Success - Article sent! close

A search of a southwest suburban forest preserve that may be related to the disappearance of Stacy Peterson continued Tuesday but did not uncover anything of consequence, police said.

The FBI and Illinois State Police began a search of the 400-acre Hammel Woods Forest Preserve near Shorewood Monday, and they've released very little information since.

"I don't have anything new to share, but I can confirm the search will continue tomorrow," said Joan Hyde, FBI spokeswoman.

The search is part of an ongoing investigation, said Hyde, who declined to say if the search is related to the disappearance of Stacy Peterson, a mother of two missing since 2007.

Stacy Peterson is the fourth wife of convicted murderer Drew Peterson, a retired Bolingbrook police sergeant.

Drew Peterson was convicted in September of killing his third wife, Kathleen Savio, and awaits sentencing. He's been named a suspect in the disappearance of Stacy.

"Nothing found today. Search resumes tomorrow," said Monique Bond, a spokeswoman for the state police.
