    Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.

    "When from a long distant past nothing persists, after the people are dead, after things are broken and scattered, still alone, more persistent, more faithful, the smell and taste of things remain poised a long, long time like souls, ready to remind us, waiting, hoping for their moment amid the ruins of all the rest, and bear unfaltering in the tiny and almost impalpable drop of their essence the vast structure of recollection."

    Very close to home.

    Unfortunately I'm not finding much on him. I've been traveling so I hadn't heard anything yet. Hoping he's found safe soon!

    Police asked for the public's help in finding him on December 25. His family provided a photo of Hovinen, who is 6'2" and 205 pounds with short blonde hair. He was last seen at Skeeters Saloon, located at 1691 Elgin Road (on Route 25) in Carpentersville. He was wearing a red Blackhawks jersey, jeans, gray tennis shoes and a black jacket.

    His car is a black Toyota Tacoma with a personalized red Chicago Blackhawks license plate #ROBWH.

    The red arrow is the location of the bar Skeeters saloon in carpentersville.

    To the north is Wisconsin and to the Southeast is Chicago.

    I assume so, even though the article doesn't outright state it.

    May or may not be accurate, but I keep finding that he may live in Wauconda (close to Carpentersville).

    The only reason I bring it up is that it's a 30ish minute drive back home from the bar if that's the case. (If he was heading home, etc)

    I live in Carpentersville and have not heard anything about this! Is there any information on this case? Any FB page or info on his actions that night?

    It doesn't look like he has a Facebook page, but his sister does...she posted that he was last seen leaving his house, in Carpentersville. She also says to keep an eye out for his truck, so I assume that yes it is missing also.

    The only thing I can find on Facebook is his sister posting about him on her page. SHG. She said his truck is missing too. She has a better picture up of him.

    Very sad indeed. He was found deceased in Barrington Hills, around Algonquin/Bateman rds in the Forest Preserve. Not sure but he wasn't headed towards Carpentersville or Wauconda. The weather was horrible, so I wonder if he was turned around.
