Police and volunteers on Thursday continued to look for a 48-year-old Schaumburg woman who went missing last weekend.

Family and friends have not heard from Beata Candre since Saturday, and they say she has a medical condition that leads them to be concerned about her well-being.

On Wednesday night, police met with between 50 and 60 volunteers who were busy Thursday posting missing person fliers at high traffic areas, and at restaurants and grocery stores throughout the North and West suburbs and Northwest side of Chicago, said Schaumburg police Sgt. John Nebl.

A Facebook page also has been set up to provide updates on the search.

Nebl said police don't know where Candre was going, but one guess is the Northwest side of Chicago -- specifically the Oriole Park neighborhood, where she grew up.

That's where Candre went when she was reported missing once before, for about two days in late August, Nebl said. At that time she left under similar circumstances on her own accord, and later called to ask her husband to pick her up, Nebl 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 ARH648.

Anyone who sees Candre or her vehicle is asked to call 911 or Schaumburg Police Department Investigations at (847) 882-3534.
