Search For Morgan Farley In Chicago Continues


There’s lots of adjectives Sam Farley would use to describe his daughter — fun, energetic, smart and ambitious. 


She studied architecture in college, he said. However, she’s struggled with her mental health the past few years, and has been listless since being diagnosed with depression, he said.  


“I felt the heaviness,” Farley told the Tribune. “I had to fight to keep the heaviness off of me.” 


Morgan Farley, 25, has been missing since April 3, according to Chicago police, and her dad says he’s relying on friends and prayer to hopefully bring her home, a situation that’s all too familiar for families of Black and brown women and girls in the city.


Morgan went missing in the 1300 block of West 110th Street in Morgan Park. She’s described as being about 5 feet, 10 inches tall, weighing 160 pounds, with brown eyes and black hair. She was later seen over Mother’s Day weekend in a vehicle with an unknown man at Ada Park, police said.


On April 2, Farley said he went downstairs around 7 a.m. and saw Morgan, who he lives with, walk outside, figuring she was stepping out to smoke a cigarette. But when Farley got back to his house a few hours later, he noticed that the potato she cut up for breakfast was still sitting on the kitchen counter. 


“The next morning, I took a more thorough look and I said if she doesn’t show up till after I do the prayer call, then I’ll go to the police station,” he said. 


However, Farley struggled to get attention from police on the case, as first reported in Capital B News. He said it took more than a week to get ahold of the assigned detective after filling out a missing persons report on April 3. The Police Department posted a flyer on April 16. Although Farley said he knows police have a lot of people to worry about, the process seemed “very slow and drawn out.”
