ill., coroner on Wednesday will analyze bones found during the search for the missing mom who disappeared April 30.
Local news outlets reported that friends of Stebic found the bones that police say likely are from an animal as they searched for her Tuesday in Silver Springs State Park in Kendall County.
The four bones were found almost exactly to the point indicated on a map of the 1,350-acre park a psychic hired by Stebic’s friend and coworkers had drawn, The Naperville Sun reported.
Some of Stebic’s co-workers at the Lincoln Elementary School cafeteria, acting on advice from a psychic, searched the park and another site Sunday and returned Tuesday to the park near Yorkville, The Herald News reported.
Kim Young, a coworker of Stebic’s, told The Naperville Sun the psychic contacted her with a “vision” and only wants to help. She said Stebic, her husband, Craig, and her children often came to the park.
The park was just one area searched. Stebic’s coworker Betty Stubner told a local CBS affiliate that with the investigation seemingly stalled, saarching a construction site mentioned by the psychic seemed like the right thing to do.
“We’ve tried everything else,” a Stubner told CBS2 in Chicago.” All the ladies pooled their information together and we thought a psychic wouldn’t hurt.”
They next plan to contact Sylvia Brown, a nationally known psychic of whom Stebic was a fan, CBS2 reported.
After the school workers found the bones, Kendall County sheriff’s deputies secured the area until a Plainfield investigator and evidence technician arrived.
Meanwhile, in an effort to raise money for The Lisa Stebic and Children’s Fund, the Plainfield Jaycees were to host a “Find Lisa” car wash on Saturday from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. EDT. On July 1, the Plainfield and Midwest Regional chapters of the Jaycees were to sponsor a “Find Lisa” pancake breakfast.
A $50,000 reward has been offered for information leading to Stebic’s return.
The missing mother of two last was seen April 30. Craig Stebic told police he was in the backyard when Lisa Stebic presumably was picked up by someone to go to exercise class. Her two children, 10 and 12, were not home at the time.
Police have not yet named a suspect or person of interest in the case and told FOXNews.com that Craig Stebic no longer is talking to police about the investigation into his wife’s disappearance.
