FEARS MOUNT ON
FATE OF MISSING AIR FORCE
Friends and family of attractive 1LT Nonnie Dotson, missing since November 19th in Littleton, Colo., now fear the worst after an intensive police search failed to turn up any trace of the 33 year-old Air Force nurse.
The Jefferson County Sheriff's Dept. used bloodhounds to track Nonnie's scent from a garment she'd left at the home of her brother where the young woman was staying, on leave from her job in the Intensive Care Unit and Wilford Hall Medical Center in San Antonio, Tex.
Dotson was due to complete her military service in March. Sources who know the nurse say it is highly unlikely she would have staged her own disappearance.
The dogs lost the trail at the entrance to an on-ramp leading to the Kiring Parkway, about a ten-minute walk from Tony Dotson's home. The nurse set out on foot from the house around 2 p.m., saying she wanted to "go shopping" and "get a smoothie."
She took her cell phone with her. A triangulation on it showed the device was located in the general area where the dogs lost the scent. But the phone itself has yet to be recovered.
DID NONNIE MEET THE WRONG TYPE OF GUYS AT ROWDY BAR?
After a long night of partying at a local bar, Dotson drove back to brother Tony's home and told him she'd danced hard and "closed the place down." That was the night before her mysterious disappearance. But witnesses tell police that Dotson left the bar "around midnight" and had been dancing with several men during the course of the evening.
It is possible she went off with them and simply told Tony she'd been at the Grizzly Rose country and western bar until closing time? The single mom was apparently on the lookout for a new boyfriend ever since she broke up with the father of her daughter who at first denied he'd gotten Dotson pregnant.
A Texas judge ordered 53 year-old Edward Alan Vehle to fork over $10,000 and pay $900 a month support for the child. He was known to be bitter over the failed relationship, and when local police tried to talk to him a short time after Dotson's disappearance, Vehle "lawyered up." However, we hear he is now speaking with the cops. He has not, however, been identified as an official "suspect" in the case.
WILFORD HALL "GROUND ZERO" FOR MYSTERIOUS DEATHS
If Dotson has met with foul play and is dead, it will mark the third Air Force nurse from Wilford Hall to die under mysterious circumstances in the past couple years. The Texas medical center was also the place where Col. Philip Shue worked. The then 54 year-old Air Force psychiatrist died in a bizarre automobile accident on April 16, 2003 in nearby Boerne, Tex. His body had been mutilated, as in a Satanic ritual, prior to his being killed in the crash.
