    Just throwing this out there: I'm not saying this is the case here, but sometimes people undergo "lifestyle changes". Hypothetically, if this is the case, it would likely be revealed via cellphone and computer records, if LE is checking those, which I'm sure they are.

    Hope they called Onstar anyway. I know there was at least one case when a car was traced without service being activated but cannot remember the name or specifics.
    Just my opinion, of course.

    So, what about carjackings in the area? Has there been a prevalence in these? I checked city-data, but nothing really stood out.

    Also, does anyone know what Nick's specific job title is (accountant, machinist...), and what exactly his work consisted of?

    I am local. Rarely do we hear about carjackings in the suburbs.

    He has a linkedin profile. It is super easy to find:

    It's going to be interesting to see how this case plays out. Whatever the end result, I hope Nick is safe and there is a resolution soon. So many families go for so long with no answers. I hope this doesn't turn out to be the case; not knowing is horrible. I'm anticipating a swift resolution, but I've thought that in past cases in which there are still no answers.

    Sending loving thoughts to his baby.

    Unlikely- VERY heavily traveled/ congested area. It is almost certain it would have been witnessed.

    What an interesting case.....

    Of course, anything could have happened to Mr. Steward...but I think we can reasonably narrow it down to one of how many things?

    1. He drove into a body of water
    2. He faced a medical emergency and went off the road or he is disoriented somewhere
    3. He committed suicide somewhere
    4. He fled his life due to stress or work related frustrations/family frustrations, etc
    5. He was involved in a single car accident
    6. He met foul play

    Add on....
    Sleuthing....from the perch.

    I really can't see a car jacking taking place a rush hour. So if he really did mean to go straight home, something else happened to him, IMO. Th casino is an obvious option, just by its proximity. Hope they can view tapes to see if his car was there. Does not sound likely he went off the road or into water, from what the local who did the recon said. JMO
    Just my opinion, of course.

    I think if it was a car jacking, the car would have been found by now dumped somewhere.

    My thought after looking at this map: https://mapsengine.google.com/map/u/...i3DEalaUGjs.en.

    is that if the 10:30 cell phone 'ping' is to be believed, I would think one possible scenario is that someone (whether an attacker or Nick himself) dropped off the car at he airport and left from there. Now, I would think that if Nick had flown somewhere, we'd know about it and people wouldn't be doing searches in the area. However, if I was putting myself in the mind of a criminal, the obvious places to ditch a car would be in a nearby body of water or maybe in a long-term parking lot where it wouldn't be looked at twice for a week or two. From O'Hare, the perps could then take public transit to wherever.

    I'm wondering if he had an iPhone, which to my knowledge is traceable if it is on. There have been many cases of criminals stealing iPhones and people tracking them down when they went to turn it back on (even if they switch sims).

    Just because things are portrayed as being 'good' in terms of his life, as some people pointed out, it doesn't mean that something wasn't going on unbeknownst to his family and friends. The fact that the last ping from his car was an I-Pass toll near a major airport and there is a cell phone ping 5 hours later from the same area would indicate that more than likely whatever happened happened there. It's odd because it doesn't seem to be a sketchy area at all.

    If you go by the 'he got spooked as a Dad' storyline, that doesn't make all that much sense. At a year of age, you've basically gotten past the one of the most challenging parts of being a parent and you start to really create a bigger bond with your child as they are more reactive to what you do or say.

    The 'hidden lifestyle' theory is always possible, no matter what the backstory is.

    A random attack/mugging/kidnapping you would think would be less successful in terms of covering up the evidence and general execution.

    The fact that we are 6 days in and don't have much more evidence to go on points more towards something premeditated that was carefully planned out.

    I'm curious whether he was Northbound on I-295 in the open tolling lane or in the exit only lane. Here is a photo showing the two. Notice the wall between the lanes.



    In order to exit on Tohey road, you have to be in the Old-school lanes as indicated by these signs:
