On October 15th, 2016, 55 year old Nancy Paulikas visited the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, also known as LACMA, with her husband Kirk and some other family members. The year before, Nancy was diagnosed with early onset Alzheimer's disease. She had severe dementia and had problems communicating, and by October of 2016, caring for her was Kirk's full time job.
The trip to LACMA was going well, and Nancy was having a good day. But when the two got separated, Nancy vanished. After an hour of not finding her around the museum, Kirk called the police. Shockingly, Nancy has never been found.
The last traces of her are surveillance video images of her on Wilshire and McCarthy Vista, an intersection not far from LACMA. Since her disappearance, Kirk, along with an incredible team of friends and family, has mounted an incredible effort to find her. Both Kirk's team and investigators believe it is likely that Nancy is alive, right now, in a medical facility where they cannot get any information about her, and that she may be misidentified with an incorrect social security number.
