He has been spotted as far away as Denver, Colorado, his wife said on Facebook. Prior to that, he had been seen on April 1 just after midnight in Bryant Park, New York City.
Lauren Suit and other supporters have also started a Facebook page titled Missing/Endangered: Carl Suit. They regularly post pictures and updates on sightings of both Carl and his vehicle. More than 2,800 people have already "liked" the page. Searchers are also using the hashtag #FindingCarl in order to "align Twitter efforts" with the Facebook page so that as many social media platforms as possible are covered, according to a post on the page.

When he was last see, he still had a beard.
In a Facebook post just two days after his disappearance, Lauren Suit said the family is “devastated” by her husband’s disappearance.
