Have You Seen Nailah Franklin? Update #1

Nailah Franklin's company car and some of her personal belongings were found yesterday near an abandoned warehouse in Hammond, Indiana. Still no sign of Nailah. Police authorities also searched a pond at a nearby golf course.

Noticeably, law enforcement has not released the name of the man that recently threatened Nailah. That man apparently has a history of threatening women.

Nailah's family remains positive in this situation.

The family of a Chicago woman who disappeared five days ago held out hope Saturday that she is still alive even after police found her car in Hammond.

Police found Nailah Franklin's vehicle near an abandoned building and recovered some of her personal belongings there. The information led them to a nearby pond at a golf course, but they did not find anything there, authorities said.

Franklin, 28, an Eli Lilly and Co. pharmaceutical representative, has been missing since Tuesday.
