A British family has offered a $5,000 reward to anyone who can help them find a 26-year-old man who went missing while visiting Chicago over the weekend.

Ademola Owolana, 26, was last seen at Club Low Key in the city’s West Pullman neighborhood around 4 a.m. Saturday.

He had went out with friends Friday to the nightclub at East 117th Street and South Michigan Avenue and never made it back to his relatives’ Glenwood home, according to police.

His mother, Bolanle Owolana, was also in town from London at the time of the disappearance. Her concern and fear has grown by the hour after he never came home to her niece’s house where they were staying in Chicago’s south suburbs.

“I just want to find my son,” his mother said. “I need help. I need help in getting him back to London. I need help, I need help."

Owolana was wearing a dark green jacket, a baseball cap, and a distinctive gold chain Friday night, police said.

His friends say he ran off and was acting aggressively when they told him he couldn't drive home without an ID.

Sheriff Akinoso was the last person to see Owalan, and says the group thought surely he would turn up outside the club.

“I'm just worried,” Akinoso said. “It was a joke, you know? He's new, he's from London. Now it's getting more serious."

Owolana was without his phone and passport when he vanished, and was only carrying cash, friends said.

Anyone who believes they may have seen Owolana is urged to contact the Glenwood Police Department or call 911 to report the missing person.
