Missing: Gail Nowacki Palmgren
Family friend Arlene Durham said Palmgren is a devoted mother of two children, a 9-year-old girl and a 12-year-old boy.
“I think she’s so scared right now she doesn’t know what to do,” said Durham, who lives on Lake Jordan, Ala., and has been in Signal Mountain all week searching for Palmgren. “If she’s not hiding, then something happened to her. You don’t just up and leave. She’s not that type of person.”
Palmgren, a native of Buffalo, N.Y., moved to Signal Mountain in 2009 from Louisville, Ky., with her children and husband, Matt, director of pharmacy programs for BlueCross BlueShield of Tennessee’s government business and emerging markets business unit.
