Nadia Missing 7 Months

Friday, June 5th, 2009

Nadia Kersh 

Hello everyone,

Yesterday was seven months since Nadia went missing in Homewood, Alabama.  It’s hard to believe it’s been over half a year.  It’s seems like a moment ago when we spoke about her coming to visit us in November…she was so excited.  It was going to be a long awaited reunion. 

Since we lived overseas we hadn’t seen Nadia for a couple of years.  We had talked about getting together sooner but because of other commitments it was difficult to get away and the trip from overseas was over 20 hours from time of departure to landing in the US.  So we kept postponing our visits until we moved back to the states, had our household goods shipped and unpacked in our new house.  Thanksgiving seemed like the optimal time to get together with Nadia and the baby.  As you know she didn’t make it and went missing on 3 November 08. 

As I’ve told some of Nadia’s friends, if you haven’t seen your parents, brother, sisters and/or other loved ones in some time, take the time to do so.  The moments we take for granted everyday go by for most of us unnoticed.  It only takes one of those moments to remove someone we love from our lives.  Try not to take people for granted and cherish every moment…you never know when your life could change forever by missing someone you love. 

There have been a number of times over the past several months when I find myself reaching for the phone to call Nadia and realize suddenly that she isn’t there.  I wonder where she is and if she might still be here with us somewhere waiting for us to find her. 

The Homewood police have been extremely helpful and continue to build a case against a prime suspect.  We are still waiting for DNA analysis to return from the FBI lab in Quantico, VA.  It has taken a long time for results to come in but I understand the FBI have been given a large amount of evidence and it takes time to analyze it all. 

Kevin and I would like to thank you all for your support as we continue our search for Nadia.  If you have any information about Nadia please, please call the Homewood, Alabama Police Department tip line at (205) 332-6262.  The reward for information leading to her whereabouts is $45,000.  Please help us find her.

Blessings to you,

Nancy Kersh
