    Nicole Maria Harris, 41, of the Sherwood Hills neighborhood, was last seen on the evening of Oct. 24 and was reported missing on Monday.

    Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.

    "When from a long distant past nothing persists, after the people are dead, after things are broken and scattered, still alone, more persistent, more faithful, the smell and taste of things remain poised a long, long time like souls, ready to remind us, waiting, hoping for their moment amid the ruins of all the rest, and bear unfaltering in the tiny and almost impalpable drop of their essence the vast structure of recollection."

    I wonder if there is a more recent picture of Nicole? Usually, when one is struggling mentally, it shows up physically. This looks like a passport photo where she has her all hair and makeup done nicely. She is very pretty. Maybe this is the most recent photo, though.

    Unless I provide a link or refer to a specific link, all my ramblings are theories, speculation, scenarios based on what info is available and my own unique life experiences.

    Another more active FB https://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100009288179161 and from various places she seems to also go by Nikki.

    She was apparently in a very bad crash with a semi in January 2014 (with at least one child in the car and pregnant) MANY photos have a massive neckbrace etc. and probably wouldn't be helpful in her looking like she does now.

    Wonder if there could be prolonged post-partum stuff going on on top of other things?

    One of her older daughters just left on her mission a few weeks ago (one of the London Missions) and that part of her family seems to be pretty staunch LDS.

    It appears she's divorced and has younger kids with someone else.

    That older daughter who just left on her mission said her mom is Bipolar and Schizophrenic and has been struggling with them for a long time.

    She left on foot. No cell. Last seen walking in her neighborhood by a friend.

    Has a twin brother.

    I finally found her siblings etc and that part of the family seems to be the ones trying to get the word out and are who contacted LE and are searching, doing fliers, etc.

    I'm not sure if she's actually married to the father of the youngest kids or what, but Harris is neither her birth surname or first married surname.

    Her siblings and their spouses are very, very worried.

    Flier made by family - does really use Nikki (and you'll be able to find FB pages of her siblings b/c the flier has her maiden name that will help steer you to more of them)

    They think she possibly went hiking up Little Rock Canyon near her home.

    Black button down jacket and tan or khaki pants.

    They really don't have much clue for sure, though, and people have been out searching that area and haven't found anything.

    They've got it on KSL's FB at least now, which always seems to be the high traffic Utah news site so hopefully that'll help get the word out too https://www.facebook.com/ksltv/photo...503676/?type=3

    Looking For Nicole group https://www.facebook.com/groups/998082260233610/

    Starting to get good media coverage and have organized searches for tomorrow and are hoping to get a good response to go help try to find Nicole.

    Meeting at 9 at Rock Canyon where they believe she may have gone to walk.

    They're especially looking for people with horses, dogs, and climbing experience to help in the more difficult terrain area.

    They really seem to think she's hurt or lost in that area - there's also an infrared copter up and search and rescue team working.

    My understanding is...

    She was seen by a neighbor walking in the neighborhood (which apparently wasn't out of the norm) Saturday evening.

    It sounds like then they realized Sunday she wasn't around and were struggling to make sense of any of it, to see if she'd been in touch with others (lots of components to this family - and just lots of people as they're at least largely Mormon families - which can lead to a false sense of assuming someone else has been in touch type thing at times)

    I've not seen anything indicating she lives with anyone, but she does have two younger kids (one is a toddler) besides the 3 older ones from another marriage, but as I said above, I've not found any 'candidate' for the father of those younger kids mentioned or in things, so I've not seen anything indicating if he's with her, not with her, in the picture at all, perhaps not even alive, or if he may even largely have the younger kids?

    Totally my guess from things alluded to, but I suspect she may have not been seen overnight before when she wasn't doing well, and that they may have thought it'd be like in the past and she'd be back the next day and waited based on that.

    It seems like they STILL don't know much about the context prior to her last been seen walking the neighborhood as they've said several times and a number of places that all those details are fuzzy or not not known (maybe a factor in waiting to report it too if they didn't really know much either? not sure) and they're still trying to figure things out.

    The tone/concern level in things I was finding by this afternoon was markedly different from yesterday's stuff, though I'm sure it just being another day is part of that.

    Something also seems to have made them think she could have gotten in trouble up in the Rock Canyon area (they've actually got a contact of their own apparently who was up flying with FLIR today - I don't think it was LE - and they seem to have friends who are trained in S&R and have been initiating a lot of their own planning/searching and it's switched from being more casual) whereas yesterday it seemed like they were kind of thinking she went for a walk and sort of stayed gone to clear her head or something.

    I've not figured out if the stuff in the media about possible concern if her metal state is playing into this is because of anything unusual, or more a general thing making her more at risk.

    Or if she had perhaps been on a spiral in the days/weeks prior to this (could her daughter leaving for her mission and not having real contact for 18 months have been a trigger or...?) or maybe the neighbor who saw her thought she seemed really upset (though I feel like they'd have said if that was the case and LE would probably be hopping on that more)

    I get the feeling the family is doing as much head scratching on a lot of this as we are reading it because it just doesn't seem like anyone knows much.

    It seems like her being out just walking the neighborhood or toward the canyon wasn't unusual, and that but not really truly into it might be unusual. Unless there's some concrete piece of information pointing there that they've not shared (and managing to have none of the many posting inadvertently spilling it) it seems that they're thinking she must be somewhere in Rock Canyon just out of lack of anything leading anywhere else and it being the best educated guess based on where she had been seen, combined with very little info.
