FBI Indianapolis' Resident Agency reports that 27-year-old Sidne-Nichole Buchanan, of Gary, is still missing. She was last seen Saturday, July 27.

The agency says they are dedicating all of the resources available to find her.

Although Buchanan was last seen in Illinois, the FBI presumes she was taken across state lines to Indiana against her will.


The FBI is offering up to a $10,000 reward for help finding a woman missing from Gary who is thought to have been kidnapped.

The FBI's Merrillville Resident Agency Gang Response Investigative Team, or GRIT, is asking for the public's help finding 27-year-old Sidne-Nichole Buchanan, who was last seen at a concert in Tinley Park, Illinois, on Saturday, July 27.

Buchanan's family reported her missing Monday, July 29, saying she has never disappeared like this in the past.

Buchanan is 5 feet, 1 inch tall and 135 pounds with black hair. The FBI says she was last seen wearing a purple dress, denim jacket, several necklaces, a bracelet and a hair clip. She has tattoos on both forearms.

Anyone with information on what happened to Buchanan is asked to call the FBI at 219-942-4655. Tips may remain anonymous.
