UPDATE 4/20/16 – New information has come out on this case.  We now know that Nicole called in sick for her shift on Wednesday.  She also sent a text message to her dad at 10:50 that morning.  The family has tried to get access to her cell phone records, but the company will not accommodate them, which they do not have to do because of privacy laws.  Also, because Nicole’s disappearance is not considered foul play, the police can not subpoena the records.  The family did know she downloaded several files and are wondering if they were maps.

Nicole K. Mittendorff, 31, is a career firefighter and paramedic with the Fairfax County Fire Department.  She was to report to work on Friday for her shift but she did not show up.  Her last contact was via text messages about 10:50 a.m. from the area of Warrenton, VA (Fauquier County) on Wednesday, according to a FindNicole Facebook page. Her father also stated in a post that she participates in triathlons, and possibly she was in that area to train and she is hurt in a location with no cell service.  Note that the area she traveled to is over a hour away from her home.  There has been questions why Nicole deleted her Facebook account and according to her sister she did it because of a personal matter related to rude posts sent to her.

Nicole is 5’6″ tall, 125 pounds with blonde hair and green eyes.
