Elk Grove Village police are asking for the public's help in locating a 22-year-old Elk Grove Village college student who disappeared Saturday night in Chicago.

Syed "Zain" Naqi, 22, a political science student at Roosevelt University in Chicago, has not been seen since leaving the Rebel Bar and Grill at 3462 N. Clark St. late Saturday night. His family reported him missing Monday.

Zain Naqi was last seen wearing a red T-shirt and blue jeans. He drives a 4-door dark green Honda Civic.

The car has not been found. Elk Grove police, which have sent detectives into Chicago to investigate, say they do not know if Zain Naqi just chose to take off or if something has happened to him.

Police have checked whether Naqi drove to Des Moines, where he was formerly a student at Drake University, to no avail.

Zain Naqi's Facebook page has not been updated since the first week of April, according to Elk Grove Village Deputy Police Chief Michael Kirkpatrick.

Elk Grove Village police ask that any information about Syed "Zain" Naqi's whereabouts should be directed to them at (847) 357-4100.
