Kierra Coles was last seen Oct. 2.

Local media reports there is surveillance video from Chatham on the city's South Side where Coles lives, walking past her car in her U.S. Postal Service uniform, even though she had called in sick that day.

Coles' mother, Karen Phillips, called police to report her missing two days later.

She said she became concerned that her daughter hadn't called her and that her calls to her daughter's number went straight to voicemail.

Police went to Coles' home to conduct a well-being check and didn't find her, but saw that her car was parked out front.

The U.S. Postal Service has offered a $25,000 reward for information on Coles' whereabouts and is assisting in the investigation into her disappearance.
