Her family, who revealed Coles is three months pregnant, said they found her auto parked on her block, with her cell phone and purse still inside.

Earlier this month, US Postal Service letter carrier Kierra Coles left her Chicago apartment apparently dressed for work. A surveillance video captured her walking up and down the street the morning she vanished.

Foul play is now suspected in the disappearance of pregnant U.S. Postal Service worker Kierra Coles.

Kierra Coles, 27, who is three-months pregnant, was last seen leaving her apartment October 2 near 82nd Street and Coles Avenue, according to a missing person alert from Chicago police and the National Association of Letter Carriers.

"I miss the smile on her face".

"She wouldn't go this long without talking to me", Phillips told WLS TV.

Kierra Coles was last seen on October 2, 2018, near 81st and Vernon. That location is about 3 miles away from where WLS reported Coles lives.

Since her disappearance Kierra's family have been doing all they can to get the word out and find their daughter.

Coles' family said it's unlike her to just disappear. "We talk every day", Phillips told WLS. "Never, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine days".

Dan Perkins, Phillips' boyfriend, told WGN-TV in Chicago that something made Cole walk past her vehicle. "So I said, okay she's probably just in there, maybe she's asleep or - I don't know, I just didn't feel right".

The U.S. Postal Inspection Service is offering a reward of up to $25,000 for information leading to Coles' whereabouts, in addition to rewards from the National Association of Letter Carriers and community activist Andrew Holmes.

"Our thoughts and prayers are with Kierra and her family, and like everyone else we hope for a positive outcome to this situation", Mack Julion, the president of the Chicago branch of the National Association of Letter Carriers, told the Chicago Sun-Times in a statement.

Coles is described as being 5-foot-4 and 125 pounds, with a "Lucky Libra" tattoo on her back and one of a heart on her hand. We know he is going to be a suspect, but as far as people putting his mother, his kids - all that stuff up there - that's just not right.
