Police search for clues in case of woman last seen Jan. 3


The Park Forest Police Department has concern about the whereabouts of a 31-year-old resident who has not been seen or heard from since late Sunday evening. On January 5, 2016, Brenda Jackson, of the 200 block of Arcadia St. in Park Forest, was reported missing by her husband and mother. Ms. Jackson was last seen in the late evening hours on Sunday, January 3, 2016 at her home when she was dropped off by a relative. She is described as a Hispanic female, approximately 5 feet tall and 125 pounds. Ms. Jackson has a scar on her upper chest and star tattoos on both sides of her neck. She also has a heart tattooed on her ring finger and a tattoo that says "Michael” on her left inner wrist. She is not known to have left in any particular vehicle.

If anyone has seen or been in contact with Ms. Jackson, they are urged to call the Park Forest Police Department Investigations Division at 708-748-1309.

In posting about adults who are reported missing, the public is reminded that an adult voluntarily leaving is not a criminal act, and that privacy concerns of an adult reported missing are always weighed against informing the public. Generally, the public is not informed until other investigative steps have been exhausted or if there are articulable reasons to be concerned for the individual’s safety. The public is also reminded that there is no minimum waiting time to report a person missing, and that investigation into the person’s whereabouts begins immediately.
