BENTONVILLE (KFSM) — Police are asking for the public’s help in finding Christy Ann Nichols, who was last seen Aug. 6 at Catalyst Church in Bentonville.

Nichols, 45, of Noel, Mo., is considered in danger, according to Chief Deputy Lorie Howard with the Noel Marshal’s Office.

An anonymous donor has offered a $1,000 reward for information leading to a conclusion in the case, Howard said.

Anyone with information on Nichols’ whereabouts is urged to call police at 417-475-3777.

Nichols is white, about 5-foot-9 and weighs roughly 145 pounds. She has auburn hair down to her shoulders and green eyes, Howard said.

Nichols was last seen wearing a fitted dress — all one color — that was between burnt orange and red, with heels and jewelry, Howard said.

Nichols drives a black 2008 Mazda 6 with a license plate of 542 VDU and Arkansas tags.

Nichols was last seen leaving church about 12:30 p.m. on Aug. 6, Howard said. She left all of her personal belongings behind and her home appears undisturbed, Howard said.

Nichols’ family said she doesn’t have a history of disappearances and wouldn’t have missed her son’s birthday, Howard said.

Nichols’ family has organized a prayer vigil for 6:30 p.m. Thursday (Aug. 31) at Orchards Park in Bentonville.
