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.
