Lorie Nichols

The search continues for a Red Deer woman that went missing more than five months ago and her family is desperately seeking answers into her disappearance.

Lorie Joy Nichols, 49, was last seen on the morning of Feb. 23rd in Red Deer. Her husband, Greg Nichols reported her missing later that evening.

Lorie is described as 5’2” tall with a slender build. She has hazel eyes. She was last seen wearing a three-quarter length charcoal winter jacket with gray/black lace up winter boots, medium blue tight fitting jeans with discernible tears to the knees and thighs. She is believed to have a gray woolen loose fitting toque and an over shoulder dark green/black strapped bag with white and yellow lettering.

“At this point it truly is a mystery,” said Greg, adding the search for Lorie remains active. “Your thoughts go from knowing she has free will and due to the lack of sightings around town, maybe she’s not even local anymore in which case it’s like looking for a needle in a haystack. But we haven’t stopped looking and we haven’t given up. It is very important to us to have her home.

“I’m reminded every day when you see someone missing on the news. It really hits close to home. I understand what these people are going through and how difficult it is for family and friends.”

He added since her disappearance there has not been any activity on her credit cards and bank cards. She did not have a cell phone nor access to a vehicle as she does not have her driver’s license.

Anyone with information on Lorie’s whereabouts is asked to contact the Red Deer RCMP at 403-343-5575.
