A Chicago family is desperately searching for any information about a 26-year-old pregnant letter carrier who went missing about two weeks ago. She is three months pregnant with her first child.

A neighbor's surveillance video captured her walking past her vehicle in her work uniform, CNN affiliate WLS reported.

Coles, 26, was last seen on October 2 in the Chatham neighborhood, CBS Chicago reports. "She wouldn't have me worrying like this".

Community activist Andrew Holmes said he was also offering a $1,000 reward and the National Association of Letter Carriers was offering a $2,500 reward. "Let us know", her father, Joseph Coles, told WLS. That location is about 3 miles away from where WLS reported Coles lives.

Coles' family said it's unlike her to just disappear.

"I talk to her every day".

Her father, meanwhile, is reported to be living out of a auto parked outside his daughter's home, hoping that Coles will return and vowing not to leave until she is found. "Never, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine days".

Coles' mother, Karen Phillips, told WLS that she last spoke with her daughter on October 2. "So I said, okay she's probably just in there, maybe she's asleep or - I don't know, I just didn't feel right".

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.

"Our thoughts and prayers are with Kierra and her family, and like everyone else we hope for a positive outcome to this situation", Mack Julion, the president of the Chicago branch of the National Association of Letter Carriers, told the Chicago Sun-Times in a statement.

Joseph Coles came from Wisconsin to search for his daughter and has been passing out flyers about Cole who is a Black woman, 5-foot-4 and about 125 pounds with black hair and brown eyes.

Keisha Phillips said she's had many sleepless nights over his sister's disappearance. She has a tattoo of a heart on her right hand and another that says "Lucky Libra" on her back.
