    Details of Disappearance
    Ormerod, who resides in Maindee, Newport, South Wales, left the United Kingdom on November 16, 2002, to travel to Chicago for a Guns n' Roses rock concert on November 18. It is established that she arrived safely at Chicago; she used her cashpoint card in that city after checking out of her hotel. She was travelling alone and was expected to return to the United Kingdom by November 20, but did not and has never been heard from again. A person matching her description was seen in downtown Newport on January 31, two and a half months after she was last heard from, but it has not been confirmed that the woman was in fact Ormerod. Ormerod was last seen wearing a gray shirt, blue denim jeans, black shoes and a black leather raincoat. She is described as a free-spirited, independent person who has left without warning before, but she had never left the country before, and previous times when she disappeared she would always contact her family after a few months. Ormerod's family initially believed she may have decided to follow the Guns n' Roses band across the United States, but when their tour ended she did not return home. Her parents now fear she may have met with foul play. Ormerod's case remains unsolved. British police are investigating.
