We Need to Find Sheena!
Our family desperately needs your help! It's been months since Sheena has been missing and we still have no answers. Hopefully the private investigator who is working this case can uncover some information that the Chicago Police Department has not. We're counting on you to help us get there by your continued contributions. We love Sheena and want her found! Thank you again for your support!
We now know that Sheena was last seen in Chicago in the Rogers Park area near the intersection of Greenleaf and Sheridan on Nov. 5, 2021. It was the family's understanding that Sheena may be travelling to Davenport to see about her mother who is ill and was hospitalized at that time. Sheena stated on Nov. 3rd that she would "be down there tomorrow." No one in her family has heard from her since.
Sheena grew up near Davenport, Iowa and was very close to her family who live there. Sheena attended Truman College, Northeastern Illinois University and Spoon River College, where she was VP of Student Senate and graduated with honors.
Most recently, Sheena worked at UIC performing COVID test scheduling. She has also worked as a home health aide, a youth worker and a professional dance instructor.
Sheena had an avid interest in West African, Jamaican and Hip-Hop dance, and in the past has taught kids about diverse dance traditions and cultures.
Sheena survived cervical cancer at age 25 and has been an outspoken advocate for young survivors. In 2019, Sheena’s poetry was featured by the Lurie Cancer Center of Northwestern University as part of their Cancer Survivorship Institute to support youth survivors.
Sheena is passionate about social justice and spent years volunteering as an HIV/AIDS educator, ESL teacher, peace activist and raising money to bring clean water to drought-stricken areas of Africa. She worked with organizations like the AIDS Foundation of Chicago, 1000 Wells Project, American Friends Service Committee and the Chicagoland Bicycle Federation.
Loved ones describe Sheena as kind, joyful, strong-willed, positive, creative and someone who could easily connect with people from all walks of life.
