Next week will mark the three year anniversary in the disappearance of Kierra Coles.

Coles, 26, was three months pregnant with her first child when she vanished on Oct. 2, 2018. She was last seen near her apartment at 82nd and Vernon in the Chatham neighborhood.

A neighbor’s surveillance video showed a woman initially believed to be Coles in her U.S. Postal Service uniform the day of her disappearance. In Friday’s press conference, Coles’ mother said the surveillance footage did not show her.

“When you go from seeing your child every day to not seeing her for three years, no one out here can imagine,” Coles’ mother said.

Her parents remain desperate to find her, asking anyone with information to come forward. They said they will never give up on their search.

“Until they come and tell me to identify anything, I believe she is still alive. I’ll stay out here as long as she is out here until we find her and bring her home safe,” Coles’ mother said.

There is a cash reward for anyone with information that will lead to an arrest. You can submit an anonymous tip to police at
