It was locked in the backyard at my boyfriends around a wooden post holding the house up on Diversey and Sheffield. I came back from work to find it gone. This is the 2nd day I’ve taken my bike out... so luck isn’t on my side... I’m worried it was one of the neighbors. There’s a back alley someone could’ve seen the yellow from. But it was the first night I ever locked my bike at my boyfriends so I find it hard to believe it was also the one night a bike thief checked his yard. Person who lives downstairs left his unlocked bike in the same backyard for like a year and no one touched it...

How long was the bike locked in this location?: 
10 hours - but I went to check it was still there about 4 hours into that 10 hours and it was.
Incident Description: 
I rode my bike to work today and locked it in the same place I always do. There's a pedestrian passage way that goes from Dearborn to Clark to the south of the 55 W Wacker building. There's a wrought iron fence there with a small bike rack. My bike had its rear wheel resting in the rack and it's front wheel/handlebars resting on top of a thick wrought iron fence. There was an ABUS chain lock going through the frame, front wheel, and fence. I arrived around 8:30 AM and went to work. When I went to get lunch around noon I walked by and my bike was still locked to the fence, so the theft happened between 12 and 6 pm, when I left work. I would guess that happened before 5 since foot traffic increases quite a bit at 5 when people get out of work. When I discovered my bike was gone I went into the 55 W Wacker building and spoke to the security guard to see if maybe they'd have security footage but was told none of their cameras capture the sidewalks outside of the building.
