August 3, 1984 was a typical Friday night. Nancy Medina a single, working mother of three, dropped off her two younger children with their babysitter and was headed off to watch videos with her eldest daughter, Catherine.

Nancy never made it, and has never been heard from since. It has been 37 years.

Nancy’s last known sighting was at 9:00pm on August 3, 1984 in Choctaw, Oklahoma. The car that she was driving that night, a two-doored, brown 1974 Chevy Impala, was found on August 22, over by the old Springlake Amusement Park at the intersection of Springlake and Eastern, Oklahoma City, almost 18 miles away from where she had last seen.

At the time of Nancy’s disappearance, she was going through a divorce and custody dispute with her youngest child’s father. While Nancy’s estranged husband has never been officially named a person of interest in her case- it is worth noting that his own daughter would also go missing just under five years after Nancy did. Meredith Medina was 16 years old, and last seen on February 14, 1989 in Midwest City, Oklahoma.

There are certainly other suspects that could be involved in Nancy’s disappearance, a second husband that was at one time a suspect in a murder- Nancy was his alibi for the murder.

Oklahoma City Police have believed almost all along that foul play was involved. We don’t know exactly what evidence was found with the car, but we believe that there was evidence that would lead police to believe that a struggle occurred within the vehicle.

Nancy was a beloved mother, daughter, and sister. Her family just wants her back. Her kids want her back. Thirty-four years is too long to go without answers for what happened to your mom.
