    IL - Mateusz 'Matt' Rybarski, 21, DuPage County, 18 Feb 2013

    http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/l...,5034616.story

    Story indicates his vehicle and backpack were found near water and he had been battling depression. Yikes!

    The article states his car and back pack were found near Salt Creek in unincorporated Addison. I'm not sure exactly what area's of Addison are unincorporated, but here is a map of an intersection near Salt Creek.

    The only way to get a greyhound or train would be downtown, so unless he called a Cab, hitched or had someone pick him up, I think he is still in the area his car was found.

    I wonder if DuP' used tracking dogs?

    He's 5'11" and a gymnast? That seems kind of tall for a gymnast, but ok.
    I work at a university and our student-athletes' grades are watched very closely throughout the semester. They're under a lot of pressure to keep good grades & as well as perform well at sports. Their instructors have to submit their current grades a minimum of three times during the semester. If they're on scholarship to play sports, but have to maintain a certain GPA to play on the team, I'm sure it can be overwhelming if there is/are a class(es) they're struggling with that semester.

    I hope he will realize that even if things aren't going so great right now, they do get better. Please come home, Matt.


    (Mateusz is the Polish equivalent of Matthew. I assume Matt is Polish-American or Polish. This Polish-American girl hopes he comes home safely.)

    Matt's profile on the UIC Athletics page:
    http://www.uicflames.com/sports/m-gy...mateusz00.html

    Definitely is a gymnast.

    Also, bio-engineering major---that's a really demanding discipline.

    Not seeing or hearing anything.

    I wish they would release info on why it is believed he was trying to get to Montana.

    From the above NamUs link:

    He left home in his dad's car. Unoccupied car was located three days later in same city. Extensive ground, air and water searches did not locate subject. Subject's cell phone was turned off or had dead battery. No trackable financial transactions. He also searched the Internet for train and bus schedules.

    Still praying for Matt's safe return.

    I think Mateusz may have been found deceased. His namus profile is gone and I found this:

    It is with unimaginable sadness that USA Gymnastics shares the passing of former Level 9 Junior National Team Member Mateusz Rybarski, who was a gymnast at the University of Illinois-Chicago. Our thoughts and prayers are with Mateusz and his family. Details for services are pending, but expected for this weekend.

    sadly it appears so - I did a quick FB search and there was an "RIP Matt Rybarski" posted 3rd April.
    Justice for Jennifer


    Rest in peace Danielle and Tammy
