Missing teen's pants, wallet, keys found, Sheriff's search ending
**Updated Information 11/08/2007
I don't know how many mothers looked at his picture and saw their son too, but I did. He reminds me of my son, he looks like my son, and, in a greater, Jewish way, he is my son, your son, everyone's son. He is still missing, and the heartbreak of losing one's child, no matter how, no matter what age, is one of the most devistating things I can imagine. May Hashm restore this boy to his family, to his community, to his people now and in full health. Miracles do happen. Let's not forget that.

A dive team from the Sauk County (Wis.) Sheriff's Department found a pair of tan slacks containing missing Buffalo Grove teen Lee S. Cutler's wallet and car keys Friday afternoon. The wallet contained identification and cash, police said.
Lee Cutler was last seen in a dark blue sweater with a red stripe kippah on his head khaki pants.
The pants were hanging from a tree branch partially submerged in the Baraboo River, the department said in a release. Cutler's pants, wallet and car keys were found about 250 yards downstream from where his backpack was spotted on Oct. 22.
Officials said the river's water level has been falling, making the pants visible. Search teams continued to search that area over the weekend with no further discoveries, officials said Monday morning.

The Sauk County (Wis.) Sheriff's Department has concluded the majority of the search effort for 18-year-old Buffalo Grove resident Lee S. Cutler after a week and a half scouring the Baraboo River and surrounding area, family spokesman Dan De Grazia said Wednesday afternoon.
Investigators have found the Stevenson High School senior's gray 2007 Toyota Corolla, a backpack, clothing and other personal belongings in Fairfield Township, Wis., but they have not located Cutler.
De Grazia said the Buffalo Grove Police Department will take the lead in the investigation from now on as Wisconsin officials are confident that Cutler is not in the area along the river. The search effort employed foot patrols, ATVs, planes and helicopters equipped with infrared scanners, sonar and cameras in addition to dive teams in the river.
"The family is having a hard time adjusting to the news," De Grazia said. Cutler was last seen dropping off a friend at 9:50 a.m. Oct. 20 after attending a party the previous night. He failed to show up to his part-time job at Rock America in Vernon Hills, where he was scheduled to begin work at noon.
