    So she left a note that said she was going for a ride? and "I love you" to her husband? But her work called the police to do a welfare check on her? not her husband? Am I reading all this correctly? hhmmmmm

    Her husband saw her on Friday morning 8am.....and she was suppose to be at work at 2pm Saturday.....

    From nurse's reformer link ==> Police initially received a request for a welfare check on Sept. 6 at 2 p.m., as Holmes did not arrive for a scheduled appointment.

    =============================

    To me it seems unusual that someone called the police to request they do a welfare check on her because of a missed appt. I wonder if the police actually performed the check or not at 2pm on Friday.

    Link does not say who requested police perform welfare check. Just that they received request Friday sept 6 at 2pm.
    Link says she was scheduled to work Monday the 9th - her start time wasn't specified.

    Yes, you are right. She was last seen around 9am (by her husband at home) and then at 2pm that day a welfare check was requested because she missed an appointment.

    So if someone requests a welfare check they wouldn't be living in the home with them. If you live with them then you can just enter the home, of course. A welfare check would be requested by someone outside of the home.

    Unless the other occupant(s) was not in the immediate area, i.e out of town. I have heard of welfare checks being requested that way.

    But her car is missing too, right? So she may have driven somewhere?
    Just my opinion, of course.

    From the above newscast
    "Police say it's out of character for Holmes -- who also took one of her dogs -- a pitbull mix -- and gave it away the day before. They don't know who she gave it to and have not been able to trace her either."

    I really think that's the strangest thing of all. How do they know she gave her dog away? Why hasn't the person she gave it to come forward?

    This doesn't smell good to me... As I'm sure everyone does I hope she is just taking a break. I think her car being missing as well is a good omen for that outcome.

    Did she leave a note? How else would they know about the dog, I wonder?
    Just my opinion, of course.

    Apparently she did leave a note asking her husband to take care of the animals, and indicating that she would return.

    Missing along with a dog that would probably have protected her.

    From the links above -

    On Friday, Holmes told her husband, Steven M. St. Peter, that she was going to tend to animals on their farm around 8 a.m. When he woke up around 10 a.m., there was a note on the butcher block that said she went for a ride.
    "(It said) she'd see me later on Friday afternoon. She said, 'I love you,' but I haven't heard from her ever since," said St. Peter, who was the last person who has claimed to have seen her.

    The 59-year-old registered nurse has been missing since Friday morning, when St. Peter says she left a note asking him to take care of the animals -- and saying she'd be back. But no one has seen her since.

    Checking in for any updates. Ran across this article with more details + comment from her daughter.
    http://www.commonsnews.org/site/site...1#.UjB2TsYWKGc
    According to a message distributed on Facebook by her husband, Steven St. Peter, Holmes “loved old cellar holes and graveyards and frequented them frequently in the past for the peace and solitude she felt there.”
    More at the link above.

    A registered nurse who works on the night shift, Helen creates amazing collages, two of which are on display outside the digital X-ray room. She finished this collage, called On The Road to Heaven, in 2006.

    She also had some photos she shared online, very nice one of her out hunting for Christmas trees with her husband. I couldn't get that one to come over here with me but its easily found with a quick image search.

    for her family + her safe return home soon.

    I wonder what kind of appointment it is that sends the police on a well-being check when it's missed.

    I suspect - with giving away the dog (if she did,) and looking for her car in isolated places - that we're fearing suicide here. I hope not. There is no mention of depression in any of the news pieces, but "a lot of pressure in her life with a lot of things going on" in the wcax piece. That could mean anything or nothing at all and might be said of 'most any 59 year old...
