At only four-years-old, Sheila Renee Quinn had a full life ahead of her. However, in 1980, her family became the subject of controversy after the little girl reportedly disappeared from her home, and because there are so few details shared about her case until this day, this missing person case has turned into another Chicago mystery.

The circumstances surrounding the disappearance of Sheila Renee Quinn are unknown. What has been shared is that the four-year-old and her family lived on the ninth floor of the Harold Ickes Homes housing projects in Chicago. On February 27, 1980, Sheila’s family reported her missing. The last time the child was seen was in her bedroom. Foul play is suspected, but whether or not there were suspects or persons of interest related to this case is unclear. It also hasn’t been publicly reported if investigators believe that she was abducted, wandered off, or was the victim of something caused by someone closer to home.
