A publicist for the former Illinois police sergeant suspected in the disappearance of his wife says the ex-officer is engaged to be married again. Publicist Glenn Selig says 54-year-old Drew Peterson proposed within the last week after dating the woman for about four months.

Selig says the woman is 23 - the same age as Stacy Peterson when she disappeared in October 2007.

Illinois state police call Peterson a suspect in the disappearance of his wife but no charges have been filed against the former officer from the Chicago suburb of Bolingbrook

Peterson claims his wife left him for another man.

Selig wouldn't give any details about Peterson's new fiance and Peterson wouldn't comment.
