Details of Disappearance

Crider was last seen in Mansfield, Ohio on March 25, 2017. She has never been heard from again. She was separated from her husband, the father of her three teenage children, and living in an apartment in the 500 block of Allison Avenue at the time of her disappearance. She had moved in during the fall of 2016. Her boyfriend stated she left with someone she had met on the internet, leaving all her belongings behind, including her oxygen, medication and medical equipment.

She had no money and no car, and never contacted the oxygen delivery company to arrange to have her oxygen sent to a new address. After her disappearance, her boyfriend disposed of all her belongings. Several witnesses reported having seen Crider being pushed into her boyfriend's black truck as she was trying to get out, but these reports have not been confirmed.

Although they were separated, Crider had remained on good terms with her husband. He reported her missing on March 30. He had been unable to get in touch with her since the middle of the month, but he waited to report her missing because she had left for brief periods before and then returned.

It's possible Crider went to the Newark, Ohio area after her disappearance. Due to her state of health, there is grave concern for her safety; she could die without medical treatment. Her loved ones stated she was not suicidal, but she had spoken about dying and told her husband to take care of their children if anything happened to her.

Although Crider was battling drug addiction at the time of her disappearance, her family doesn't believe she overdosed, and she has never gone for this long without contacting loved ones. Her disappearance remains unsolved.
