Nailah Franklin Update - Hunt Intensifies

Click here for most recent update.

This lovely young lady is Nailah Franklin. As of 19th September, she has been missing.

Nailah Franklin is 5′2″ and weighs about 115 lbs. She worked as a pharmaceutical rep for Eli Lilly. She was smart, geeky, apparently a feminist, and graduated from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Two computers were, apparently, missing from her condo, and someone (maybe herself, maybe someone else) used her telephone to text a message to her boyfriend when he called her at 8:15 the evening before she was reported missing, stating that she was in the middle of dinner and could not take his call. (???)

If you come across her, police ask that you call (312) 746-9259 without delay.

The man who threatened her apparently has a habit of threatening women, and a woman he previously dated took out a restraining order against him. According to the Chicago Sun-Times, the man has a criminal record.

New Update 09/24: It is possible that Nailah has been transported across state lines. The FBI is now involved. If you see her, or know anything about this crime, please contact the authorities. You can call (312) 746-9259. As the FBI is also now involved, you might try contacting them as well.

Forensic tests are being conducted on Franklin's car, and detectives are checking security tapes from the building where she lived.
High-tech equipment from federal authorities will be brought in to assist police in the investigation into a missing Chicago businesswoman, officials said Monday.
Let's hope she is OK and soon returned to her family.
