If any one has any information regarding the whereabouts of John Spira please come forward,(even if you feel the information is insignificant).
He is a very beloved member of the Spira family and we are terrified at his disappearance.

I am a friend of John's through my sister-in-law Maritza. He is a very good man with a great sense of humor and fun-loving heart. Our prayer's are with John and his family. PS: I love his 9second Nova and listening to his band at the Satisfied Frog.

I have known John Spira and the entire Spira family for the better part of 25 years. John is a terrific guy and one of the nicest guys to be around. The fact that he is missing is absolutely heart wrenching and almost too much to bear.

I pray for your safe return "Chicago Johnny".

To the Spira family, our prayers are with you at all times.

I know John through my girlfriend who is a very good friend of John's. I feel for his sister Stephanie and his brother Tom. I heard nothing but great things about John. I agree I'm worried too it just doesn't add up. Linda did some investigating on her own. She found out that there is a 26 year old man missing from Maple Park since January 28th. 5'8 178 lbs. There is a picture of him in some news articles. He was last seen leaving his parents Tavern they own. He was call ing friends for a ride home. His discription his similar to John's. Has the authorities compared the two instances. His parents also own a construction company. I feel bad knowing this was a great guy and totally out of context for him just to take off. If there is anything I can do for you Tom, and Stephanie please let me know my address is included. kevinjr3@hotmail.com
God Bless,

I have been John's step-daughter for the last 14 years. He is one of the most awesome people I know. Our family here in Buffalo, NY always looked so forward to his visits. We always felt blessed to have him as part of our family. I am praying for his safe return constantly. To the Spira family - please let me know if there is anything at all that I can do. I love you Papa John.

My wife and I will be there to show our support for the search. I also have some friends that are coming that have only met him once or not at all but want to help. I cannot get over the fact that we have no answers at all, its very frustrating. Just a few weeks ago he was over at our place playing darts with us and chasing the dog all over the place.
He is in our hearts and prayers.

I'm deeply sad to have just read about John. When I lived in the Western 'burbs of Chicago the 80's, I had the honor of playing with him & I was always in awe of his abilities. My prayers go out to his family & I pray he is found safe.
