Details of Disappearance

Thomas was last seen behind the Austintown Plaza on Jamestown Court in Austintown, Ohio on October 18, 2008. She called a tow truck driver and told him she'd gone off the road on state Route 45 on the outskirts of Orwell, Ohio. Her car had a flat tire and she didn't have a spare. She told the tow truck driver she'd wrecked it earlier that day. He towed the car to Jamestown Court.

Thomas has never been heard from again. The day after her disappearance, the police towed her car from Jamestown Court because it was blocking a driveway. All her personal belongings were inside the vehicle.

She wasn't reported missing until October 20. All her medications were left behind at her apartment in the 1900 block of Southern Boulevard in Warren, Ohio. Her case remains unsolved.
