Michaela Nelson Missing
Her last contact with her family was on October 26.
Her family believes she is still alive but maybe hiding, according to James Terry, the private investigator hired to discover her.
Nelson’s phone is turned off, but her FaceTime continues to ring, according to Terry.
He stated to Fox News Digital, “She’s using a phone, some sort of phone. She just doesn’t have her number on.”
Nelson’s final contact with family was a text message exchange with her grandma at the end of October, according to cousin Elise Miller on Friday.
But the last time Miller spoke with Nelson was during Nelson’s mother’s funeral a month before.
Lance Nelson, her father, told Fox News Digital, “She could be anywhere in the United States,”
He told Dayton 247 Now, “People are in tears, thousands of people are praying that we can find her,”

He added, “Michaela we want you to come home we love you. We want to help you in any way we can. Whether it’s financial, emotional, grieving, and just to be together as a family again, is really starting to hurt a lot of us.”
He continued, “We just have to believe she’s okay. She’s just taking time away from us or have some sort of new life,”
Michaela Nelson Missing Update
It’s possible she’s still driving her dark grey 2016 Dodge Charger SXT.
According to Nelson’s father, license plate scanners in Columbus, Ohio, picked up her automobile near an apartment where she had lived between October 6 and 15.
However, by the time she went missing and cops searched the area in early November, the vehicle had vanished.
According to her father, Nelson’s ex had been the subject of a restraining order, but it was no longer in place.
He said, “I think that faded,”
Miller asked Nelson to phone Nelson’s family on Friday to let them know she was well.
She said, “We’d just like to help her,”

Nelson, a former collegiate athlete with 18.8k TikTok followers, had been hanging out with a new set of pals in recent months, according to her relative.
There were a number of professional players in the group who Miller recognized because of their ties to Indiana, where she lives.
Nelson is the eldest of five children.
Nelson ran track at Cedarville University and was a four-year letterman at Xenia Christian High School in southeastern Ohio.
Terry believed Nelson’s new interests and her mother’s recent death may have caused a shift in her priorities, and she may be attempting to dodge punishment for not returning to her unit.
Nelson said in a TikTok video posted in August that she was taken a month earlier at the NBA Finals.
