Melisa Maureen Sloan
Missing since May 1, 1994 from Orlando, Orange County, Florida
Classification: Endangered Missing

Vital Statistics

Circumstances of Disappearance
Melisa Sloan was last seen on May 1, 1994 at her apartment on South Kirkman Road, in Orlando, Florida. Her out-of-state family reported her missing after not hearing from her.

At the time of her disappearance Sloan was working as a nurse. Melisa's Social Security number, credit cards and nursing license have not been used since she went missing.

Melisa was born in Bardstown and graduated from Bardstown High School in 1988, and from Spencerian College in Louisville, KY, two years later. She moved to Florida with her husband in 1993. Police were called to Sloan's home twice while they were in Florida for domestic disturbances. During a subsequent visit by police, the husband told police that Melisa had packed her belongings and left him for another man, and that he last saw her on May 1. He told police he didn't know the identity of the other man or how Melisa could be contacted. While most of Melisa's possessions were gone from the apartment, she didn't take her car and she didn't take her cat. She always kept in contact with her family.

Two jail escapees from Oklahoma kidnapped her father from a truck stop off I-65 in Hardin County and took him to the woods in southern Bullitt County. They shot Frank Brady twice and left him to bleed to death less than three years before Melisa's disappearance.

No one has ever been charged in Melisa's disappearance.  Foul play has not been ruled out.
