Woman considered missing almost 10 years back in central Wisconsin

Wausau Police officials say a central Wisconsin woman, who was at one time considered missing for close to 10 years, is now back in the state.

Connie McCallister, 25, was last seen in 2004 when she was just 16. Officials say she had been living in Mexico since her disappearance. McCallister was a student at Athens High School at the time.

Police Chief Jeff Hardel tells Newsline 9 McCallister has been back in the country for some time and initially refused to speak with the department.

Hardel says eventually the Department of Criminal Investigation did interview McCallister.

Officials say the DCI has turned over that part of the investigation to the Wausau Police Department. Hardel says he will be reviewing that report and will release what he can some time next week.

Newsline 9 has tried to contact McCallister, but has not heard back from her or from members of her family.

Members of her family originally told Newsline 9 McCallister was taken against her will to Mexico, but police claim that wasn't the case.

McCallister has three children. Police say they are back in the United States as well.
