Lisa Stebic age 38, mother of two missing since April 30, 2007
13244 Red Star Drive, Plainfield, Illinois, Will County

[Lisa Stebic Reward Poster from www.findlisastebic.com] -- "At the time of her disappearance, Lisa Stebic loved butterflies because it symbolized her transformation.

In the middle of a divorce, Stebic started a fitness regimen, lost weight and looked forward to a life as a single mom, family and friends say

She seemed to understand the saying, "What a caterpillar thinks is the end, a butterfly knows is just the beginning.

To celebrate a new start in her life, Lisa got a butterfly tattoo on her lower back with her children's names on each side. She already had a small rose on her ankle with her daughter's name and wanted a tattoo with her son's name."
