On the night of Oct. 2, 2018, video footage shows Coles, then 26 and three months pregnant, entering her home in the 8100 block of South Vernon Avenue. She later leaves the home, with a man police identified as a person of interest, and drove away.
Minutes later, video footage shows Coles getting money out of an ATM. An hour later, her vehicle stops in another part of the city and the person of interest exits the passenger side seat, but no one leaves the driver's side.

On Oct. 4, Coles’ mother Karen Phillips asked police to search her apartment, but she was not found.
