The family of a Springfield Township man who went missing last month, invited the community over on Saturday to say, “thank you.”
Jon Schoenike, his wife Lynn Maro, and their daughters hosted a picnic at the family’s home on Middletown Road.
Schoenike went missing May 17 and community members held prayer vigils and services to pray for his safe return.
A release from Jon’s law partner says Schoenike was in his home state of Wisconsin. But he heard those prayers from the community, and called his wife to tell her he needed help.
“We still have a long road ahead of us, but we know the power of prayer that brought him home will help get us through it,” Maro said. “We’re celebrating family, friends, people who didn’t even know us that came to help, and just wanted to thank them.”
There are still many unanswered questions surrounding Schoenike’s disappearance and return home.
The release from his law partner stated that Schoenike has no recollection of changing clothes, or leaving his house that morning.
