    AK - Mindy Schloss, 52, abducted & murdered, Anchorage, 3 Aug 2007

    Local nurse has gone missing. Mindy is apparently excessively reliable and its clear that she's not voluntarily missing because of this.

    Her car was found at the alaska airlines cargo terminal (not in the regular airport) just yesterday. Police suspect foul play.

    I wonder if she has had any problems with a ex-husband or boyfriend recently?

    I was suspicious of that comment that a friend made that if she was going to the airport her "significant other" would take her and yet there is no mention of her significant other in the article. Our press is VERY tight lipped up here and if he was a serious suspect, the police would ask them not to mention him and they would aquiesce.

    FBI joins in missing woman case

    ~snip~

    Police strongly suspect foul play after they found her abandoned car last week. Friends say it's just not like Schloss to go away without telling anyone. They're now planning a search team. The FBI has now joined the case.

    ~snip~

    Authorities are searching the area between her house on Cutty Sark and the Air Cargo buildings on the Airport Frontage Road where Schloss' car was found. But her friends want to do more.

    FBI joins search for missing nurse

    FOUL PLAY? Federal involvement shows seriousness of disappearance.

    ~snip~

    Schloss goes often to Stevens International Airport to take flights to Fairbanks, where she works. But she never drives to the airport, preferring to leave her car home and take a cab, a close friend said last week.

    Such circumstances have police and Schloss' friends alarmed. The FBI's entry into the case is a strong indication police believe Schloss to be in some danger.

    Police are not releasing to the public all they know for fear of jeopardizing their investigation, said police spokeswoman Anita Shell said. "There's a lot of stuff going on," she said.

    I was just panicking because I saw an article where a body was found this AM on turnagain arm - less than 10 miles from mindys house and the airport (http://www.adn.com/front/story/9219386p-9135496c.html ) -but the body is that of a man.

    I did a quick google earth - Mindy lives within five minutes of the airport - right near me. Her home is near some undeveloped land with a lake right there. That would be the first place I'd check. And then..the turnagain arm -the tides are huge and a body could easily be lost forever if someone could manage to get it in the water at the right time.

    I keep seeing that the friends want to search for her, but I haven't heard any info about organized searches.

    Not to ask a stupid question, but what is a turnagain arm?? I'm completely landlocked in the midwest and I'm confident we don't have those.

    AJ, from what the article says it sounds like an area of water by the highway. I wonder why it's named that though as it's an interesting name!

    The Turnagain Arm is the body of bay water near Anchorage. Its an arm because its long and thin, I think and reaches far inland. It has incredible tides.

    I've gotten in touch with her friends and I am encouraging them to put together a search of the woods near her home. I'll be there to help if we manage to get enough people together.

    Great.
    This is where I'd look for her - she lives on cutty sark st - right near a large body of water and some woods - thats where I'd concentrate:

    Search for missing woman extends into woods

    NO SPECIFICS: Police look in Kincaid Park.

    The search for an Anchorage psychiatric nurse missing for almost two weeks has turned to the wooded areas of Stevens International Airport and Kincaid Park, police said Wednesday.

    Investigators, who include FBI agents, have no specific information that connects 52-year-old Mindy Schloss with the park or the airport's forested periphery, said spokeswoman Anita Shell.

    But Schloss lives on Cutty Sark Street off Raspberry Road, close to both the airport and the park, Shell said. She was last seen in her house at 7 p.m. Aug. 3.

    Anchorage Woman Still Missing- Investigation Intensifies

    The search for a missing woman intensifies in Anchorage. The Anchorage Police Department (APD) is in Kincaid Park right now, with search dogs looking for anything connected to her suspicious disappearance two weeks ago.

    Police are in Kincaid Park because the missing woman lives near there off or Raspberry, close to the airport where her car was found last week. Tree teams of K-9 police dogs are combing through Kincaid Park this Thursday afternoon searching in a grid pattern, for any clues that might lead them to the whereabouts of 52-year old Mindy Schloss.

    Never heard of "tree teams" so its probably a typo and should be "three teams"....I sure hope something is found to lead the investigation to the right area.

    There is so much wilderness here it would be pretty easy to locate a body within 10 miles of anchorage and have it not found for a long time.
