    The search continues for Downers Grove resident William Foley, who was reported missing Wednesday evening after he failed to return home from work.

    As of Sunday night, there have been no signs of Foley, according to a post by family members on the Facebook page "Help Find Bill Foley."

    "The search continues throughout the weekend and we are hopeful that he will be safely returned to our family," the post states. "Please continue to spread the word and also to pray for Bill. Where ever he is, we pray that he is unharmed and able to come home to us."

    Foley was last seen around 1 p.m. Wednesday at his place of employment in Lombard, police said.

    He is 5-foot-7, 195 pounds, with brownish-gray hair and blue eyes, and is believed to be driving a white 1997 Ford Escort with Illinois license plate 9985772, police said.

    Anyone with information on Foley's whereabouts is asked to contact the Downers Grove Police Department at 630 434-5600 or 911 to verify his well being.

    I really wish there was a little more information on Bill's disappearance. Was he having any family problems, depressed at all?

    Was the 1pm last time seen the end of his shift or did he leave for lunch and not return?

    Has the family traveled his usual route to and from work?

    I'm in the area so will definately keep an eye out.

    Here is another article that says, "Foley, 55, was last seen around 1 p.m. on Feb. 6, when he was leaving his job in Lombard, police said. His family reported him missing when he didn't return home."

    There are a few additional details in the article, too.

    If I've looked at a map right, that cell phone ping is south of both his job and his home?

    It's about 5 miles or 15 minutes between Downers Grove and Lombard. (They are right next to each other.)

    Then it's about another 27 miles and 33 minutes or so to get to Shorewood.

    Depending on where his job is in Lombard, it's likely he took I-355 south to I-55 South and lost the cell phone just before the exit to I-80.

    I take it there is no GPS in the car and he is not using an I-Pass to pay for tolls.


    Praying he is found safely soon, or if he is safe and left willingly, he gives his family the courtesy of a phone call letting them know he is ok and left willingly. His family is clearly very worried about him and they deserve at least a phone call.

    Oh wow, this isn't what I expected. I really thought he would be found safe. Prayers said for Bill's family and all who knew him.

    No temptation has overtaken you except what is common to mankind. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can endure it. - 1 Corinthians 10:13 (NIV)

    We are all one poor choice from being a subject on this forum. Think twice.

    I wonder what he was doing in Pope County (about 6 hours from Downers Grove)? This report says he was found in his car near Dixon Springs Agricultural Center and foul play is not suspected. Previous articles didn't lead me to believe he was suicidal but I guess you never know.

    RIP Bill
