1st Lt. Nonnie Ann Dotson is an Active Duty U.S. Air Force nurse who traveled to Littleton, Colorado to visit her brother, Tony Dotson (more about Tony below), on November 16, 2006 and disappeared on November 19, 2006. Nonnie Dotson was serving in the U.S. Air Force and stationed in San Antonio, Texas, but flew commercial air (Frontier Airlines) to Littleton, Colorado. She did not have a vehicle when she visited her brother, so when she left her brother’s house around noon on November 19, 2006, she did so either on foot or given a ride by a person or person unknown. Nonnie had told her brother that she was going to walk to a nearby shopping center since it was only a short distance away. Nonnie Ann Dotson was not seen or heard from again. A check of Nonnie Dotson’s cell phone shows that it was last used around the area of C-470 and the South Kipling Parkway in Denver, Colorado. This is the same area that police scent tracking dogs tracked her scent based off a piece of clothing she had left at her brother’s house. Nonnie Ann Dotson failed to use the return airline ticket to San Antonio, Texas. She has ties to Colorado where she grew up, as well as to San Antonio, Texas area due to her military service and because it is where the father of her child resides.
According to the Charley Project, “The night before she went missing, Dotson went to the Grizzly Rose country and western dance club, a popular Denver establishment. Two men at the club were allegedly seen “hassling” her while she was there and wanted to take her out to breakfast, but she refused to go and asked another patron to help her get away from the men. Authorities do not know whether either of the men were involved in her disappearance, but Dotson did make it home safe from the club and did not mention being frightened of anyone.”
Nonnie worked in the intensive care unit at Wilford Hall Medical Center on Lackland Air Force Base. Nonnie Dotson left behind a 16 month old daughter, whom she was raising as a single parent. Nonnie was known to be very involved in country western style dancing and frequented country western dance clubs in both Texas and Colorado. She was also known to have been involved in the use of online dating sites. Nonnie Dotson was scheduled to leave the Air Force in 2007 and was not known to use any drugs. Nonnie did consume alcohol, but only socially.
Nonnie Ann Dotson was 33 years old at the time she disappeared in 2006. Nonnie is 5 feet 2 inches tall to 5 feet 4 inches tall and weighed approximately 110 to 120 pounds at the time she went missing. Nonnie has long brown hair and brown eyes. Nonnie has a large scar on her left knee from a car accident and has a scar on her right shoulder from the top of her shoulder to her underarm. Nonnie also suffered from bunions on her feet and required surgery for the bunions. When Nonnie was last seen, she was wearing black pants, a white t-shirt and a gray hooded jacket and carrying a black purse.

Tony Dotson: Tony Dotson is the brother of Nonnie Dotson and was the last person to see her alive in 2006 when she left his house on foot (as mentioned above). Later, Tony had legal issues that are not connected with the disappearance of his sister, Nonnie Ann Dotson. In December, 2013, a Denver Grand Jury returned an indictment against “convicted rapist” Tony Dotson charging him with solicitation to commit first degree murder after “approaching several inmates about killing the victim in a sexual assault case” he was a part of.
