Police: Missing man seemed `very agitated` when last seen

Posted: Updated:
CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) -

Police say a 25-year-old man who was last seen early Sunday at a North Halsted Street bar appeared "very agitated" and not acting like himself as he ran down the street near the bar in the Lake View neighborhood.

Christopher Evans was last seen about 1:30 a.m. Sunday at Roscoe's bar in the 3300 block of North Halsted Street, according to an alert from Area North detectives.

His friends told police that when they last saw him, he was not acting like himself and seemed very agitated.

"Christopher told them there was danger all around and something bad was going to happen and that they had to get away from him and they say he shot off like a bolt of lightning and that was the last anybody saw of him," Christopher's mother, Anita Evans, told FOX 32 News.

He was last seen running east on Roscoe and has since had no contact with friends or family.

Christopher's mother says his disappearance is not something he would do purposely.

"His radical behavior, the way he changed, they said that they had never seen him behave like that before because he's very quiet and mild mannered," Anita explains. 'They said they knew that somebody must have put something in his drink."

On Wednesday afternoon, family members, friends and fellow classmates put up missing person fliers near Roscoe's.

Evans is a graduate student and financial analyst at Loyola University.

"He did not come to work Monday or Tuesday," Christopher's classmate, Meridith Ewers says. "The thing that's kind of concerning us is that it's a busy weekend, we had the Blackhawks parade and rally and then the Pride was Sunday afternoon so it's kind of disconcerting to us that he went missing off of the street."

Evans is described as a gentle giant - cool, calm and collected.  His brother says his disappearance doesn't make sense.

"I have no idea where he would go," Jason Evans says.

"Everybody feels like something bad happened that weekend and I just want to find my son," Anita pleads.

Evans is a black man, about 6-feet tall, 220 pounds, with a medium complexion and brown eyes. When last seen he was wearing a black button-down dress shirt with a white T-shirt underneath, and blue jeans.

If anyone has seen him they are asked to contact Area North Special Victims Unit detectives, at (312) 744-8200.

    Heavily armed police officers descended on a home in Long Beach, Long Island, Tuesday afternoon thinking they might find a grisly murder scene. Instead they found a terrified woman who had no clue what they were talking about and her teenaged son playing video games. "We received a phone call from a gentleman who stated he had just shot his mother and his brother," Long Beach Police Commissioner Michael Tangney said. "Unfortunately, this is a terrible national problem for law enforcement."

    An NYPD plan intended to better connect with the community seems to have backfired a bit. The police department asked its twitter followers to share pictures of themselves with New York City police officers using the hashtag "myNYPD." Some did share nice pictures, but others not so much.Some of the first pictures posted showed regular citizens standing with very friendly looking police officers.
