Police Suspect "Foul Play" in Case of a Pregnant Woman Who's Been Missing for Over Two Weeks
Family and friends of Kierra Coles, a 27-year-old woman who's three months pregnant with her first child, are seeking any information that may bring her home safe. Coles was last seen near her home in the South Side of Chicago on Oct. 2. Now, more than two weeks since her disappearance, the Chicago Police Department say they suspect "foul play."
"Based on the length of time of Kierra Coles' disappearance and the fact that she has fallen off the grid, police suspect possible foul play," the Chicago Police Department told The Associated Press on Friday, Oct. 19. "We continue to get leads and are following up diligently on those leads."
According to WLS TV, Coles was last seen in surveillance video on Oct. 2, walking down the street outside of her apartment. She appears to be dressed for her job as a letter carrier with the U.S. Postal Service in the video, though she reportedly called in sick that day.
Within two days of her disappearance, Coles' mother, Karen Phillips, called to report her missing to the Chicago Police Department. "She wouldn't go this long without talking to me," Phillips told WLS TV. "We talk every day. She wouldn't have me worrying like this."
Police discovered Coles' purse and cell phone left in her car, parked on the street where she was last seen, according to theChicago Tribune.
Since Coles worked as a letter carrier, the U.S. Postal Inspection Service—the investigations arm of the U.S. Post Office—is investigating her disappearance alongside the Chicago Police Department. Though Chicago police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi told theChicago Tribunethat investigators have no reason to believe Coles' disappearance is linked to her work.
Ragina Kennedy, a family friend, told theChicago Tribunethat Coles had a lunch bag in her car, along with the purse and cellphone, seeming to indicate she planned to go to work that day. "This is so out of character for her, and we're scared," Kennedy said.
In a radio interview, Coles' sister mom shared the same concern. "I felt something was wrong because I had been calling her all that day," she said. "With not hearing from her all day Wednesday and half of the day Thursday, I just knew that something was wrong."
The U.S. Postal Inspection Service is offering a reward of ,000 for information leading to Coles' location. A local activist additionally contributed ,000 to the reward for information, as well as ,000 offered by the Chicago branch of the National Association for Letter Carriers—a union to which Coles belongs, according to theChicago Tribune.
Anyone who has information regarding Coles' location is asked to contact the U.S. Postal Inspection Service at 877-876-2455 and reference case number 2693502-WPV, or the Chicago Police Department at 312-747-8274 and reference case number JB-462998.
