Vital Statistics at Time of Disappearance
Details of Disappearance
Jeffrey Nichols disappeared under suspicious circumstances on June 8, 2004.
He was supposed to meet his ex-wife and 7-year-old son for breakfast at a McDonalds in Midvale but never arrived and has not been seen since.
Nichols' ex-wife told authorities he went to the wrong location that morning and the two exchanged phone calls. Eventually, about 6:50 a.m., Nichols reportedly told his ex-wife, "I can't do this now. I have to go."
That's the last anyone heard from him, except for an 18-second phone call to a car dealership, most likely a wrong number.
Jeff's vehicle, a white 2000 Ford Ranger, was towed from the 4800 South State Street block on July 15. Nichols' bank accounts and credit cards have been untouched, according to statements forwarded to his family.
Jeff worked as an air traffic controller at Salt Lake International Airport. He lived in the Parley's Way area (East of Salt Lake City). Jeff was originally from Northern Virginia and moved to Salt Lake City in 1998. Jeff's pride and joy is his seven-year-old son. He took advantage of every opportunity to spend time with him playing games, watching movies, and traveling.
Jeff has no history of mental illness, nor physical conditions that might explain his disappearance. When he disappeared, Jeff was planning to build a new house with his girlfriend, and had purchased airline tickets and made hotel reservations to visit his sister's family in Wisconsin.
