    This report says he was sleeping in the car when it was stolen. Oh dear, isn't it too cold to sleep in a car?

    Authorities say Drake Whitker was taken from the 1700 block of Good Ave. in Park Ridge, Ill. around 12:20 p.m.

    This is a St. Louis Station. Not seeing anything closer to Park Ridge yet.

    My phone just buzzed with the Amber Alert as well. It's 2:05 p.m. here.

    I just received this alert on my phone. Park Ridge is a safe area, at least very far from the kind of place where carjacking, especially daytime carjackings, are the norm. Hope he's found safe soon.

    This is very near a major expressway and also some major roads through the city. Park Ridge boarders the North West Side of Chicago.

    I just got the alert and am sick to my stomach.... I am positive I saw this car about 15 minutes after it happened driving down my street but I didn't know about the alert. I am sick. Just sick. I talked to police and they said they have spotted it since then passed my area.

    I just started another thread on this too.

    I hope this little guy is ok. The street where he was taken from is very near I294 which is a major expressway and also near Northwest Highway and Dempster.

    Park Ridge boarders the North West Side of Chicago.

    There are sirens going crazy by my house. Praying. Praying. That they found the car and the boy safe. Of course it could be anything. But, police sirens are not heard often.
