How long was the bike locked in this location?:
The bike was locked to a metal bike rack at the intersection of Wacker and Dearborn in downtown Chicago at the south east corner of the bridge (next to the Riverwalk entrance). I had locked the bike securely with a U lock to the metal pole via the rear wheel and bike frame at around 1pm on 9/4/2020. When I returned to the scene at about 3pm I found the bike and lock missing. Instead there was another blue old bike parked in its location. This bike was not locked so I suspect the person who rode this bike left it at the spot and stole my bike instead.
