    Details of Disappearance

Nolan reportedly got into an argument with him in their vehicle and got out on the interstate near the Illinois/Kentucky border. She has never been heard from again. She was reported missing by her brother on November 28.

    Nolan had a troubled marriage prior to her disappearance. She separated from her husband shortly before the last of her four children was born and moved from her husband's home in Chicago, Illinois to Kentucky, where she grew up. Nolan's husband came to Kentucky a few months later and they decided to reconcile. Nolan left her youngest child, then two months old, with her husband's relatives and she and her husband began the journey back to Chicago. They were on the way there when Nolan disappeared. Her husband filed for divorce seven years later.
