    NE - Shelly Miller, 50, Lincoln, 25 March 2017

    Police ask for public's help searching for woman missing after fire at her house

    Lincoln police are investigating the disappearance of a 50-year-old woman whose house caught fire Saturday.

    Fire crews went to Shelly A. Miller's northeast Lincoln home just after 2:30 p.m. after a neighbor spotted heavy smoke coming from the basement, an LPD news release said.

    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."

    Family member expresses concern over missing Lincoln woman
    Family and neighbors are worried about the disappearance of 50-year-old Shelly Miller.

    Miller was found to be missing after her home caught fire by an unattended candle in the basement Saturday afternoon.

    Her neighbor Rustin Bader recalled calling 9-1-1 when he saw the smoke coming from her house.

    Her house is about 3 blocks from my parents and just over a mile from mine. Such a weird, sad story. Not sure what I'm thinking.

    Her sister says something was different about her when they had dinner on Friday night.

    "Christine Miller Johnson said she had dinner with Miller Friday night... "I know she is suffering from fibromyalgia and she has had a lot of pain recently. Her behavior has been slightly different lately but nothing like this though," Christine said." http://www.ketv.com/article/sister-m...-woman/9199577

    Article says they found her cellphone in the house. Her purse and sister's car were not at her house. Also, "Investigators found a dryer going, indicating Miller or some one was in the house just hours before the fire broke out, Flood said."

    We had a neighbor that her house caught on fire due to a candle unattended. She had left for the store...when she came home it was said she tried to fan the fire out with towels.

    My only thoughts is perhaps Shelly got scared and left? moo

    I'm confused... the dryer fire sounded like a separate story to Shelly's. Is that not the case?
    Justice for Jennifer


    Rest in peace Danielle and Tammy

    The info was in a link further down the thread

    Investigators found a dryer going, indicating Miller or some one was in the house just hours before the fire broke out, Flood said.

    I don't get how it shows someone had been in the house hours before if it was still running. I've never had a dryer that would run that long without being reset,
    Silence means security, silence means approval.

    That is a stretch ...maybe it was all men that have never operated a dryer that came to that conclusion. Lol
    ETA Seriously, maybe they are figuring in the time to sort, wash and dry.

    I'm good friends with two of the firefighters that worked this, while I adore both of them, this is entirely possible!

    In all seriousness, I didn't know there were any driers that would run that long. And it's been radio silence around here since the last news report when they interviewed her sister and former employer. Very weird. I still think she voluntarily left, I still don't know if I think she just ran off to clear her head, or if she unfortunately took her life.
