    His parents say the 27-year-old was visiting their Palos Park home last Thursday. He was on the phone with his boss, quitting his job with a securities firm. Something upset him so much he walked off with just the T-shirt and sweatpants he was wearing.

    “I started driving to find him. He was already off our street. I didn’t know where he went,” Christina Cunningham tells CBS 2’s Pamela Jones.

    She says he’d walked about a mile to Cherrywood Drive when she caught up with him. But her son waved her away and ignored her attempts to get him to talk. He vanished soon after.

    Family Offers $10,000 Reward To Find Missing Chicago Man

    The Cook County Sheriff’s Department and more than 200 volunteers combed the forest preserve’s surrounding subdivisions.


    Authorities say it would take new information to bring searchers back out to look for the missing man. They say it’s too early to speculate what may have happened to him.
    The family has hired a private investigator to help police with the search.

    From the fInd JC FB page, I read he left his wallet and phone at "home". He went to school to become a lawyer and therefore is very intelligent. He is somewhat depressed now. Was last seen by Marist HS.

    The article indicates John lives in Chicago's Lakeview neighborhood. Nothing is mentioned about searches around there. Wonder if his place has been searched for further clues into his state of mind.

    Sounds as if he just snapped. Left the house barefoot with no wallet or phone.
    The intersection pictured on FB, where John was seen last, is huge.
    Where would he have gone from there with bare feet?

    According to MSM he was last seen at the intersection of McCarthy Rd and 104th street. Marist HS is not within walking distance. It's several miles east of Palos Park within the Chicago City limits.

    IDK how he would have gotten from his parents house to Lake View unless someone picked him up. I'm not very familiar with the area but have recently been there a few times in the last few months. IDK what kind of public transportation is available in that area.

    There is a lot of water in the area, in various places.

    I'd like to know if it has been confirmed that his boss was the last person he spoke with via telephone.


    Praying he is taking some time out and found safely soon.

    Here is another MSM article about John's disappearance. A lot more info here than in some of the other articles.


    http://southtownstar.chicagotribune....l#.VF0C7slNe40



    I'm a bit confused on the last location seen. His mom mentions she last saw him on Cherrywood Dr. (about a mile from his parents home.) LE (Sheriff Dart) mentions(in msm) search/scent dogs tracked him to McCarthy (which I think is 123rd) and 104th St. Did anyone actually see him at McCarthy and 104th or is the last place seen based on the search dogs?

    I'm going to try and get some WS members who are more familiar with this particular area to join this thread.

    Also, any map makers which can do a map for us with the major places mentioned in MSM? Those places would be his parents address, the location last seen, the Cherrywood location his mom last saw him, Marist HS and Lakeview in Chicago.

    Praying John reaches out to someone to let them know he is ok. Even if he still wants his privacy for a bit of time.

    Thanks Cubby for filling me in, I've heard nothing about this case, but I've been working a lot so I didn't spend much time watching tv, maybe there was coverage I missed.

    McCarthy is 123rd, yes, and this is a nice, safe, leafy area that I have driven past a thousand times. Gonna share this on Facebook and read through the thread now.

    Bumping for John and to get the FaceBook page set up for John to the current post. The FB page is doing a great job at getting the word out and posting updates.

    Per the FB page, the goal is simply to make sure John is ok. His parents are not wishing to force him to do anything.


    John is currently not listed in NamUs. It would probably be a good idea for the PI working the case to ensure John is added just to ensure he is in a national database. https://www.findthemissing.org/en

    I've been on McCarthy. I got lost on my way to Orland Park last summer and missed the turn to stay on 83 and ended up staying on Archer until I saw 355 and realized I was going the wrong way. I took 140 something east through Homer Township to get back near Harlem and 159th. Absolutely gorgeous area and far far more beautiful than any of the northern burbs. (I had to go to Vernon Hills for a dress and that area just does not hold a candle to the south burbs, imo.)

    I hope John is ok and am glad to see the FB page going strong and keeping people updated.
