    Family of Missing Utah Man Asks for Public's Help
    August 29 2004

    Jeff Nichols disappeared under suspicious circumstances on June 8, 2004. He was supposed to meet his ex-wife and 7-year-old son for breakfast at a McDonalds in Midvale but never arrived and hasn’t been seen since.

    As family and friends, we do not believe Jeff would leave his son, his new girl friend, or his family. The Salt Lake City Police Department is calling his case suspicious, especially because there has been no account activity on his bank or credit cards since he disappeared, nor any unusual activity in the months and years prior.

    Jeff worked as an air traffic controller at Salt Lake International Airport. He lived in the Parley’s Way area (East of Salt Lake City). Jeff was originally from Northern Virginia and moved to Salt Lake City in 1998.

    Jeff's vehicle, a white, 2000 Ford Ranger, also was missing. The family has recently learned the vehicle was towed from 4800 South State Street on July 17. The family is organizing a $10,000 reward, which will be announced shortly.

    Family Still Searching for Man Missing Three Months
    Sep. 16, 2004
    Tonya Papanikolas Reporting

    Family and friends of a missing Salt Lake man are trying to find out what happened to him. Police are investigating his disappearance but don't have much to go on right now.

    Anyone driving north along State Street may have seen some large billboards with a man's picture on them. The man is 41-year-old Jeffrey Nichols. He's been missing since early June and his family is hoping the public can help find him.

    Overlooking State Street is a picture of Jeff Nichols smiling and looking happy. But next to his picture is the word "missing." No one has heard from Jeff since the morning of June 8.

    Jeff's Girlfriend: “He told me to call to wake him up. He was on his way to meet his ex to buy these golf clubs.”


    But his ex-wife said he never made it there. Nichols told his girlfriend they were meeting at 4500 S. State. His car was later found three blocks from there, but no Jeff. And his friends and family don't know what happened.

    Tony Hillyard, Jeff's Best Friend: “I've been out in the garage crying a few times. He’s been gone three months, and that doesn’t sound good."

    For personal reasons, Jeff's girlfriend doesn't want her face shown. She says the whole ordeal has been a nightmare.

    Jeff's Girlfriend: “It's one of those things you can't possibly believe can ever happen to you.”

    Most of Jeff's friends and family believe foul play was involved. They say Jeff never would have willingly left his seven-year-old son, Sam.

    Tony Hillyard: “Something happened, something happened that wasn't right."

    Jeff's Girlfriend: “His son really did come first. He was his whole world."

    Police say they are following up on a few leads, but can't rule out the possibility that Nichols walked away.

    Det. Dwayne Baird, Salt Lake City Police Dept.: “If we had some indication that there was foul play, we would have an investigation that would lead us down that path. But we just don't have that."

    Jeff's girlfriend admits that Nichols was on medication for depression, but says he was taking it faithfully and doesn't believe that has anything to do with his disappearance.

    Jeff's girlfriend: “To think that he was in a depression at that time, no. Everything seemed like if anybody had anything going their way, it was him."

    Right now the family has put up two billboards along State Street. They are offering a $10,000 reward for information that helps them find Jeff. The family also has his bank account records. They say no money has been withdrawn and his credit cards have not been used since he disappeared.

    Nobody with a son who is "his whole world" willingly leaves and just walks away from his life. South State St. in Utah is a busy street. I'm surprised nobody saw anything. Blessings to his family.

    Family Continues Search for Man Missing Over a Year
    September 28th, 2005 @ 4:45pm
    Sandra Yi Reporting

    Wanda Schmidt: "I think somebody hurt him, did something to him."

    He's been missing for more than a year and his family fears the worst, but they continue to look for answers. Jeff Nichols was last seen on June 8, 2004. The case has baffled everyone from police to Nichol's family.

    There's been no sign of Jeff Nichols since he left his house more than a year ago to meet his ex-wife in this area of 4500 South State. This is still a missing person's case, but his family thinks it could eventually turn into a murder investigation.

    Wanda Schmidt: "It's been a very difficult year. Just trying to hold things together and not letting him be forgotten."

    Wanda Schmidt won't let that happen to her brother Jeff. It's been 16 months since he disappeared, but time hasn't healed the pain.

