Florida Cold Case: Laura Marie Nimbach, Vanished Without A Trace

Laura Marie Nimbach was a beautiful, caring, and intelligent young woman who vanished without a trace in 2009.

Laura Marie Nimbach was a beautiful, caring, and intelligent young woman who vanished without a trace in 2009.

Laura was born on August 26, 1986, she grew up in Michigan, and after graduating high school she enrolled to attend Wayne State University to follow her dreams of becoming a nurse.

Within two years of attending college, Laura dropped out and relocated to Florida. By 2007 Laura had become addicted to prescription pain medicine and soon was involved in an abusive relationship.

At one point, when she was severely beaten, Laura attempted suicide with a drug overdose and she suffered heart and kidney failure.

She was in two different rehab centers working on getting her life straightened out and she stayed in regular contact with her family members.

By February of 2009, she was living in a domestic violence shelter in Clearwater, but she walked out on February 16th.

The following day, February 17, 2009, a Pinellas County Deputy found her sleeping behind a building in the 4800 Block of 49th Street located in St. Petersburg.

Between 10:00-11:00 pm that evening, Laura called and spoke with an ex-boyfriend several times. This was the last time anyone heard from Laura.

Though attempts were made to report Laura missing shortly after she was last seen, she was not officially labeled as a missing person by authorities until March 31, 2009, more than a month after she was last seen.

Some fear that due to Laura’s lifestyle, her case wasn’t given the attention that it needed and that valuable time was lost.

At the time of her disappearance in 2009, Laura was described as a 22-year-old caucasian woman with blonde hair and light brown eyes.

She was 5’5” tall and weighed approximately 105 lbs. Laura’s hair is naturally brown but was dyed light blonde at the time of her disappearance and is naturally curly, but she may straighten it.

She has a tattoo of a pink flower with a tribal design on her lower back and a tattoo of her initials “LN” on her left wrist. She has her nose, tongue, navel, and upper lip pierced and has a scar on one of her eyebrows from a prior piercing. She suffers from asthma.

If you have any information regarding Laura’s disappearance or her whereabouts, please contact the Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office at (727) 582-6153 or Crime Stoppers of Tampa Bay at (800) 873-TIPS (8477)
