    Thank you for posting this, I heard about it on the way home and the first thing I did was check to see if she was listed here. She's been missing since September, and was just reported missing Tuesday?? I don't live very far from that area and I can't believe this wasn't reported sooner!

    Wanted to add, the area code for that contact number would be (937) 778-2027.

    She disappeared in September, but has a history of being a runaway when she was younger, so the police (to whom it was reported the day after she disappeared) neglected to contact any media sources. A member of her family finally contacted the news themselves to draw attention to her.

    Are the police ultimately responsible for contacting the media, or should that be left to the family? Not sure.

    Thanks for the welcome. I'm related to Nikki, so you'll see me mostly in this forum, but I'm scanning other posts to see where I can help.

    Dassala - Welcome to WebSleuths! I am sorry it is under the circumstances.

    Prayers for Nikki, the baby, family and friends.

    I do not believe that LE are obligated to issue a press release(s) to the media, although many law enforcement agencies do provide press releases for missing persons to their local media. Have you asked the assigned detective or police officer if they will assist you with contacts in the media?

    Please see the sticky note at the top of this forum "What to do". It might help. Do you have a "missing" poster put together? The local police should have one for Nikki. If not, there are many talented people here who can help you with creating one!

    We have been using the poster provided to us by NamUs. It's posted locally and we've been notifying as many local residents as possible.

    After the media was contacted, the police provided interviews to the local news. I guess we were just surprised that after another local woman disappeared (Tiffany Tehan) and it made national news, that cases wouldn't be immediately reported. Especially a pregnant woman who needed medication!

    We just really appreciate all of the locals on this forum and others who have been helping us.

    Dassala, I am so sorry that this case isn't getting the attention it deserves. I'm originally from the Englewood area (I live near Richmond now), and this concerns me greatly. I don't understand why some cases get more exposure than others. I think the best thing the family can do is to keep pushing the media in the area. Any additional information you can provide here will also be helpful.

    Praying for Nikki, the baby, and the family.

    Police: No new leads on missing woman

    Piqua resident not seen since Sept.
    Staff report

    PIQUA - Police say they have received no new leads regarding missing pregnant Piqua woman Nikki Lyn Forrest, who vanished without a trace in late September.
    <snipped>
    A few days after the disappearance, an elderly couple found her medication and later returned it to the Kroger in Piqua. Police think the couple could help with their investigation of the missing pregnant woman, but do not know their identities.

    Hi all,

    I was urged by a moderator to update, and I didn't realize how long it'd been since I'd been on here.

    There really aren't any huge updates to give, but we've ruled out one place Nikki could have gone of her own volition. We had assumed that she might have gone to Texas to visit her older brother Matthew, who is currently serving a prison term for arson. My mother (her paternal aunt) just received a letter from Matthew, asking us why she hasn't written him in a while. Apparently, although we asked the Piqua Police to contact him MONTHS ago, they never did. We're not really sure how to tell him that his little sister is nowhere to be found.

    There was one slightly unsettling other bit of news (which I forgot to share with the moderator on the phone -- apologies!), which came from Nikki's ex-Step Mother, who is one of the police's main contacts on her case. She said she received a phonecall from a young lady, who claimed to be a friend of Nikki's. The girl said that Nikki was fine and that there was no need to look for her, and that Nikki had asked her to make the phonecall for her.

    I guess my question is...why wouldn't Nikki call for herself? She has ALWAYS had a cell phone glued to her hand at one point or another, and loves to stay in constant contact with her family about her personal life.

    With no contact over Thanksgiving, Christmas or the New Year...we're starting to fear the worst. The police department has neglected to return any of our phonecalls, so we can't obtain any further updates.

    Thanks for your continued support, all. We really appreciate it.

    No new leads, but we're glad they're re-running information on her. A search warrant was executed in Troy in December, but no details were given on the search.

    I imagine this came to light recently just because of the disappearance of another young mother in the area. Unfortunately, that story ended tragically...we still pray every day that Nikki and her baby come home safely.
