Veda Lou Powers, Devoted Mother, Vanishes On Her Way Home

Her car was found a block away from her front door.

Although she had the day off from work, Veda Lou Powers went about her morning routine as usual in Nashville, Tennessee. She woke up in the early morning hours of May 26, 1982, got her kids ready for the day, and took her children to daycare before heading to her sister’s house to take her to work. During the drive, Veda talked to her sister about not having a shift at the St. Thomas Hospital and told her that she had no real plans set. Veda said she was going to go home and getting back into bed.

No one has seen or heard from Veda since and her sister was the last person to see her.

Because Veda was such a devoted parent, her family began to worry when she didn’t pick up her children. The first day she was missing was enough to worry her loved ones, but when, two days later, her 1975 Chevrolet Monza was found, they started to panic.

The vehicle was parked just one block from her home with her prescription eyeglasses in the backseat. The scene was puzzling to investigators. Veda loved her children and wouldn’t abandon them, according to those that were close to her. She had a wonderful relationship with her family and her employers describe her as a reliable employee, ruling out any animosity in her career or home life.

Police believe that Veda may have been kidnapped. She was listed as an endangered missing adult. Her case went cold and seven years after she vanished, Veda was considered legally dead. Her mother took on the responsibility of raising her children.

Veda was 29-years-old at the time of her disappearance and stood at 5’4″ tall, 110 pounds. She has black hair and brown eyes. No other information regarding identifiable markings or scarring has been made available.

If Veda looks familiar or you have any information, big or small, that could help bring her family closure, please contact the Metro Nashville Police Department at 615-862-7843 or email them at missing_persons@police.nashville.org.
