CHICAGO — A missing 26-year-old man has ties to a 22-year-old University of Illinois at Chicago student found dead along Lake Michigan in early May, according to multiple news outlets.
Daniel Sotelo was last seen near the 1700 block of S. Racine on April 29, according to a missing person flyer. Authorities describe Sotelo as a 5-foot-8-inches, weighing 155 pounds with brown hair, eyes, and a medium skin complexion.
The 26-year-old was reported missing one day before Natally Brookson, who was last seen leaving work at Friedman Place, located in the 5500 block of N. Maplewood Ave, on April 30.
