The FBI and Wausau Police are checking out some disturbing new details surrounding the 2004 disappearance of a teenager who eventually turned up in Mexico and now wants to return to the U.S. with her children. Connie McCallister, who is now 25-years-old, told police this week that she went to a party in Milwaukee or Chicago in 2004 with her ex-boyfriend, Freddie Ruiz. She believed she was drugged and kidnapped because the next thing she knew, she was in Mexico.
Wausau Police said McCallister never mentioned anything about an abduction when they first talked in September. At that time, McCallister said she had three children with another man who she married in Mexico — and that she wanted to return to the U.S. with the kids. Wausau Police said they’d provide the new information to the FBI, and keep trying to bring McCallister home as she wishes. If she returns to Wausau, investigators have said that they’ll question her about why she left with Ruiz. At the time, she told her mother she and Ruiz were fine — but did not say where they were.
