This story is centered in Detroit, Michigan, a place where I once called home as a toddler.

Details regarding how and why the 45-year-old woman disappeared are unknown, but I’ve shared what I could find regarding her case.

Audrey Nelson MissingIt was on May 19, 2012, when Audrey Nelson was reportedly making her way to her boyfriend’s residence.
