Surveillance video shows a pregnant woman who has been missing from South Chicago for nearly a week dressed in her work uniform on the day she was last seen.
A neighbor’s surveillance video shows Kierra Coles, 26, dressed in her U.S. Post Service uniform, heading to work on Tuesday, Oct. 9. In the video, she passes her car and goes across the street then disappears out of frame. She was last seen near 82nd Street and Coles Avenue.
“She seen something that made her turn around that fast and cross the street and her car was on the other side of the street,” Dan Perkins, her mother’s boyfriend, said.
Even though she was dressed for work, a U.S. Post Office spokesperson said she called in sick that morning.
Her sister, Kimberly Phillips, and other family and friends passed out flyers on Tuesday asking for help finding Coles. Phillips last saw her sister when she picked her up from work last Monday. Her mother called Thursday and asked if she had talked to her.
“I immediately went to Snapchat. She snapped everywhere and I saw there was no story, so it kind of puzzled me,” Phillips said.
Phillips contacted her boyfriend, the father of Coles’ unborn child. Coles was three months pregnant and expecting her first child, according to relatives.
Family went to Coles’ apartment at 81st Street and Vernon Avenue to check on her and a missing person’s alert from Chicago police went out Monday.
“I just don’t understand. Who would do something like this? I don’t know. I couldn’t place my finger on it,” Perkins said.
Coles is described as 5 feet, 4 inches tall, 125 pounds and has a tattoo of a heart on her right hand and a tattoo that reads “Lucky Libra” on her back.
Idk what I’m missing here. The video I am seeing does not show kierra hesitating by her car at all whatsoever. are there two versions of the video?? She is passing several sedan sized cars and her suv is parked in the back of the frame of the video on the edge of the street. Why are people saying she was going to her car then she went across the street? To me it looks like she was walking with purpose. I don’t think she was surprised by anyone on the other side of the street. I’m wondering if her “bf” arranged something ahead of time. I hope phone records are being checked.
So what I’m stuck on is:
how did her purse end up in the car if she never went to her car?? I thought maybe she went to her car initially went back inside for more items? But I know I wouldn’t leave my purse in my car and also how much stuff would she need just to go to work?
I included a pic from the surveillance of what I believe is the car parked in the back. Also the pic at the bottom is her actual suv. Per an interview with her mother.
Anyone with information is asked to call police at 312-747-8274 or dial 911.
