ARLINGTON HEIGHTS, Ill. (Sun-Times Media Wire) -

Police are searching for an elderly man who went missing Thursday from his northwest suburban home.

Eugene Jonsson, 84, left his home at 7:45 p.m. to go to a nearby restaurant, according to a release from Arlington Heights police.

Police do not suspect foul play, but are asking for the public's help in finding Jonsson. Although he does not have any known medical conditions, he has recently gotten lost while driving.

His vehicle, a gray 2004 Buick LeSabre with Illinois plates JONS507, was last seen in Kendall County at 12:45 a.m. Friday, police said, when Jonsson stopped in Yorkville and he asked for directions to Ogden Avenue and Route 59 in Naperville.

Jonsson is described as a 5-foot-10, 190-pound white man with gray hair, blue eyes and eyeglasses.

Anyone with information should call detectives at (847) 368-5348.

    Robert De Niro says Tribeca Film Festival is his passion

    Robert De Niro is a family man, a filmmaker, an entrepreneur and one of my favorite actors of all time. He's also a co-founder of the Tribeca Film Festival, which has more to see than ever before. De Niro wears just as many hats on screen as he does in real life. The father of six starred in six films last year, owns four restaurants and a hotel, and still finds time each spring for the Tribeca Film Festival, Lower Manhattan's annual cinematic showcase.

    New York City is exploring ways to curb the speed of taxis. The Taxi and Limousine Commission this week issued a request for information on "anti speeding vehicle technologies."  The measures include devices that can intervene when drivers exceed posted speeds and "advisory systems" that can sound alarms when reckless driving is detected.
