50 people in 50 days: Air Force nurse vanished while on leave

Editor's note: Nancy Grace's new show on HLN, "Nancy Grace: America's Missing," is dedicated to finding 50 people in 50 days. As part of the effort, which relies heavily on audience participation, CNN.com's news blog This Just In will feature the stories of the missing.

This is the 17th case, and it airs Tuesday at 9 p.m. ET on HLN.

Just four months before she was to end her military duty, Nonnie Dotson disappeared while visiting relatives in Littleton, Colorado, in November 2006.

Dotson, then a single 33-year-old mother, was an intensive-care nurse at Lackland Air Force Base in San Antonio, Texas. She was on a pre-Thanksgiving holiday when she disappeared.

She was supposed to meet friends at a smoothie shop about a half-mile from her brother's home. She left the home on the afternoon of November 19, but she didn't appear at the smoothie shop. When her 16-month-old daughter woke up crying the next morning, her family realized that Dotson hadn't returned.

Police said there was no activity on her bank accounts, credit cards or cell phone. No suspects have been named.

Watch Nancy Grace Monday through Sunday starting at 8 p.m. ET on HLN. For the latest from Nancy Grace click here.

    Actually Mike Vick and Lindsay Holan will get more posts, because this country cares more about celebs than they care about real people. Any real story no matter how important will always take a back seat to media sensationalism of dysfunctional celebrities. Either that, or people just don't like nancy grace.

    How does a 30 something year old military mom go missing within an afternoon half mile travel distance?
    1. She crashed and her car is in a mountanous ravine.
    2. She picked up a hitchhiker.
    3. A man she knows, caught her off gaurd.

      Nonnie was walking from brother's house to the smoothie store. Flew up to Colorado, while on leave. Told her mother terrible incidents occurring at Wilford Hall Medical Center. With only 2 days before having to return to WHMC, I think she simply arranged to go Underground. Is a very unfortunate situation.
