Lily Peters, 10, was found dead near the Wisconsin trail

A 10-year-old girl was found dead a day after she disappeared near a hiking trail in Wisconsin while visiting a nearby family, police officers said.

Lily Peters was discovered Monday morning in a wooded area near a brewery parking lot near her aunt’s home in Chippewa Falls, according to police.

“The Chippewa County Coroner’s Office has now confirmed that this is the body of Iliana Peters,” Chippewa Falls Police Chief Matthew Kelm said at a news conference.

“At this point, we consider this a murder investigation.”

Lily, a fourth grader at Parkview Elementary School, went missing on Sunday. Her father reported her absence to police at 9 p.m

Police used dog teams and the girl’s bike was later found near the trail. She lives about four blocks from her aunt’s house.

Chippewa Falls police searched for her killer Monday night. Chief Kelm urged residents to “remain vigilant as there may be a risk to the public”.

The Chippewa County Sheriff set up a mobile command center in the Linseyball Brewery parking lot.
