Family and friends of a Nailah Franklin held a prayer vigil in Chicago this weekend as police continue combing through clues for what happened to the 28-year-old pharmaceutical sales rep.
Franklin, who has been missing since last Tuesday, is about 5 feet 2 inches tall, weighs 110 pounds, and has brown hair and brown eyes and works for Eli Lilly & Co. Police say she left text messages for friends and family, which were both vague and uncharacteristic, saying she was having dinner and that she’d call later.
Earlier, TV station CBS2 in Chicago told police that Franklin’s friend, Dana McClellan, told police that Franklin had been receiving phone messages from a man she once dated.
“I heard it, I heard the message,” said McClellan. She said the message contained the following: “Basically ‘I could do harm to you. You haven’t seen that side, of me but I do have a bad side, and I could do harm to you.'”
Franklin’s sister, Lehia Franklin Acox, said the family is trying to stay positive as police search Franklin’s 2005 Chevrolet Impala for fingerprints and other clues.
