    Exclamation Disappearance of Crestwood College Student 'Out of Character,' Family Says

    Disappearance of Crestwood College Student 'Out of Character,' Family Says

    Crestwood police resumed their search on Sunday for 21-year-old James Sylvester IV whose been missing since March 27.

    Police focused their search at DeVry University’s Tinley Park campus looking for Sylvester’s beige-gold Honda Civic, while the missing man’s family spent Easter Sunday praying for his safe return.

    “PLEASE GIVE US AN EASTER MIRACLE PLEASE I BEG YOU,” his aunt, MaryJane Nowdomski, posted on her Facebook page.

    The well-liked college student described by his aunt as a “go getter” vanished last Wednesday evening after watching television with his mother. Sylvester had also initiated a breakup with his girlfriend a few weeks ago, but his aunt—who is James’s mother’s sister—said the two were still on speaking terms and thought the couple would eventually get back together.

    Police, family and friends are concerned Sylvester may try to harm himself because of activity on his computer and text messages sent to friends the night he disappeared, that said, “tell everyone I’m sorry.”

    Crestwood Man, 21, Vanishes

    CRESTWOOD, Ill. (CBS) – South suburban authorities continued searching Saturday for a 21-year-old Crestwood man who disappeared earlier this week in a despondent mood.

    A relative of James Sylvester says he was last seen at home Wednesday night, when he said he was leaving to visit a friend. However, that same friend later told the family he received an “alarming” message from Sylvester, the missing man’s cousin, Tricia Demuth, said.

    Sylvester had become despondent over a relationship, Demuth said. He drives a gold 2002 Honda Civic two-door with license number N253967, his family says.

    Sylvester’s last phone activity was tracked to 135th and Harlem, near a forest preserve area, Crestwood Detective Chris Soderlund said. On Saturday, Crestwood police did an aerial search via helicopter, with no luck.

    this is very disturbing, he was due to graduate in June, he and his g/friend were working on getting back together, I feel so sorry for this family. What could possibly have been going thru this young mans mind while watching t.v. with him mom, saying hes going to a friends and now missing? This is so sad. IMO

    Here I go: What if he did go to a friends house, that friend could have sent out those texts from Jims phone? IMO.

    I wonder what the "alarming" message was?
