Nolan was last seen on March 18 at approximately 2:30 p.m. when she said she was “going on a walk,” police said. New Beginnings, which serves homeless and runaway youth, contacted police at 4 p.m. when she did not return.

Police say Nolan may have left the area “willingly” with a 23-year-old male whom she had been in contact with through social media. Police say the man, of Vacaville, California, may have picked up Nolan driving a blue 2001 Ford Mustang with California license plate 5LQL188.

Nolan is described as 5 feet, 4 inches and 180 pounds with blonde hair and blue eyes. She was last seen wearing a brown sweatshirt, gray pants, sneakers and eyeglasses, police say.

Police ask anyone with information to call the Lewiston Police Department at 207-784-6421 or Detective Joey Brown at 207-513-3001, extension 3322.
