As Winter Storm Approaches, Police Continue to Search for Missing Germantown Woman

Last Wednesday night as the rain was falling and the warm air was creating a thick low clinging fog throughout the Germantown area, Nancy Strohmeyer, was seen walking in front of her condo building by a neighbor who was leaving to run an errand. It was the last time anyone had seen or heard from the 66-year-old Germantown resident.

With a snowstorm bearing down on the area on Monday afternoon, Montgomery County Police detectives were searching in the woods behind the missing woman’s apartment in the hope of finding her before the storm arrives. While police are concerned for her welfare, there is no foul play suspected in this missing person case.

Nancy Eileen Strohmeyer, 66, of Millhaven Place in Germantown has been missing since Wednesday, Feb. 8. Police have utilized various tactics to try and locate her, including vehicle and foot patrols of local community and shopping centers, specialized scent tracking bloodhounds and other trained K9s, helicopters equipped with technology to help locate individuals as well as visual surveillance of the area.

According to family, she had been suffering from symptoms consistent with rapid onset dementia. She is in need of daily medications which she does not have with her.

“With the impending weather that is moving in tonight detectives are making this a priority in trying to locate her,” said MCPD spokesman Officer Rick Goodale. “Detectives are very concerned about her welfare, given the night that she went missing was a rainy and foggy night.”
