    MISSING: Chaunti Bryla, 43, From Avalon Park


    A family is pleading for help finding a missing woman from the Avalon Park neighborhood.

    She was last seen at her home near 85th and Bennett on March 14. Family members say they suspect foul play in Bryla’s disappearance, in part, because her bank account has been emptied.

    Also, they insist she would never abandon her 11-year-old son.

    Her family adds, there has been no activity on Bryla’s Facebook account since March 14.

    Where’s the police urgency over this missing Chicago woman?

    Deana Balfour is a friend of a missing South Side woman, and she is really frustrated.

    Her friend Chaunti N. Bryla, 43, was last seen on March 14. A missing person’s report was filed with the police on March 18, and a detective was assigned to the case.

    Flyers bearing the missing woman’s photograph were circulated in her South Side neighborhood, and two local news stations picked up the story. Bryla’s close-knit family even gave police a lead on a possible person of interest.

    But there’s been no arrest.

    “We talked to the detectives last night, and they keep saying they are working on it,” Balfour told me. “But that is not sufficient. She has been gone for almost four weeks. That is not normal behavior. And she did not live a hazardous lifestyle.”

    The missing woman’s family suspects that someone known to them was involved in the woman’s disappearance.

    “She had just gotten her income-tax check.” Balfour said. “The individual is on a surveillance video that shows him getting money out of the ATM, and her account is now totally empty. Police have not picked him up even though he has a history of battery to other women.

    “This is just disheartening. There are so many girls missing or getting killed, the community has become numb.”

    There’s something terribly wrong with our priorities when a pregnant woman disappears in the heart of the South Side and the city hums along as if it didn’t happen.

    And there’s something incredibly cold about a city where a mother can vanish from her home, leaving her purse on the kitchen table, and there’s no public outcry for answers.

    “This family needs CPD to put the same efforts in finding Chaunti as they do for high-profile cases,” Balfour said. “This is a travesty that CPD has not made the effort in finding this woman and the others in Chicago still missing.”

    I think that CPD is overwhelmed. Crime in the city is way over the top. This doesn't excuse the problem, but it explains it. Now what will the citizens of the city do with the information? If it were me, I'd get a group together to storm every single city council meeting until they start discussing SOLUTIONS to the ever-growing problems!

    Rep. Bobby Rush holds meeting after dozens of women found strangled to death in Chicago

    POSTED 5:22 PM, JUNE 6, 2019, BY GAYNOR HALL, UPDATED AT 09:28PM, JUNE 6, 2019

    CHICAGO — U.S. Rep Bobby Rush (D-1st) held a meeting Thursday evening to address concerns about the dozens of women found strangled to death on Chicago's South and West sides.

    The meeting was held Thursday at 6 p.m. at Northeastern Illinois University’s Carruthers Center for Inner City Studies.

    Community members have feared that a serial killer preying on women may be on the loose. Those concerned addressed the cases of missing women such as Kierra Coles and Chaunti Bryla.

    A disturbing video. A mysterious blue container. An AWOL parolee with a violent history. Chilling details surround the case of a missing Chicago woman

    Three days after Chaunti Bryla was reported missing earlier this year, a Lyft driver was called to a home in South Shore, where two people were waiting with a large blue plastic container and a dolly.

    The driver helped them load the container into his car, then drove them to a hotel in Calumet Park, where surveillance video shows the container being wheeled inside, according to court records.

    Detectives investigating the case visited the hotel about a week later — helped along by a tip from Bryla’s family. They found a container, like the one shown in the video, in an alley behind a strip mall near the hotel. Police seized the container, and in a search warrant said there was a “reasonable belief” that recovered evidence would be linked to Bryla, 43.

    Chicago police confirmed Wednesday they suspect foul play and are looking for one of the two men with the container — a parolee who attacked another woman several years ago with a pipe and hammer, then set her on fire.

    The Tribune is not naming the parolee because he hasn’t been criminally charged in Bryla’s disappearance. Illinois Department of Corrections records list him as an “absconder,” which means he has stopped remaining in contact with a parole officer.
