    Yes she does! Patrick's mom posted a photo of a billboard along with an update about a land search. Still no updates on his whereabouts, unfortunately. I hope the new billboard helps bring him home.

    Has anyone heard any updates regarding the remains found near Newburg Road in Rockford? I have heard some ideas that some think it might be Patrick. I hope this is not the case and that he is still out there, to be found alive somewhere.

    Welcome to Websleuths, sar7venus! Thanks for joining us, and thank you for the link.

    This is the first I've heard of these remains being found but per the article below, the autopsy was just performed two days ago. It may be a while yet before we learn the person's identity.

    There were also remains found on March 9 which are unidentified. These were found just 5 miles from where Patrick was last seen. :(

    [...]

    Human remains were also found March 9 near the U.S. Highway 20 bypass and Illinois 251.

    The remains are those of an adult but have not been positively identified.

    The remains have since been transported to a forensic anthropologist’s office in Indiana for further study.

    Thank you. Yes, I have been following all the various remains that have been found around Winnebago County over the past month or two. This is very unusual for this area; I live around here, and it is not normal; this is why it has caught my attention.

    The remains on Auburn were positively ID'd as a missing Mendota man, 33 year old Wesley Shaver.

    Mugshot from DUI arrest out of state. Face looks thinner in the photo, hair obviously different, but same age, height, weight, and first middle last name. If convicted could he have lost his driving privileges? If he couldn't have driven and was on foot that might help in a search as he couldn't have gotten too far without wheels.

    The charge was from 2018 - if he lost his license, I don't think it would have been for this long. If I recall correctly, he left walking from his residence. Unfortunately, there is a river fairly close to that area.
