The Search for John Spira Continues


Sheriff John E. Zaruba said today that sheriff’s detectives are still seeking the public’s assistance in their continuing investigation into locating John Spira, who went missing under suspicious circumstances seven years ago.  

John was last seen at approximately 7:00 P.M on February 23rd, 2007 at Universal Cable Construction in Unincorporated West Chicago, a business he co-owns with David Stubben.  John and David were the last two employees at Universal Cable Construction that evening. Spira and a friend were to meet at a restaurant in Oak Brook, IL, at 8:30 P.M. that night, however Spira never showed up for dinner and he was not heard from again. Seven months after John’s disappearance the Universal Cable Construction building burned down. 

John Spira is 5ft, 8inches tall and weighs about 160 pounds, with brown hair and hazel eyes. He was last seen wearing a black turtle neck sweater, blue jeans, black shoes and an olive green flight jacket. Spira’s case is an open and active investigation and if anyone has any information regarding this case is asked to call the DuPage County Sheriff’s Office at (630) 407-2141.
