(LEX 18)– The family of a Northern Kentucky woman who went missing on the beach in Florida thinks she’s in the ocean somewhere.

66-year-old Nancy Meither was on vacation with her husband and was last seen by the water on Friday. Search teams are trying to find her.


Meither was on the beach watching the sunset with her husband last Friday. He went back to the condo to go to bed, but she stayed out on the beach. When her husband woke up, he said she wasn’t there.

Her son says search crews think a riptide may have swept her away.

“They’re just doing water searches right now. They’ve pretty much narrowed it down that she’s most likely in the ocean somewhere,” said her son.

When her husband first started looking for her, her beach chair was still on the sand, but the cup she was drinking out of was missing.

The family is helping search crews and hoping for answers.
