Kelm did say that officers executed a search warrant on an address along the 400 block of North Grove Street. That block is where Lily had gone to visit her aunt Sunday, when she went missing. But Kelm did not say whether that search yielded anything of value.

What Kelm did say was the suspect was known to Lily and there is no longer any danger to the public.

He thanked the community for the more than 200 tips that were provided to law enforcement. He called the trips “critical” to the investigation.

The tip line – 1-800-263-5906 – will remain open until noon Wednesday, Kelm said.

More than 70 officers from nearly 20 agencies have assisted with the investigation, including the FBI, the Wisconsin Department of Justice and multiple local police and sheriffs’ departments, Kelm said.

He also referenced the purple ribbons that have sprung up around Chippewa Falls as a show of support for Lily’s family.

“Driving through town, we can see the purple ribbons and honestly I would expect nothing less from the Chippewa Falls Community,” he said.
