Black and missing: these two Chicago teens have been missing since the summer
Police are asking for the public’s help in finding two 15-year-old Chicago girls who have been missing since the summer.
Destiny “Sweetie” Wilson was last seen June 15 at her home in the 2300 block of North Ashland in the city’s Lincoln Park neighborhood.
Wilson is a 5-foot-5, 130-pound black girl with brown eyes, long brown hair with blonde highlights and a light complexion, police said. She has a mole on her neck and may be carrying an oversized white handbag.
The teen is known to frequent areas near 52nd Street and Cottage Grove, Magnolia and Beacon and the 1500 block of West Fullerton, police said.
In August, Wilson’s friend, Maia Hunwick, was reported missing from the Washington Park neighborhood since July 14. Authorities said the two girls might be together.
Hunwick, also 15, was last seen in the 6000 block of South King Drive, police said at the time.
Hunwick is a 5-foot-4, 160-pound black girl with brown eyes, brown hair and a medium complexion.
Anyone with information is urged to contact Area Central detectives at (312) 747-8380.
We hope these girls are brought back safe and sound.
Very few reports have been written about these young girls. What can we do to get stories of the black and missing into the mainstream public’s eye?
