CHICAGO (CBS)– A missing persons case that is almost six years old is getting a boost. WBBM NewsRadio’s Steve Miller reports.
It was February of 2007 when 45-year-old John Spira disappeared, last seen in West Chicago, Illinois.
His sister Stephanie McNeil has been pressing investigators and the public to do more to help find her brother.

Her latest quest: to get a billboard to remind people that John Spira is still missing.
“I just asked for a billboard and I honestly didn’t think they would do it because it was a huge request. And John’s case is getting pretty old,” McNeil said. “But I thought it couldn’t hurt to ask.”
And Clear Channel Outdoor advertising is donating not one but 14 digital billboards.
“Which just blows my mind,” she said.
A spokesman for Clear Channel said the billboards average 14 feet by 48 feet and will be up at least this month and next.
