    Erica Thompson (53) missing from Brookfield, IL since 10/1/19

    https://www.nbcchicago.com/news/loca...563571401.html

    Erica Thompson, 53, was reported missing on Oct. 1, and listed as ?endangered? in a news release issued on Oct. 5 by the Brookfield Police Department.

    Thompson?s son, Michael Russo, said that when he went to check on his mother, he found the back door of her home open with the air conditioning ?running at full blast.? He said there were moldy dishes in the sink, and cat vomit was everywhere.

    Russo said it was unlike his mother, a comptroller for a local company, to not show up at work, or check in with her family.

    ?Just a lot of things that don?t add up and don?t make sense,? he said. ?Not in her character.?

    The Brookfield woman?s family told NBC 5 she lived alone after breaking up with her boyfriend. In the news release, police said they knocked on every door in the surrounding area, checked video footage and utilized several police K-9s.

    Thompson?s vehicle is a dark purple 2014 Nissan Juke with Illinois license plate #E273380. Her son added that while it appears purple in the sun, the SUV normally looks faded black or brown on the road.
    Thompson?s family members have been busy handing out fliers, hoping to find any information that will lead them to her. Anyone with information about her whereabouts is encouraged to contact Brookfield Police at 708-244-4862.

    A reward has been offered as police and the family members of a missing suburban woman continue to search for answers in her disappearance.

    Erica Thompson, 53, was last seen two months ago near the intersection of Maple St. and Washington St. in Brookfield.

    Crime Stoppers is now offering a $1,000 reward in the search for Thompson.

    The group will join police in handing out flyers Saturday at Veterans Memorial Circle in Brookfield, which is near where she was last seen in late September.

    Her dark purple 2014 Nissan Juke is also missing.

    Erica Thompson has been missing for three months, and her family says all signs point to foul play.

    “There’s so much that doesn’t add up,” Erica’s sister, Dana Kujawski, told Dateline. “She wouldn’t have just left. Right now, all signs point to foul play. But we’re trying to hold on to the hope we have left.”

    Dana said her 53-year-old sister had been living alone at her Brookfield, Illinois home, after having been in a two-year relationship.

    She said the last time she heard from her Erica was by email on September 23.

    A few days later, Erica was nowhere to be found. When she did not show up for work that week, her family grew concerned.

    Erica’s only son, Michael Russo, told NBC Chicago in October that it was unlike his mother to not show up at work, or check in with her family. Erica was employed as a comptroller at Empire Hard Chrome Inc., in Chicago.

    “Just a lot of things that don’t add up and don’t make sense,” Michael said. “Not in her character.”

    On October 1, 2019, Michael went to check on his mother, and he found the back door of her home open with the air conditioning “running at full blast.” He told NBC Chicago there were moldy dishes in the sink and cat vomit was everywhere.

    “It was cause for concern because my sister would have never left a mess,” Dana told Dateline. “She would have washed her dishes and taken care of her cats.”

    Family members reported Erica missing that day.

    Erica’s vehicle was also missing. It’s a dark purple 2014 Nissan Juke with Illinois license plate #E27 3380. Her son added that while it appears purple in the sun, the SUV normally looks faded black or brown on the road.

    According to a Brookfield Police news release, Erica was last seen on security video on September 25, 2019, driving the Nissan near Veterans Memorial Circle in Brookfield. She is considered by police to be an “endangered” missing person.

    Investigators were able to ping Erica’s phone and discovered that it had traveled through several nearby communities, and as far as Missouri, early on September 26, according to the news release.

    In the news release, police said they knocked on every door in the area surrounding where Erica was last seen, checked video footage and utilized several police K-9s. Family and friends gathered at Veterans Memorial Circle and handed out missing person fliers.

    Dana said the family is just trying to keep Erica’s bills paid and care for her cats, but fear the worst has happened to her.

    “Something happened to her. And someone knows something,” Dana said. “We’re still hoping that she just left to find herself… But that window of hope is getting smaller.”

    According to NBC Chicago, a local businessman contacted Brookfield Police in November and offered to put out a missing person’s message about Erica on digital billboards throughout the Chicago area for free.

    "It is unimaginable having your sister on a billboard, but anything we can do to help find her," Dana said.
