Spring Creek Valley Forest Preserve in Barrington Hills is also known as Spring Lake, and consists of semi-rural rolling hills in the northwest corner of Cook County. Almost 4,000 acres of wilderness serve as a wildlife refuge with unmarked trails. There are equestrian activities permitted in the area.
A ping from Anderson’s cellphone Monday night led Cook County Forest Preserve police, while assisting Arlington Heights police, to discover his dark silver or charcoal Acura TL near the Spring Creek Valley Forest Preserve in Barrington Hills. Anderson’s vehicle was located near the intersection of Donlea Road and Bateman Road in Barrington Hills at 7:00 pm. The location is near a west utility entrance to Spring Creek Valley Forest Preserve and Spring Lake Nature Preserve. The location of the vehicle was about one-half mile north of Algonquin Road. The scene is also located near the Barrington Hills Riding Center and large estate homes to the west.
