Nintendo Employee Reported "Missing"

Meara Lynn Nichols, an employee at Nintendo of America, has been reported missing by her husband after failing to return home from an appointment at her son's school.

Although she had left her laptop on and Facebook account logged in, when she didn't come home Matthew Nichols contacted the school, who let him know there hadn't actually been an appointment. He then discovered "a fairly large amount of money" had been withdrawn from her account. The couple had also recently been discussing a "trial separation". And Matthew Nichols was arrested last year on domestic violence charges.

While both local police and Nichols suspect she has simply taken off, it's being handled as a missing persons case because she has yet to contact friends or family, meaning her whereabouts are, at least officially, unknown.
