    IL - Bradley Olsen, 26, Dekalb, 20 Jan 2007

    I found out about this missing young man, because his mother posted on the message board that Lisa Stebic's family set up. When I searched yesterday I was only able to locate one article and wanted to post a missing thread for him here. I feel for this young man, his mother, and for his little 6 year old daughter and pray he is soon reunited with them.

    From an article dated April 27, 2007:

    Bradley Olsen, 26, of Maple Park has been missing since Jan. 19, when he last was seen at Bar One in DeKalb.

    "It's getting harder as time has gone by", said his mother, Sue Olsen of Maple Park. "He has a daughter who is 6 who needs to be taken care of."

    The family has organized two searches for Olsen, but no new searches are planned.

    "Friends and family are out on their own looking," she said.

    DeKalb Police Lt. Jim Kayes said there were no leads into his disappearance.

    Forgot to post this from the article above:

    Have any information?

    Contact DeKalb police Lt. Jim Kayes at (815) 748-8400 with information about Bradley Olsen.

    There is supposedly a MySpace page set up for Bradley Olsen. If someone finds it, please post the link!

    Hoping we can help locate Bradley!

    Another article about Bradley, dated Feb 7, 2007:

    http://www.kcchronicle.com/articles/...a595449043.txt

    The article states Bradley has a bit of a criminal past. Maybe that's why we haven't heard more about him. Regardless, he still has people that love him and need help locating him.

    Link to myspace page:

    http://profile.myspace.com/index.cfm...ndid=161697218

    The page states that he stayed behind when his friends left and he was last known to have been looking for a ride back home. I'm not sure how far home was from the bar, but being that DeKalb is pretty much in the middle of cornfields and being that it was about 8 degrees the night he went missing, he may not have been picky enough about who stopped to give him a ride. Just a thought......

    This man is literally missing from his own backyard. I looked at a map, and these locations are a straight shot down one road. An 8 mile drive. and hes missing. Something is definately fishy here.

    Thanks, Mom!


    If anyone who reads here is a myspace member, it might be nice to post a message there linking this thread so Brad's family and friends will know. TIA!

    I just heard back form the people on his myspace page. They said they will be checking this page out.
    So if you are reading this, I encourage you to join us and let us know how the investigation and search are going. In the meantime, Brad, his family, and friends are in my prayers.

    I really wish that people...women and men...wouldn't leave bars alone. So many young people have left bars alone and disappeared. You wouldn't think that anything bad could happen to a man alone but it has happened a lot of times and especially to the college age men.

    I hope that this young man is found soon. It doesn't seem that he would just take off and leave a little girl behind never to call home or anything. My heart goes out to the family and to his little girl. She is probably having a really hard time understanding where her daddy is.

    According to the person running his myspace page there was video surveillance at the bar, but it didn't show anything regarding Brad.
    This is heartbreaking!!!

    Search

    Three families are expected to meet this weekend for the first time -- the families of three missing suburban men from three separate missing persons cases.

    As WBBM's Steve Miller reports, a search for one of the men is drawing them all together.

    Missing since January: 27-year-old Bradley Olsen of DeKalb County.

    Missing since February: 38-year-old Scott Anthony Arcaro of Lisle.

    Missing since February: 45-year-old John Spira (pictured) of St. Charles.

    This Saturday, families of all three men will meet for the first time to search for John Spira.

    Again, thanks Marie for posting the news about the three families meeting tomorrow. I will say an extra prayer for the families of Bradley, John and Scott that they find some of the answers they are looking for. IMO, there's nothing as unnerving as not knowing.

    It's weird to me that three grown men disappear from with a fairly close proximity of each other within a month's period of time. Just plain weird.

    I wonder if there was a back door to the bar that didn't have a camera. He had to have left the bar somehow. There must be more then one way to leave in case of fires I would think.
