Reporter’s Notebook: Feb. 26

We spent this past Saturday with the family of John Spira, a missing man from St. Charles, on the one-year anniversary of his disappearance. Spira’s family has recently joined with loved ones of other local missing persons, including Stacy Peterson, Scott Arcaro, Bradley Olsen and Lisa Stebic. Kerry Simmons, Stacy’s step-sister was at the party in Spira’s honor. Visit to view the story and see a clip of Kerry speaking about the united front the families have forged.
