JOLIET, Ill. (CBS) — A social service agency that helps people with disabilities is reaching out to the public for help in finding a young Crest Hill woman who has been missing for more than two weeks.

As WBBM Newsradio’s Steve Miller reports, Sandy Bravo, 23, has been missing since Oct. 26. No one from the agency, Cornerstone Services of Joliet, has seen or spoken to her since.

“We’re like her family in many ways,” said Cornerstone spokesman Matthew Lanoue. “She has family, but we work with her.”

Lanoue says Bravo has special needs and is vulnerable.

“She’s very friendly and is willing to ask people for help,” Lanoue said, “and that might not be to her advantage right now.”

She is believed to have gone to Chicago on her own two weeks ago, and was last seen near the Chicago Transit Authority’s Blue and Green lines.

Lanoue says Bravo is believed to be out of money. He also believes her cell phone is likely dead, not having been charged in the past few days.

“Really, we just want to know she’s OK,” Lanoue said. “Even if she doesn’t want to come back home right now, we just want to hear from her. That she’s OK.”

Bravo has brown hair and brown eyes, stands 5 feet 3 inches tall, and weighs 115 pounds.

Anyone with information about Bravo’s whereabouts is asked to call Crest Hill Police at (815)741-5115 or Cornerstone Services at (815) 545-8251.
