Missing Woman Found - Update

Boise, April 2,  2013, 7:00 pm - The missing woman has been located. Officers have found her safe and were able to confirm her well being. Thanks to all.



Boise, April 2, 2013 - Boise Police are asking the public's help in locating a woman reported missing in late February.

Officers have no evidence that foul play is involved at this time. However, the woman is reportedly in need of medications that she's not believed to have access to and she's missed several important commitments, leading officers and her family to be concerned for her welfare. 

Endangered Missing Woman: The woman is Melissa Sue Gillespie, 33 of Boise, aka Melissa Johnson, Melissa Miller.

She's described as 5'1", 120 pounds with blonde hair and hazel eyes. 

Melissa Sue Gillespie was reported missing to Boise Police Feb. 23, 2013.

She was last seen Feb 15th leaving a relatives home near N. 16th and W. State Streets. Boise Police were able to confirm she visited a retailer on Fairview Ave., March 1st. but have not been able to locate her since.

Again, there is no evidence of foul play at this time, but Gillespie's well being reportedly is dependant on medication that she's not believed to have with her. She has also failed to arrive at several important commitments that family members believe she would not chose to miss.

Contact BPD: Officers would like to contact Ms. Gillespie to confirm her wellbeing. If anyone can help officers locate her, they're urged to contact BPD Detectives at 570-6290.
