The family of a man who disappeared five years ago, gathered in Chicago's northwest suburbs to keep his memory alive.

Saturday, friends and relatives released balloons at New Trier West High School in Northfield for John Spira of Saint Charles.

He was last seen leaving his West Chicago business on Feb. 23, 2007.

Several months later, his office went up in flames.

Police have said they believe Spira simply walked away from his family and his life. Spira's family believes he was killed.
