25-Year-Old Rogers Park Woman Vanishes

CHICAGO (STMW) — Police are looking for a 25-year-old Rogers Park woman last heard from after getting lost last week while heading to a Near West Side nightclub.

Irma Sabanovic left her home in the 1900 block of West Hood Avenue on May 12 with the intention of going to the Exit nightclub near Elston and North, a missing persons alert from Belmont Area Special Victims Unit detectives said.

At 2 a.m., she texted a male friend that she was lost near Milwaukee and Erie. That was the last communication from Sabanovic, the alert said. She was driving a blue four-door Ford Focus with Illinois plate A465569.

News of the woman’s disappearance frightens neighbors.

“It’s crazy.  It could have been me.  You know, I live right here.  I went to the same place,” the young woman’s neighbor, Aida Halilovic, told CBS 2’s Pamela Jones.

“We’re really even scared to go to a park with our kids,” area resident Sanela Uzejrovic. “This woman is Bosnian, and something like this hits our community hard.”

Sabanovic is 5-foot-10 and 120 pounds with brown eyes and brown hair. She is white with a medium complexion, and has a tattoo that says “Minge” on her right forearm and a tattoo of a star on her back.

Anyone with information about her or her car should call detectives at (312) 744-8266.

    they aren’t saying it is, they are saying where she went missing and where she is from… two different thoughts.

  • Bickell

    Sorry, Its Rogers Park. I call it “robbers park”

  • Sandy

    Where she went missing and where she lives are miles apart…not sure why everyone has to get the attention back on them “this could happen to me, we live right next door to each other”…this could happen to anyone. Get over yourself. I really hope she is found safe. Thoughts and prayers with her loved ones.

      I’m very shocked to read that this young pretty women has gone away. I had the pleasure to know her in 2010, in her own town with her elder sister, Sarajevo/Hrasno. I will miss here and only memories are left. God bless her and that he will receive her soul. Rest in Peace Dear Irma.
      The Dutch, Theo.
