Mezera was last seen by her father around 4:30 p.m. on Saturday.  Mezera's father reported her missing early Monday morning after he grew concerned when Lisa wasn't home and he heard a woman's body was found at the cemetery.

The cemetery was closed while the Kenosha County Sheriff’s Department investigated the crime scene.
