We just received this e-mail from the sister of John Spira, who has been missing from the St. Charles/West Chicago area since February 2007. Spira’s family has been coordinating their efforts with other families of missing persons, including Stacy Peterson. Spira’s family is looking for volunteers to join the search this weekend, which will include ground searches and water searches using the Stacy Ann, the boat Friends of Stacy Peterson bought to aid in their search
From Spira’s sister Stephanie McNeil:
“We will be meeting at our usual spot, the parking lot of Brian’s Charhouse located at 27W371 North Avenue in West Chicago at 10:00 am, Friday, Saturday and possibly Sunday. Brian’s is located just north of John’s office. I’d like to focus on wooded, public areas in a south of the office and parts of Pratts Wayne Forest Preserve. If anyone is good with google maps and wouldn’t mind printing off a few please let me know. Also, because the Scarecrow Fest is being held in St. Charles this weekend, and St. Charles is where John lived, I would like to put up flyers in the downtown area. Thanks so much to those who’ve replied and offered to help. Hopefully we’ll have perfect weather for this one!”
