Missing Nancy Marleine Snow
Snow, circa 1980
Missing Since 11/06/1980
Classification Endangered Missing
Date of Birth Used 07/13/1936 (84)
Age 44 years old
Height and Weight 5'6, 120 pounds
Clothing/Jewelry Description A bracelet and a white stone Fega (a Brazilian good luck charm shaped like a wrist with a hand in a fist and the thumb between the first and second knuckles) with a gold band on a long gold chain.
Distinguishing Characteristics Caucasian female. Graying dark brown hair, blue eyes. Snow broke her leg in several places in a skiing accident a few years before her disappearance. She has had a hysterectomy. Snow is double-jointed in both elbows and her second and third toes on both feet are deformed. She has extensive silver and white fillings in her teeth, including silver fillings in almost all her molars except her lower right third one. She has a gap between her front teeth.
Snow's housesitter, Paul T. Collins III, later stated that he drove Snow to her Annapolis home and she went out to McGarvey's, a local bar, for a drink. When she returned, she said she met a boat captain named "Captain Jay" (possibly spelled "Captain J") who told her he was driving to Fort Lauderdale, Florida that night to pick up a yacht and then deliver it to either the Bahamas or U.S. Virgin Islands.
Snow stated Captain Jay had hired her to help crew the boat and she would be back by Christmas. She told Collins to use her checkbook to pay bills while she was gone. Collins claims he saw her get into a white van and leave, but he could not remember the boat's name, any contact information, or what the captain looked like.
Snow's loved ones found Collins's story very suspicious; they stated that she was a devoted mother and a responsible individual who would be unlikely to leave with a stranger without telling her family where she was going, or to leave her checkbook in the care of a person she did not know.
She also left behind the majority of her personal belongings, including her boat shoes, makeup and jewelry. Collins says she only packed one bag and took $1,000 in cash. Snow had repeatedly told her three daughters that she was exhausted from campaigning and looking forward to a rest, so they find it difficult to believe that she would have abruptly gone to Florida.
She had kept in touch with them by mail almost daily while she away, but none of them have heard from her since November 1980. She missed one daughter's sixteenth birthday that month as well. Snow's oldest daughter reported her as a missing person in January 1981.
Snow's disappearance remains unsolved. There has been no activity on her Social Security number since her disappearance and she never used her credit cards or withdrew anything from her bank account, although she had inherited a sum of money shortly before her disappearance. She formerly worked as a talk show host in California.
Snow speaks seven languages, formerly lived in Brazil and West Germany, and has traveled extensively all over the world. She was declared legally dead in 1985. Foul play is suspected in her case.
