Police investigating the mysterious disappearance of a pregnant 26-year-old Chicago postal worker now say they suspect "possible foul play", and the reward for information in the case has risen to more than $28,000. A surveillance video captured her walking up and down the street the morning she vanished. According to WLS TV, surveillance video from Chatham on the city's South Side where Coles lives, walking past her auto in her U.S. Postal Service uniform, even though she had called in sick that day.

Coles, 26, was last seen on the night of October 2, near 81st and Vernon in the Chatham neighborhood, according to her family. "She wouldn't have me worrying like this".

"Whoever it might be knows something", her father Joseph Coles told WLS. That location is about 3 miles away from where WLS reported Coles lives.

Her family said they found her auto parked on her block, with her cell phone and purse still inside. She said when the two did talk on October 2, her daughter told her how happy and emotional she was to hear her baby's heart beating.

"We talk all the time".
