A note left at the cabin was left there that they believe came from Jonathan. The note said he took the plates off of the white BMW he was driving and would be traveling to the Boundary Waters in Minnesota where he would leave the car and move out on foot. 

Waukesha County said that Pogreba's credit card was used in Mauston.
