Craft just disappeared

I was driving on Illinois Route 59 in west Chicago, Illinois. I looked up and saw a silver cigar type craft. The sun hit it and I saw the reflection. I thought it was a united airlines jet, as the color was spot on match. But within a few seconds it just vanished! Blue sky no clouds. The craft was about 6-8000 feet.

I watch southwest on final approach from Joliet to Midway airport.

13 years in law enforcement I've never seen a jet just disappear. I'm at a loss for words
