Bolingbrook designates Aug. 27 as Abduction Prevention Day

From staff reports

Almost 10 months to the day that Stacy Peterson disappeared, her friends and members of her family attended a Bolingbrook Village Board meeting last night, where a proclamation was read designating Aug. 27 as Abduction Prevention Day.

The proclamation stated in part  “…we will remember all persons still missing across the United States on Wednesday, Aug. 27, 2008, as the (CUE) Center For Missing Persons ‘On The Road To Remember’ 2008 Tour stops in our community to raise awareness of Bolingbrook missing residents Rachel Marie Mellon Skemp and Stacy Ann Peterson.”

Peterson, wife of former Bolingbrook Police Sergeant Drew Peterson, has been missing since Oct. 28, 2007.
Mellon Skemp has been missing since Jan. 31, 1996, when she disappeared from her Bolingbrook home at the age of 13.
