COPS are searching for a missing Chicago mother who vanished just days before her daughter’s graduation.
Surveillance video saw dental office employee Rena Baker, 39, leaving her friend’s house last Wednesday in Chatham, Chicago before getting into a maroon Hyundai Sonata with Illinois license plate Z709627.
Rena’s brother Andre said that this “doesn’t make sense” as “she could have gone straight down Kings Drive to get home.”
The mother-of-three – who’s “always there on time” – was supposed to pick up her son from school and celebrate her daughter’s graduation.
Rena is an African American woman with black hair and brown eyes who’s 5’3″ tall and 130 pounds.
Police urge anyone with information to contact CPD’s Special Victims Unit at 312-747-8274.
