Haukereid’s luggage, including his medications, arrived in Chicago.

According to a spokesperson, Amtrak police are working with other agencies and Haukereid’s family to try to locate him.  Amtrak investigators have alerted police departments along the Amtrak route.  A passenger on the same part of the train as Haukereid told his family he was last seen at some point while the train was between Little Rock, AR and St. Louis.
