Signal Mountain police searching for missing housewife

by J. Todd Foster

Signal Mountain police are searching for a housewife who has been missing since April 30.

Gail Nowacki Palmgren, 44, who lives in the St. Ives subdivision on Ridgerock Drive, has not been seen since driving away from her home in her four-door, dark red Jeep Wrangler Rubicon.

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 in Lake Jordan, Ala., and has been on 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 moved to the mountain in 2009 with her children and husband, Matt, director of pharmacy programs for BlueCross BlueShield of Tennessee’s government business and emerging markets business unit.

Gail Palmgren is 5 feet, 8 inches tall, 135 pounds and has blonde hair and brown eyes. Her Jeep has a black soft top and a personalized Alabama tag, EAZY ST.
