Authorities are now investigating the possibility that a central Wisconsin teenager may have been drugged and kidnapped when she disappeared nine years ago. The woman is working with authorities in an effort to return home.
16-year-old Connie McCallister disappeared in 2004, shortly after moving from her hometown of Athens to nearby Wausau. She told family members she was going to a party in Milwaukee with her 22-year-old boyfriend. She never returned.
Nine years later, in September, a missionary contacted the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children and told them McCallister was living in Mexico with a new husband and three children, and wanted to come home. The Wausau Police Department contacted McCallister, now 26 years old, confirmed it was her, and closed the case, believing she had fled voluntarily.
Now, authorities are investigating the possibility that the central Wisconsin teenager was drugged and kidnapped, based on a new conversation with McCallister. According to a Wausau Police Department news release: “Connie told officers that in 2004 she left Wausau voluntarily... and ended up at party somewhere in the Milwaukee/Chicago area. She said while she was at the party she thinks someone may have drugged her, as the next day she woke up in Mexico.”
