The Stephenson County Sheriff's Department needs the public's help locating a 14-year-old from Freeport, Illinois who has been reported missing for the second time since September 22, 2023.

Have You Seen Lilly Duncan?

Whenever I see a report about a missing person in the Illinois area, my heart automatically hurts for the family and the panic and worry they must be feeling.

I don't know how I would function if one of my daughters went missing, and I cannot even fathom what it must be like to go through the terror multiple times.

On Wednesday, October 11, 2023, the Stephenson County Sheriff's Department issued a plea for public assistance in locating 14-year-old Lilliona "Lilly" Duncan from Freeport, Illinois.

Here are the details from the Stephenson County Sheriff's Office;

Lilliona "Lily" Duncan was last seen at a relative's home in the 3800 block of W. Yoder Rd in rural Freeport on 10-8-23 at approximately 9:00 p.m. Lily is a white female, 14 years of age, 5' 2" tall and weighs approx. 100 Ibs. She has shoulder length curly brown hair and a small piercing in her nose. She was last seen wearing a black hooded sweatshirt, blue jeans with holes, with chains over the holes, and white shoes.

Lily's destination and anyone whom she may be with is unknown. reports that this is actually the second time Lilly Duncan has been reported missing since September 22, 2023, but thankfully, she was found safe later that day.

As I write this, the Stephenson County Sheriff's Office has not issued an update saying Lilly has been located safely for the second time, but let's hope and pray that happens today too!

If you have any information about Lilly Duncan's whereabouts, please contact the Stephenson County Sheriff IMMEDIATELY at 815-235-8252.
