    Indiana mother Najah Ferrell still missing after disappearing on first day of new job

    The first day at a new job can be stressful -- especially when your shift starts at 5:00 a.m. But on March 15, 2019, Najah Ferrell was ready for her first day of work at a Panera Bread restaurant in Indianapolis, Indiana. She got up at 3:00 a.m. at her home in Avon, Indiana, a suburb 30 miles west of Indianapolis, to get ready.

    "She got up for work and told [her fiancé] to get the kids out, because she had to go in,” Najah’s mother Paula Gholson told NBC affiliate WTHR. “He said that's the last time he saw her.”

    I wonder what they found?

    "An aerial search next to a local highway is scheduled for Tuesday, March 26, based off a lead Det. Nugent hopes will prove promising.

    “The area that we’re searching [Tuesday] is relevant to a piece of personal property found next to a highway,” Det. Nugent told Dateline. He was unable to detail what item was found, but confirmed it belonged to Najah."

    Curious where her car was found exactly I lived close to this area. There are several hotels, restaurants, gas stations etc. Further south of Michigan is an unsavory area...not much further.

    Thanks for this thread.

    On tv this morning, they said her car was found at the Studio Movie Grill and showed a pic of it. They also were talking about her belongings being found and flashed a pic of a field near an on/off (?) ramp (which I assume is is the location they described as being near I-65 near Lafayette Road).

    LE will be on tv tomorrow discussing this disappearance.

    Police find car and items belonging to missing Avon mother
    [...]

    Around 1:30am Tuesday a metro officer on Indy's northwest side located Ferrell's 2018 Nissan Altima in the parking lot at Studio Movie Grill. The car was in a parking spot in the out-lot of the property not far from the McDonald’s restaurant. Investigator want to hear from anyone who works or shops in that area who may have witnessed someone driving the Nissan. Detectives are checking all of the nearby businesses to see if security cameras may have captured video that would help.

    Avon police also located some of Ferrell’s personal belongings along I-65 near Lafayette Road. The area is full of brush, trees and woods which may offer more clues in the case.

    [...]

    The 30-year-old mother of two, who also serves as a foster parent, was seen last by her fiance and children last Friday reportedly headed to work. The same day she was scheduled to pick up another foster child for the weekend but never showed up. Najah’s mother knew even more so that something was wrong because her daughter would never let down a child expected a foster stay.

    I live close to Avon. Locally it was being said that she was going to work at the Panera Breads on Raceway Road which is only a few miles, so the 3am wake up was a little extreme. Curious what avenues the investigation has gone. Since there are foster children involved I wonder if LE are investigating the parents?
