  • Details of Disappearance
    Sanders was a real estate agent and the owner of Black Man Group Realty in Chicago, Illinois in 1996. He was attempting to sell property located in the 1000 block of North Springfield Avenue on December 1, 1996. Sanders lived with his mother in the city and never returned home after his work day.

    Authorities learned Sanders called a business associate on his cellular phone on December 2, 1996, one day after he was last seen. This was the last known communication from Sanders and he apparently gave no indication that anything was amiss during the conversation.

    Sanders' 1995 Nissan sport utility van was discovered abandoned near his property on North Springfield Avenue shortly after December 4, 1996, the day his mother reported him as a missing person. There was no sign of Sanders at the scene and no traces of a struggle. Sanders has never been heard from again. Investigators do not believe foul play was involved in his disappearance. Sanders' family is concerned for his well-being. His case remains unsolved.
