CHIPPEWA FALLS (OnFocus) – The Chippewa Falls Police Department is looking for Iliana (Lily) Peters, age 10, a 4th Grader at Parkview Elementary. On Sunday, April 24, Lily’s father contacted police at 9:00pm to advise that Lily had not returned home from a visit to her Aunt’s house in the 400 block of N Grove Street.

Officers learned that Lily was last seen by family members in the evening. She was supposed to be heading home to the 50 block of E Birch St. Officers and family checked the area and contacted family and friends, but she was not located.

After dark, officers learned that a bicycle believed to belong to Lily was located in the woods a short distance from her Aunt’s residence near the walking trail between the end of N Grove St and the Leinenkugel’s brewery parking lot.

K9 teams from the Chippewa County Sheriff’s Department and the Lake Hallie Police Department were called to search the area last night. A drone was also used to search the wooded area. Law Enforcement and Fire/EMS search teams searched this area and conducted door to door canvassing overnight. CFPD Investigators have and continue to follow up with friends and family of Lily. The Wisconsin Division of Criminal Investigation was contacted and, at this point, the incident does not meet the criteria for an Amber Alert.

Lily was last known to be wearing a purple 1/4 zip long sleeve shirt with black stretch pants and grey shoes.

As this is an active investigation, this is all of the information that can be provided at this time. Search and investigative efforts are ongoing. Anyone with information about Lily’s current whereabouts is asked to contact the Chippewa County Dispatch Center at 715-726-7701, option 1.
