Police are searching for Brenda Gilbertson, a Wisconsin woman who went missing early Sunday after going out with a friend in the Wrigleyville neighborhood on the North Side.

Gilbertson, 38, came to Chicago from her home in northern Wisconsin to attend some classes, according to a missing person alert from Chicago Police. She went out Saturday night with a friend and was last seen about 2:30 a.m. Sunday near Addison and Clark.
