Mindy Schloss, a 52 year old nurse is missing in Anchorage, Alaska. She has been missing since Sunday, August 5, 2007 when she missed a flight. Mindy Schloss was a psychiatric nurse who was always punctual for appointments. The nature of her job draws into mind that is it possible a patient may be responsible for her disappearance or was it a random act? Police do suspect foul play.

UPDATE I: Missing Nurse, Mindy Schloss’ car found
Police in Alaska have located the vehicle of missing Mindy Schloss near the Anchorage airport. The police suspect foul play in her disappearance.
Detectives say that they suspect foul play in the disappearance of an Anchorage woman, now missing for a week. Her car was found yesterday, on Thursday, near the airport and today, on Friday, her friend is speaking out.
Friends of Mindy Schloss say her disappearance is not in her character and believe that something’s gone wrong. Anchorage Police found Schloss’s red Acura Integra near the Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport. It was parked on Old International Airport road, near the Alaska Airlines Cargo Loading area.
Detectives on this case suspect foul play and are searching her car for clues or anything that might tell them where she is. (ABC Alaska News)

Anchorage police want to talk to a man caught on an ATM camera early Sunday morning on the weekend Mindy Schloss vanished.
Police released a photo of the man Monday. They were careful not to call him a suspect and asked the public to help identify him.
Police spokesman Paul Honeman also said investigators plan to widen the search for Schloss to the Seward Highway south of Anchorage near Mile 113, where the body of a 37-year-old man was found alongside the road early on Aug. 14. Police have so far refused to say how the man, Nickline Percy Noatak, died, only that his death is “suspicious.” (Anchorage Daily News)
Police say ATM user connected to missing nurse
In the ATM video, he is wearing a dark blue or black bandana and dark colored jacket. He also is possibly wearing a backpack. Though only partial features of his face can be seen, police hope it’s enough for someone to determine who he is. Police aren’t saying if he was using Schloss’ bank card.
They also suggest he may not be the only person of interest in the case. (KTUU)
