Schaumburg police are asking for the public's help in finding a missing woman who may be in danger.

Beata Candre, 48, was reported missing by her family on Saturday, according to police. Candre, a wife and mother, has a medical condition that leads police and her family to be concerned about her well-being, police said.

Candre is a white female with brown hair and blue eyes. She is 5 feet, 3 inches tall and weighs about 170 pounds. She was last seen wearing a black shirt, black sweatpants and white gym shoes and drives a black 1994 Jeep Grand Cherokee with the Illinois license plate ARAH648.

Sgt. John Nebl of the Schaumburg Police Department said between 50 and 60 volunteers who have formed a grass-roots effort to find Candre met Wednesday night at St. Hubert's Church in Hoffman Estates.

"It was amazing," he said of the turnout, adding that a friend of Candre's organized the meeting and asked Schaumburg police to be in attendance.

"We told them the best thing they can do to help is get the word out," Nebl said, adding that he handed out about 750 missing person fliers and asked residents to place them in high-traffic areas throughout northwest Chicago and the north and west suburbs.

Nebl said Candre went missing once before, for about two days in late August. Anyone who sees Candre or her vehicle is asked to call 911 or Schaumburg Police Department Investigations at (847) 882-3534.
