The family of a 21-year-old woman who has been missing for months said she was found dead on Chicago’s Southwest Side, according to family members.

Relatives of Rosa Chacon say her body was found in a shopping cart, tied up and wrapped in sheets in an alley, according to local ABC 7.

“I miss my baby,” her father, Jose Lucio, told the outlet. “Normally, when our daughter leaves, we hear from her. She calls the next day; she calls an hour after she leaves; she’s in a house, she’s secure, she’s nice and warm. But we didn’t hear anything.”

According to the outlet, the 21-year-old woman was last seen by her family outside her home on January 18.

The home security camera video shows Chacon getting into a rideshare in the 2800 block of South St. Louis Avenue.

Chacon’s family said she took nothing with her, including her coat or ID.

The family told ABC 7 that they contacted the police after Chacon went missing, but said the response from law enforcement was quite discouraging, with investigators telling her parents that their daughter was likely a runaway.

Her remains were sent to the medical examiner for an autopsy to determine the manner and cause of death.