    Wanda Schmidt: "It just doesn't go away."

    Jeff Nichols was last seen, on June 8 of last year. He told his girlfriend he was meeting his ex-wife to buy some golf clubs. The ex-wife said he never showed up. Nichols' car was found a few days later. The unknown is most difficult for his family.

    Wanda Schmidt: "I don't know if it's different if you know something's happened, if you know a family member's been murdered, you know that's happened. In this case, we think that's what happened, but we don't have that answer."

    But she does have her suspicions, including questions for Nichol's ex-wife. There's a warrant for her arrest in connection with those charges. She moved out of state within two weeks after Nichols disappeared. She took their eight-year old son, Sam, with her. They've since moved again and didn't leave a forwarding address.

    Schmidt says her brother knew his ex-wife had filed for bankruptcy and was planning to get full custody of his son.

    Wanda Schmidt: "It just breaks my heart to wonder what's happened to him."

    Police have no evidence of foul play, but Wanda Schmidt won't give up until she knows what really happened to her brother.

    Wanda Schmdt: "I think everything comes out in the end. It's always told."

    Schmidt is in Salt Lake from Wisconsin. She is here to get limited guardianship so she can speak on behalf of her brother on legal issues. She hopes that will eventually allow her to see her nephew again.

    If you have any information on the whereabouts of Jeff Nichols, call Salt Lake City Police.

    Jeff's sister has had his website updated with new information and photos, including photos of Jeff's son, Sam, who now, in essence, is also missing. Read the story on the blog and then read the updates on the website to get a clearer picture about the nature of this case.

    Family Desperate for Answers in Missing Man Case

    June 8th, 2006 @ 3:44pm
    Sandra Yi reporting

    Two years ago today, a Salt Lake City man disappeared without a trace. His friends and family are still desperate for answers.

    Today, the family of Jeff Nichols, who live out of state, are holding a prayer remembrance in his honor.

    In the past two years, there have been no good leads, but they suspect foul play. His friends agree, that's the only way to explain his disappearance.

    Pam Sheeler, Friend: "The pain is still there every time I'm reminded of it."

    Pam Sheeler remembers the day she heard about the disappearance of her friend and co-worker.

    Pam Sheeler: "We were just devastated, and we knew that something went wrong."

    That was 2 years ago, and there's still no sign of him.

    Tim Hirsch, Friend: "At the time he disappeared, everybody thought, he's a male and he's ran off on his own."

    Tim Blair, Friend: "That's not the type of person he was. He loved his son more than anything, and just to up and leave, and leave his son behind, isn't something he would do."

    Nichols was an air traffic controller at the Salt Lake airport. He was last seen on June 8th, 2004. He told his girlfriend he was meeting his ex-wife to buy some golf clubs. His ex-wife said he never showed up. Nichols' car was found a few days later.

    Tom Blair, Friend: "It's just not knowing is the hardest part."

    But friends and family have their suspicions, which include questions for Nichols' ex-wife.

    Last year, Shelby Nichols was indicted for bankruptcy fraud. There's a warrant for her arrest, in connection with those charges. Nichols' family recently found out, she left the country, with the couple's son.

    Tom Blair, Friend: "Until we find out something for sure, we're always going to have the hope that we'll be able to find him someday."

    Until then, friends continue to put up flyers. They don't want Nichols to be forgotten.

    Pam Sheeler: "It's very sad. I just wish for myself, all of us here at work that loved him, and his family, especially, if they could just get some closure on this."

    Nichol's family is offering a $10,000 reward in this case. If you have any information, call Salt Lake City Police.

    I didn't find any links about Sam being missing. Is there one I didn't find? It seems like there should be one for this little boy since there are warrants out for his mom.
    Opinions are like belly buttons. Everyone's got one. This one is mine.

    I'm sure Sam isn't listed as missing because he is with a parent who legally probably still is a custodial parent. I wonder if anybody has tried looking up any of the Browns through classmates.com and tried contacting them through there.

    I remember seeing Jeff's posters in a few places when I visited Utah and I've always wondered about this one. I hope this family can locate their son and their grandson, how terrible to not know about either one.
