    Folks here say that car was found up at the rest area, not in a corn field. This area is a tourist area....but the season is over for the year for the most part so it is not a busy time now. The local paper here ran a bit about it today:

    Authorities search hills for teen


    The vehicle of a missing 18-year-old Illinois man was found at a rest stop east of Baraboo along Highway 33 Sunday night.
    Authorities were searching wooded areas and hills near the rest stop Monday afternoon.

    The man, named Lee, is described as being 6-feet tall and 145 pounds with brown eyes, medium length light brown hair.
    He was last seen Saturday morning in his hometown of Buffalo Grove, Ill., according to his parents. See Tuesday's edition of the Baraboo News Republic for more details.

    Some more details from http://www.todaystmj4.com/news/local/10736656.html

    Oct 23, 2007

    A missing Illinois teenís car was found at a roadside rest area between Baraboo and Portage, Wis., leading his parents to travel to Wis. to help authorities search for the teen.

    Beth Frazin, the teenís mother and Barry Frazin, the teenís stepfather traveled to Sauk County from their Buffalo Grove, Ill. home to help authorities search for 18-year-old Lee S. Cutler. Cutlerís gray 2007 Toyota Corolla was found at a rest area along state Highway 33 Sunday night.

    Barry Frazin, the teenís stepfather, said Cutler has been going through a difficult time, dealing with his grandmotherís battle with cancer, another friend having cancer and stresses with school. Cutlerís parents say they donít know why he would have traveled to Wis.

    Barry Frazin said the teen has an ex-girlfriend who lives in Cedarburg, but that wouldnít explain why his car would be in Sauk County. Frazin said Cutler went to a birthday party Friday night and spent the night at a friendís house. On Saturday morning, Cutler drove another friend home and said he was going to work.

    Tracking of Cutlerís cell phone indicates the last time it was used was 12:30 a.m. Saturday.

    Authorities plan to conduct a dive search in the Baraboo River Tuesday.

    As CBS 2's Joanie Lum reports, Lee Cutler, 18, is a senior at Adlai E. Stevenson High School in Lincolnshire. He was reported missing since Saturday morning after not showing up at a new job, which is friends said is out of character.

    They said there is no indication that anything is going wrong in his life.

    Police said Cutler Cutler went to a birthday party Friday night and spent the night at a friend's house. Police said afterward, he dropped off a friend Saturday and was going to his workplace at a Rock America store in Vernon Hills, but he never arrived.

    ~snip~

    Tracking of calls on Cutler's cell phone indicated the last time it was used was at 12:30 a.m. Saturday. Family and friends are concerned because Cutler's cell phone voice mail is full, so they have set up a Facebook page to gather leads in his disappearance.

    I haven't found any coverage of a press conference.

    Teen's Car, Pack Found in Wisconsin Cornfield

    Yesterday, it was his car. Today, it was a backpack and blankets.

    Authorities hope that the two discoveries in less than two days will help lead to 18-year-old Lee Cutler, an Illinois high school senior last seen leaving a friend's house Saturday morning.

    ~snip~

    An initial foot search of the area turned up no signs of the teen, and deputies failed to locate tracks leading away from the car. The foot search, as well as an aerial search, broadened today, while deputies combed the banks of the Baraboo River.

    Gear belonging to missing Buffalo Grove teen found in Wisconsin

    ~snip~

    Stammen said that Cutler's keys were not in the Corolla when it was found and that there were signs of a struggle.

    Search teams walked through nearby cornfields and wooded areas between Baraboo and Portage, authorities said. Stammen said the backpack and blankets were found Monday on the banks of the Baraboo River.

    There also has been an air search, authorities said.

    "This is a glacial area," Stammen said. "There are large bluffs, marshland, cornfields."

    He said a patrol boat with sonar radar was used to search the river, which he said was high and moving swiftly.

    Family members found a receipt from Kettle Moraine State Forest in Cutler's car. It appeared to have been printed at 1:41 p.m. Saturday. The forest has a southern unit near Whitewater, on the route between Cutler's hometown and Baraboo, and a northern unit that is north of Cedarburg, where he has an ex-girlfriend.

    Cutler has been known to hike in bluffs like the ones near Baraboo.

    The sheriff says teams searched the area on foot and by airplane today. Searchers also used a dive team and a boat with sonar equipment to check the Baraboo River.

    More searching is planned Wednesday.

    Search for Ill. teen turns up pill bottle, letters

    An empty pill bottle and letters to and from loved ones have been found by searchers looking for an Illinois teen whose car was found parked in a highway rest area Sunday night near the hiking country of the Baraboo bluffs.

    Details about the letters were not disclosed, but Sauk County Sheriff Randy Stammen says in a news release that the bottle was for Advil PM, an over-the-counter pain reliever and sleeping aid.

    Dr. Perper (on NG) said he knows of no suicides or overdoses from Advilpm. This is encouraging.
    "WE SEEK FOR THE TRUTH. WE SEEK JUSTICE.
    THE COURTS REQUIRE IT. THE VICTIMS CRY FOR IT
    AND GOD DEMANDS IT!"

    It was soooo sad watching the mother trying to reach out to him. I hope that he is found soon and safe.

    Advil PM is fairly new on the market, so I'm not suprised there's no reported suicides yet.

    I wish we could find that peice of the puzzle that took him from Buffalo Grove Illinois all the way up to Baraboo Wisconsin.

    Before he got to Baraboo, though, he had a time stamped receipt in his car that was from Kettle Moraine State Forest, in Campbellsport WI. I have no idea what brought him from Buffalo Grove... to Kettle Moraine state forest... to Baraboo WI. However, there is a well known State forest in Baraboo. It's called Devils Lake State Park, and the park is very close to where his car was found- but he was NOT at the park. He could have just driven right to it. I do think, though, that he was trying to get there, for whatever reason.

    According to mapquest, the time it takes to get from Buffalo Grove to Kettle Moraine State Park is 1 hour, 57 minutes (110.12 miles). Then, from Kettle Moraine State Park to Baraboo WI (Devils Lake):
    Total Est. Time: 1 hour, 56 minutes Total Est. Distance: 95.94 miles

    I think we have a person here that is more familiar with this area than I am. I spend several weekends at Devils Lake each summer, but I don't know the highways at all- hubby always drives. How far was Lee's car from the park?
