Help Find Irma Sabanovic!
Hello, cao, zdravo! This fund was created to amass a reward for details on the disappearance (and safe return) of Irma (Ira) Sabanovic. Also, we want to help her sister, Amra Sabanovic, get to the U.S. as quickly as possible (she is currently in Sarajevo, Bosnia). Hopefully her disappearance will continue to get media attention and this can only help. If you know Ira personally, please feel free to share your story of how you know her in the comments section.
Irma Sabanovic, aka Ira Blackbird, got lost driving her blue, 4-door Ford Focus [IL plate A46 5569] near Milwaukee and Erie in Chicago's near west side around 2am on Thursday, May 12th. She hasn't been heard from since. If you see or have seen a car or woman matching these descriptions, please call detectives at (312) 744-8266. More details on her disappearance are available here: http://tinyurl.com/6ess9qn
I am in regular contact with Amra via Skype, and she wholeheartedly thanks everyone in advance for the generous support. All monies collected will be disbursed to Amra Sabanovic, and she and her father will decide how the funds will be used (private investigation? reward offer? etc.). Amra saw the 10pm news on NBC tonight (5/17) via Skype video and my computer screen pointed towards the TV... she was so moved by the grassroots search effort that took place starting at Milwaukee and Erie!
If you can't donate, you can also help by spreading the word on all social media outlets including Facebook and Twitter. Thank you for everything!
Also, thank you to everyone who donated to the fund and to those still contributing to help Irma's family with expenses. We hoped that the money would be used to help find Irma safe and sound, but instead it will take her home to Sarajevo so she can rest in peace.
I feel like a writer who lost her dictionary today, and I'm just sorry I couldn't give you better words.
Thanks to everyone who is perpetuating the search; more important than the money is a positive attitude that we will find Irma and also the drive to keep the search alive.
Veoma zalosno..Neka joj ragi Allah podari Dzennet.
Hope they find her Just a reminder people . We also appreciate your support and concern for the animals we help . Please continue . Thank you
I'm very shocked to read, that she is gone. I can't believe it. I had the pleasure in Summer 2010 to know her in her own town, Sarajevo/Hrasno and during the trips in BiH. A big lost for the Family, Friends. I don't have words for it. Rest in Peace, dear Irma (Ira Blacbird) and that God will save your soul.
Family may want to consult a lawyer for a lawsuit of wrongful death against the city. They knew for decades about the street ending in river and did not put up any barrier or reflective signs to warn motorists of this. An article I read said 20 yrs ago same thing happened on the other side of river and only after that young man was killed did the city put up barriers and warnings. On Monday, 5/23 city started putting up barriers and signs - so well after another innocent life was lost.
R.I.P. IRA Ti ne znas da vec danima sanjam istog leptira, samo svjetiljke nisu iste ili se bar budim sa nadom da nisu. On nema nicega po cemu bi ga prepoznao , sem malog oziljka na LIJEVOM KRILU, a meni je i to dovoljno. Znam trebalo je da bude proljece, a bila je jesen a splavu meduz i nije bilo sjaja u travi.....
Rest in peace my beautiful diamnod. I will forever miss you, and your beautiful smile. I I'll never forget you.
"If we could see the miracle of a single flower clearly,our whole life would change" Buddha Samo da kazem: "Andjele zadovoljstvo mi je da sam vidjela tvoje lice na slikama i da sam zakljucila da si bila "posebna" individua... Rest in peace <3
Tesko je naci rijeci u kojim bi se mogle naci rijeci utjehe za ozaloscenu porodicu...Draga Irma,pocivaj u miru...svi smo mi pogodjeni ovom tragedijom neovisno kom narodu pripadamo.Nadam se da makar nase rijeci ublazavaju bol tvojim sekama i tati!
Hvala svima na podrsci. U ovom trenutku mi je mala utjeha da vidim kako su ljudi voljeli moju sestru Iru i zamolila bi ljude da se suzdrze od nepotrebnih komentara.
NOCI SU PREKRATKE ZA ONE KOJI UMIJU DA SANJAJU. a SNOVI SU NEKA TOLIKO STVARNI DA OSTAJU UREZANI U KOZU. MIRISETE POSLIJE NA NJIH NOSITE IH UVIJEK SA SOBOM KAO DRAGI PRIVJESAK DRAGOJ IRMI
Neka joj drahi Allah dz.s. podari lijepi dzenet. Nadali smo se da cujemo bolju vijest. Nazalost dogodilo se ono najgore. Svi smo posjetioci na ovome svijetu. Molim sve ljude dobre volje da nastave sa donacijama. Sokirali smo se kad su nam javili da stanemo sa potragom danas. Zalosno. Cuvajte se!
Nisam poznavala djevojku ali kad sam cula sta se desilo jako mi je zao, i svaki cas sam mislila da ce se pronaci ziva, da ce nas sviju obradovati. Nemogu da vjerujem sve ovo i jako mi je zao nje i njene familije.
Meant to say wish money was "not" being used for end of irma's life.
Please continue with donations if u can donate. This tragedy is not over for Irma's family. They have gone through so much with the loss of mom and now this. It breaks my heart! Note for just honest - if money could bring this young life back I would take a loan out and sign to pay for it for the rest of my life! And I don't even know Irma. I wish the money is to be used for celebration of her life and for the end of it! You should be ashamed of yourself you pathetic shithead!
R.I.P. Lili Vanili... I neka ti Allah Dz. S. podari ljepote dzenneta..
Ma da smo svi ocekivali bolju vijest, ali od Boga je sta je da je. Neka je dragi Allah dz.s. uvede u Dzennetske basce, a njenoj familiji zelim sve najbolje u ovim teskim trenutcima.
Neka joj Allah DZ. podari vjecit rahmet. a njenoj porodici olaksa bol i tugu..
She has been found. It is a tragedy. :(
ALAHU MOJ NE MOZE BITI LAHKOCE MIMO ONOGA STO TI NE UCINIS.TI AKO HOCES I TESKO UCINIS LAHKIM.MOLIM TI SE USLISI NASE MOLITVE I VRATI NAM IRMU ZIVU IZDRAVU.
