CPD seeks help in locating kidnap victim

Chicago Police Department ( CPD ) detectives are asking for the public's help in locating the victim of a probable kidnapping.

According to a case report released by the CPD, Joanna Wright ( 33 ) was last seen on Dec. 18 on 64th street between Talman and Rockwell Avenues in the West Englewood neighborhood of Chicago.

Around 1:00 am on the 18th, Wright was seen being thrown into a newer model blue Mazda with Ohio license plates by three-to-four unknown men.

Wright is described as a Black woman 5'2 inches tall and weighing 100lbs. She used the nicknames King Jino, Jojo and Duwop. CPD detectives have attempted to track Wright's phone to no avail.

Chicago Survivors crisis responder Dawn Valenti told Windy City Times she has reached out to Wright's family.

"Detectives are making some leeway," Valenti said.

According to Wright's social media page she was a student at Gage Park High School and Kennedy-King College and is an accomplished dread stylist. "My passion [has] always been hair," she wrote last year.

Indications are that Wright is an out lesbian who dressed androgynously. The CPD has not confirmed the clothing she was wearing on the night she was abducted.

A birthday party was held for her on Dec. 9 at Taste Entertainment near the campus of Kennedy-King College.

Karisia Marinese is a friend of Wrights.

"I've known her for years," she said. "She is a loyal and trusting person, always smiling, always laughing, always charismatic. When she set out to do something, she did it. We just want her to be safe and back home."

"We know the type of people that exist in this world," Marinese added. "So we are really concerned for her safety."

People with information about Wright are asked to contact CPD detectives at 312-747-8380.

People who may be uncomfortable reaching out to the CPD can also contact Karisia Marinese directly at 312-945-8439.
