CHICAGO -- A family in Chicago's Back of the Yards neighborhood is asking for the public's help - and is now offering a $10,000 reward - for the safe return of 20-year-old Vicente Mundo.

Mundo is 6 feet tall and 140 pounds with black hair, brown eyes and of Hispanic descent. He was last seen wearing a navy down coat with a Blackhawks baseball hat.

He was last seen 7:15 p.m. Sunday when he left an apartment on the University of Illinois campus and went to his car -- a 2006 silver Acura TL with a special edition Bears license plate 2557.

Then, he never returned.

His sister tells WGN he went to meet someone there -- another student maybe -- but they don't know why. Also missing is the college junior's wallet, iPad, phone, and Acura. His sister says his grades are good and she isn't aware of any problems in his life.

Local police in central Illinois are treating this as a missing persons case. The Mundo family is worried and searching for answers.

"I am close enough with him that he would have told me if something was going on...nothing out of the normal. No event has happened in his life that would make him just leave and not come back," Mundo's sister Viviana said.

    If ur kid is over a certain age,then u have to keep yelling nd screaming that something is wrong! U have to keep telling and asking the police and school for help. I would hire a PI. They can find out a lot. Go thru his emails and phone bills. They are accessible online. There are PW programs that could get his password.
