Reward: Chicago Man Walks Away From Car Accident and Vanishes
The parents of a missing Chicago man is desperately seeking answers after their son mysteriously disappeared after surviving a car accident in late January. Tom and MaryMargaret Howe are offering a $10,000 reward for information that leads to their son’s whereabouts.
Thomas “Tommy” Howe, 24, was driving to his family’s home in Antioch, Illinois from Chicago when he collided with another vehicle on Interstate 94. A witness claims to have seen Tommy walk away from the crash and toward the Old School Forest Preserve. He has not been seen or heard from since.
According to police, Tommy’s personal cell phone was left inside the vehicle at the crash site. His work cell phone was located two days after the crash, about a quarter mile into the reserve.
Since Tommy vanished, police and volunteers have scoured the Forest preserve with search parties, trained K-9 units, private aircraft and even drones, all with no luck.
Tom and MaryMargaret Howe are hoping a $10,000 reward will bring more witnesses forward with information about their son. The family has also set up a Facebook page for people to leave tips and learn more information about Tommy.
