Police release new photo of missing woman

July 11, 1996|By Ed Heard | Ed Heard,SUN STAFF

Howard County police hope a new photo released yesterday will help yield more clues in the July 1 disappearance of an Elkridge woman.

The new picture of Nancy Lee Riggins, 37, shows her wearing glasses and smiling with her mouth closed. A photo circulated earlier in the week showed Riggins without eyeglasses and looking to her left with a wide smile.

"The new photograph has a closer likeness," said Sgt. Steven Keller, a Howard police spokesman. Riggins has brown hair, brown eyes and weighs about 150 pounds, police said.

It's been more more than a week since Riggins was reported missing from her home in the 6100 block of Adcock Lane. No one has reported seeing or hearing from her since July 1, police said.

Stephen Riggins, her husband, told police he last saw her when she left 7: 30 a.m. July 1 to take their 5-year-old daughter to day care and go to work.

Stephen Riggins reported her missing July 3.

Police said the case is suspicious because there is no sign of forced entry into the home, and Nancy Riggins is not known to leave for long periods of time without notice.

Anyone with information can earn reward money by calling 313-3200 or 313-2248, police said.
