FBI Searching for Man Seen in Facebook Live at Concert Where Gary Woman Disappeared

The FBI is searching for a 38-year-old man who appeared in a Facebook Live posted by a missing Gary woman during a concert where she was last seen. 

Authorities said they are looking to question James McGhee, of Gary, in the death of 27-year-old Sidne-Nichole Buchanan, who went missing on July 27 after attending a concert in Tinley Park. According to the FBI, McGhee was the last person Buchanan was known to be with before she disappeared. 

The FBI in Indianapolis confirmed McGhee is the same person seen in a Facebook Live video posted by Buchanan during the concert, just before she disappeared. 

The Cook County Medical Examiner's office later confirmed and identified the body found in the Thornton Lansing Road Nature Preserve Monday as Buchanan's.

The office also said a cause and manner of death were pending following an autopsy that was conducted Tuesday. 

The FBI is offering up to a $10,000 reward for information leading to the whereabouts of McGhee. 

McGhee is described as standing 5 feet, 9 inches tall, weighing 235 pounds with brown eyes and black hair. He is known to frequent Gary and Hammond in Indiana as well as Chicago. 

Anyone with information is being asked to call the FBI at (219) 942-4655.
