    I used to live in the area, and yes it is unbelievably congested- making the liklihood of him going off-road in some type of accident unseen by others very, very unlikely.

    A couple questions:
    1) What was the call to his employer about at 5:30? Who is his employer?
    2) Was the call home to the wife a normal occurrence?
    3) Surveillance video from gas stations near the ping?
    4) It seems strange to me that someone would exit the expressway at that time of day to purchase smokes. As stated above, it is unbelievably congested, and getting back on can add 30 minutes to an already long commute. I just don't see it.
    5) Any trouble at home?
    6) Any legal troubles?

    ETA: OK, number 4 isn't a question. So sue me!

    According to his LinkedIn profile, his employer is MC Machinery.

    Lake Villa really isn't far from Chicago - the long commute time is mainly due to horrible traffic. I'm not terribly far from there and they would definitely receive Chicago television stations there. I did see reports on the morning and noon news which is what brought me back here after a bit of a hiatus.

    My question - how did the wife get local police to consider him missing less than 24 hours after his last known contact. I always thought that 48 hours was pretty standard for missing adults unless there was evidence to show that foul play was possible. Maybe authorities know more than they are letting on?

    And what about the final ping - was it confirmed to be a call from the employer? Do we know if it was a call or text? Incoming or outgoing? So many unanswered questions but that sweet boy needs his daddy to come home.

    MC Machinery is also located in Wood Dale which is a very close suburb to the city. I would expect more coverage of this on the afternoon and evening newscasts.

    I wonder if they've checked out all the parking structures in Rosemont and surrounding the airport. There is a whole new area in Rosemont just off the highway where there is a big new mall, a casino and restaurants. To say nothing of the dozens and dozens of large hotels and large office buildings with large parking lots in the close vicinity to where his phone pinged last. I really hope they find him soon.

    The Des Plaines River and Axehead Lake are both right in that area, unless I've got the wrong 2700 Block South River Rd.

    You are looking in the right spot- it's just EXTREMELY built up around there. Wall-to-wall traffic, too.

    If he stopped for cigarettes it was probably at the oasis, a quick exit and entrance to highway that has food, coffee, gas, etc

    Everything is MOO and I am always willing to be wrong!

    I grew up down the street from where his phone pinged.

    There's a new casino just down the street.

    Childhood friend Kristin Vole, 30, of Vernon Hills said they went to Sunday school together at St. Mary of Vernon in Vernon Hills. She and other friends took the advice of a police officer, who is a friend of Steward’s, and they checked all the exits looking for his car starting at his place of employment in Wood Dale where he worked as a machinist.

    “We just want to keep it up on social media and the news outlets in case someone saw something,” she said. They have also started putting posters in various places, including where she works at Ernie’s Shell Gas Station on Route 21 near Lincolnshire.

    I am sincerely hoping this is just an overstressed dad!!

    Hopefully we will hear something from him soon. As other have implied, this area is very built up, so perhaps no foul play is involved!

    I live in Lake Villa, and FWIW, with light traffic I can get to the loop in Chicago in under an hour. An hour and a half would be rush hour traffic. We are only 50 miles from the city, and 15 minutes due west of Six Flags Great America. The story is hitting the Chicago news in the last day or so. Hope he is found safely.

    Yep, I live in East Lake County and I can get downtown Chicago in about 45 minutes (with no traffic).

    Now that the license plate number is public, I hope he and/or his car will be found sound soon.

    Here is the list of all the Oases on the Illinois tollway system. http://www.illinoistollway.com/roadw...ormation/oases

    The only one on the way from Wood Dale to Lake Villa is the Lake Forest Oasis which is 20 miles from Lake Villa on I-94 (mile marker 18). That is 20 miles north of where he was last located due to the I-Pass/call to boss and the ping from his phone. He was travelling from south (Wood Dale) to north (Lake Villa).

    Lake Forest is E on this map:

    I had this thought too, and I really hope you're right. There are a plethora of hotels in the immediate area where maybe he just needed to get away.

    It's very strange that his car hasn't hit an IPASS. Though if he went through the city to go anywhere south, he wouldn't have necessarily hit a toll. I'm not sure about the northern suburbs though. I've lived on the northside for a long time, but I couldn't begin to tell you anything about the expressways or the burbs.
