CHICAGO — The U.S. Postal Service is offering a $25,000 reward for information about one of its missing workers.
The missing woman, Kierra Coles, was least seen on Oct. 2 near 81st Street and Vernon Avenue, police said. Coles’ mother, Karen Phillips, told the Tribune that Coles is about three months pregnant. Phillips reported Coles missing on Oct. 4 after not hearing from her daughter for two days, according to the Tribune.
“I talk to her every day,” Phillips told the Tribune. “I knew something was wrong. It’s just not like her.”
