    FL - Melisa Brady-Sloan, 23, Orlando, 1 May 1994

    13 Jan 08

    The family of a missing Kentucky woman will provide DNA samples to see if she has turned up in a national unidentified body database.

    Melisa Maureen Brady-Sloan was 23 when disappeared 14 years ago, about a year after she and her husband John Sloan moved to Orlando, Fla. John Sloan told police his wife left with another man, but her family did not believe she would have left behind her car and her cat, The Louisville (Ky.) Courier-Journal reported Sunday.

    Her Social Security card, credit cards and nursing license have not been used since she went missing, the newspaper said.

    John Sloan, who divorced his wife eight months after she disappeared, is remarried and lives in Bellingham, Wash.

    The Bradys say they have long held out hope Melisa would return, but more than anything they just want answers. Providing their DNA will allow authorities to ascertain whether any of the unidentified bodies recorded in a national registry is Melisa's.

    Orlando police have not ruled out foul play in the disappearance.

    Update:

    ORLANDO, Fla. -- Cases of missing women captivate attention across the nation.

    Melisa Sloan, a young nurse at Orlando Regional Medical Center, disappeared and the last person to see her won't answer police questions.

    Police hope to use new scientific tools will help solve the missing person cases that most people have probably never heard of.

    She was 24, a newlywed who moved to Orlando, Florida, with her husband just a few months before she vanished in May 1994. In the 15 years since, there have been no clues or signs of Melisa Brady Sloan, despite periodic searches. The native of Louisville, Kentucky, was close to her family and a devoted nurse working long hours at Orlando Regional Hospital. She disappeared just 10 days before she was due in court to testify against her husband in a domestic violence case.

    "She loved him and wanted to work things out with him," says Melanie Brady Drury, Sloan's sister.

    It was a whirlwind romance, Drury said. The two met in Louisville, where Melisa was a nurse and John Sloan was a night security guard at the same hospital. He said he had just been discharged from the Army Special Forces.

    They dated only a few months before marrying quickly. Within weeks of the wedding, they moved to Orlando. Her family was concerned about the move because they barely knew this new man in Melisa's life.

    "He was very controlling of her, and that's when the physical violence between them began," Drury said.

    FL-Melisa Brady Sloan - 05-01-1994

    This nurse was set to testify against her husband for domestic violence - and she just "disappeared". He lives in Washington now with his new wife and kids and he "refuses" to speak with the police?? I read in another article his second wife was found dead outside of a hotel room - supposedly an overdose.

    I believe this is her exhusband's website. It is painfully obvious he commited this crime. I cannot believe this has not been solved. I have to wonder about his second wife's death too.
