    The U.S. Postal Service is now getting involved in the search effort for one of their own.

    Kierra Coles, 27, disappeared after being seen on video two weeks ago outside her home. She has not been heard from since, authorities said.

    On Tuesday, the U.S. Postal Service Inspection Unit announced it was offering a $25,000 reward for help in her safe return.

    Coles is 3 months pregnant and has a boyfriend, officials said.

    Kierra Coles' father is passing out flyers hoping to find his missing daughter in Chicago. She hasn't been seen since Tuesday, Oct. 2, 2018.
    The postal worker was last seen on surveillance video from outside her apartment in Chicago's South Side on Oct. 2. Police said she called out of work that morning saying she was sick, but was seen on the video wearing her uniform and her car was found outside her apartment.

    Police said they are treating the case as a non-suspicious missing person.


    Coles' mother, Karen Phillips, said it's possible she became overwhelmed by everything that was going on in her life. Phillips told Chicago ABC station WLS her daughter recently moved out of her home and into the apartment.

    "Maybe something did happen where she was overcome with a lot, you know when you are pregnant you are emotional," she said. "I want to say she just went somewhere and didn't want to tell nobody and then she will just come home but I don't feel that."

    The $25,000 offered by the USPS Inspection Unit is in addition to $3,500 offered by her postal union, WLS reported.

    "Whoever it might be knows something," her father Joseph Coles told WLS. Joseph lives in Wisconsin, but has been in town for two weeks handing out flyers and said he "would not leave" before finding her.

    "We're not going to sit idly by and we're not going to rest until we find our sister," Mack Julian, from the Letter Carrier's Union, said.

    Cole is 5-foot-4 and about 125 pounds with black hair and brown eyes.

    Her boyfriend probably has something to do with it. I pray that she's found unharmed.

    Her mom and sister had this to say about the boyfriend:

    Link w/radio interview

    I think mom knows more than she’s saying. She was the first one to throw out the possibility that Kierra just ran away. Now she’s trying to take the focus off the boyfriend. This isn’t typical behavior for the mother of a missing daughter. If the boyfriend is not involved, then where is he? Him being involved doesn’t mean he’s killed her. Maybe they did just run off, but it’s strange for her mom to flat out say she doesn’t think he’s involved.

    The mom and sister are also speaking about her in past tense in the interview. The whole interview was strange to me, but I can’t tell if it’s a low IQ situation or something more sinister.

    Okay, I’ve been digging a bit more. It’s sounding like the boyfriend is NOT missing. He’s just not cooperating with the family. He is allegedly married or in another LTR. He may be a postal worker as well.

    This was also my thinking when I first saw the story, I hope she is found safe. Statistics normally show the father of the unborn child have something to do with it.

    The Dad was on the air Nov 9 but nothing new (besides, he was a bit rude to the staff)


    I pray the family gets some answers, and some closure.

    This is so sad. I live in Chicago and have seen her posters up anytime I go to the post office, at a lot of libraries in Black neighborhoods too. It’s so sad.

    This woman is still missing. I went looking for an update, and saw that they are now trying to find the boyfriend (again) because he moved and vanished. He should have been treated as a serious suspect from the beginning.

    I wish that were the case. The update as of today is that they’ve let the suspects get away.

    I ended up kinda falling down the rabbit hole and watching some psychic medium videos on this. They all say she’s passed on. I hope that’s not true. Two seemed really convincing, but one lady was using an EVP app, which I think is BS.

    This says a lot right here. I don't doubt it was him.

    This is so frustrating that they took so long to go after the guy that now he is in the wind. smh.

    It reminds me of story here in Jax.

    There is highschool girl here that was reported missing in mid Dec. First day was reported as simply missing, then updated to missing and pregnant. A few days later alive, but ran away to the home of a different family member. That was later reported to be a lie by someone in the immediate family and updated to no she is still missing.

    A week or so ago, they arrested her uncle for an old warrant for sexual battery on another teen girl and only yesterday was it reported that he being considered a lead suspect as he may be the father of the baby.

    It made me so mad that it took so long to even consider him or push back harder at whatever information he fed them.

    If that guy wanted to run, he would've had plenty of time to do so. How does a guy with active warrants living in the same house with the missing girl, not be considered the prime suspect??

    In the beginning her mom and sister were talking about how they don’t think he’s involved. They were actually upset about how he and his family were being treated by the public. If he turns out to be the one who did something to her, they should be a bit angry with themselves too. They seemed to be or have been fond of him, so they were protecting this man instead of leaving no stone unturned to find their daughter/sister. :nono:
