Chicago news, Illinois news.

Illinois authorities are investigating after finding the dead body of a woman in a local forest on Tuesday.

The body is believed to be that of a missing woman who has been kidnapped on July 27. She was identified as 27-year-old Sidne-Nichole Buchanan. She was last seen at a concert in Tinley Park. "Our investigation has revealed that Sidne was last seen in Illinois but we have evidence that she was in Indiana after that," said FBI agent Mike Peasley. "The presumption is she was taken across state lines against her will until we find evidence to the contrary."

Authorities did not confirm that the body found in the forest belongs to Buchanan as they await autopsy results conducted on Tuesday.
