Missing Wis. Teen Found Nearly 10 Years Later in Mexico

Was taken against her will and now has three children


A Wisconsin woman who went missing more than nine years ago has been found living in Mexico with her three children.

Connie McCallister, 26, was found after a church missionary in Mexico reported seeing her to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children three months ago, according to the Wausau Daily Herald.

"We have confirmed, through conversations on Skype, that this is really Connie, and she did ask for help in getting home," Wausau Police Capt. Greg Hagenbucher told the newspaper. "But she won't come back without her children."

McCallister, who vanished in August 2004 at age 16, said she was drugged and taken to Mexico against her will by her then-boyfriend, her aunt Florence Volzka told the Associated Press.

  1. I call bullshit. How do you escape an abductor in Mexico and not think to run to a US consulate for help?

    1. In Mexico, McCallister managed to escape her abductor years ago, but without knowledge of the Spanish language, she was unable to contact her family in the U.S., according to the International Business Times.

      1. If its anything like my wisconsin relatives it Sounds more like, broke up in a nasty fashion with the boyfriend from the Tesla cover band with dreams of owning a dope ranch in mexico and she’s throwing him under the bus to be able to live back at home in ma’s duplex.

      2. No one in Mexico speaks English, and it’s impossible to live in Mexico that long and pick up even basic Spanish.

  2. She’s from Wisconsin and she moved to Mexico just as it became the fattest country in the world. Why would she want to leave?
