CHICAGO (WBBM NEWSRADIO) -- A relative of Stacy Peterson is lending her support to the family of another missing woman.

Drew Peterson's sister-in-law, Norma Peterson, says she wants to make sure the disappearance of Kierra Coles gets the kind of attention her case deserves.

Coles was three months pregnant when she was last seen Oct. 2. She called  in sick to her job as a postal carrier.

Joseph Coles said Monday he thinks his daughter is still alive and urges anyone who's reluctant to talk to police about her disappearance to talk to him.

Coles said he's been looking in vacant homes in Chatham, near where Kierra lived.

Peterson sympathizes with Coles' family. She said she still thinks she catches glimpses of Stacy, only to find the person isn't her missing sister-in-law.

Drew Peterson was never charged with Stacy's death and her body has never been found. She disappeared in 2007.
