KIRAN CHETRY, CNN ANCHOR: Well, new this morning. There are new details in the mysterious disappearance of a woman in the Chicago area and also new questions for her police officer husband. The family of 23-year-old Stacey Peterson reported her missing on Sunday. Her aunt says that Stacey had told her that her husband, Drew, she wanted a divorce just two days before she disappeared. He also says Stacy told her she was afraid of her husband and he tracked her every move with GPS in her cell phone. Police searched the Peterson's home, as well as their two cars on Thursday. Drew Peterson is a 29-year veteran of the Bowling Brook Illinois Police Department. He says that Stacy is fine and she left him for another man.
Her family says she would never leave her 2 and 4-year-old children behind and not call them. They're fearing the worst. Prosecutors are now looking at the death of Drew Peterson's former wife. She was found dead in a bathtub three years ago. Back then, the police said it was accidental.
