CHICAGO (WLS) — Karen Phillips says it never gets any easier.
“Every year, I hope I don’t have to come up, and stand up here and announce that my child is still not home yet,” Phillips said.
Her daughter, Kierra Coles, was 26 years old and three months pregnant when she went missing nearly five years ago. She was last seen in the city’s Chatham neighborhood. In June of last year, Chicago police released video of her last known movements. Police also pieced together a timeline of that October 2, 2018 night, which involved a person of interest.
“They said that they didn’t have a motive for, you know, the person that we feel like is involved,” Phillips said.
