FBI joins search for 45-year-old missing nurse from Cuyahoga Falls​

The FBI is providing assistance in the disappearance of 45-year-old Nichole Bronowski, an Akron Children's Hospital nurse who has been missing for nearly a week.

Federal agents are also assisting authorities in Belmont County, where Bronowski's mother was killed on Thanksgiving, the victim of a homicide, according to multiple law enforcement sources.

Bronowski was last seen on Nov. 25 around 6:30 p.m. in Cuyahoga Falls. It's unknown what vehicle she may be traveling in, according to a news release.

According to a police report, Bronowski's ex-husband reported her missing on Thanksgiving, stating she hasn't been seen or heard from, and her whereabouts were unknown.

Cuyahoga Falls police would not answer questions about the case on Tuesday, including whether there is any connection between Bronowski's disappearance and her mother's death.

A news conference scheduled to take place in Belmont County Tuesday morning was abruptly canceled.

Bronowski's mother, 69-year-old Norma Matko, was killed at her home in Barnesville, about 115 miles southeast of Cuyahoga Falls. Her cause of death has not been released.

Strange. What an odd statement they don't know "what vehicle she is traveling in". It makes it sound as if she left on her own but they don't know which vehicle she took, although that would make no sense. The other way to take it is that they know she is in a vehicle but not which one which still sounds odd.

Also strange they had a news conference scheduled and then canceled it. Perhaps they developed a lead?

So the mother was killed on Thanksgiving and this woman was reported missing by her ex-husband on Thanksgiving?? Yet she was last seen on the 25th, the day after Thanksgiving... EDITING TO ADD I HAVE THAT WRONG--WAS DAY BEFORE THANKSGIVING WHICH MAKES MORE SENSE.

If not connected at all, it certainly is a strange coincidence.

Praying this woman is found safe.

The 25th was the day BEFORE Thanksgiving. And then her mother was killed on Thanksgiving, and she was reported missing that same day.

But, she's been found ALIVE! Circumstances are certainly unclear at this time. (Unsure if she was with the suspect willingly or abducted?!) More info supposed to come later today.


Missing nurse found alive after suspect in mother's death killed during FBI raid in Louisiana, sources say​

Two law enforcement sources have confirmed that Nichole Bronowski, a 45-year-old Akron Children’s Hospital nurse who has been missing for nearly a week has been found alive.

The location where she was found is unknown at this time.

On Tuesday night, a person wanted in connection with the death of 69-year-old Norma Matko, Bronkowski's mother, was shot and killed during the execution of an arrest warrant in Pineville, Louisiana, according to a statement from the New Orleans FBI Division.

The Belmont County Sheriff's Office will hold a news conference on this case at 11:30 a.m.

That makes much more sense. Do you know what I did? Since it was December 1st and I did not realize it, I hit the calendar on my laptop and looked at the 25th which said Friday but I was in the month of December, not November. Sorry about that!

So someone was shot and killed during execution of a warrant and we have travel from Ohio to Louisiana.

I am glad she is safe. Unclear what happened then so far but clearly her disappearance and her mother's murder are connected since she is now safe and a man dead relating to her mother's murder.

Now the question is did she go with this person willingly or not

Exactly. I could see a domestic situation, abusive bf, etc. kills the mom to force daughter to go with him. Was daughter at moms for Thanksgiving? On the other hand, the pair could have done something to mom and then taken off together...

Her ex husband reported her missing... I don't see a perp calling attention to someone missing if they have the person but who knows... I do wonder though how he knew she was missing...

Not accusing anyone, just posing possibilities. There sure is no hint in the news thus far. I am leaning towards she was perhaps a hostage because the man ended up dead but she is safe... Of course that means nothing either, he may have resisted and she did not... It does not even say she was found with the man or where she was found but that seems a no brainer that it was the same place/event...

The article also states that the suspect was shot and killed by FBI agents.

I wonder what his motive was? :eek:

An Ohio man fatally shot a woman and kidnapped her daughter before fleeing to a hotel in Pineville, where he wounded a New Orleans-based FBI agent before being killed in a shootout with law enforcement late Tuesday, according to authorities.


Authorities at Wednesday’s news conference said the trail leading to Holley began when Matko was found fatally shot in her home in Belmont County, Ohio, on Thanksgiving. Her 45-year-old daughter, Thoue Nichole Bronowski, an ex-girlfriend of Holley, was then reported missing the following day to police in Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio, about 100 miles away.

Jeff Fortunato of the FBI’s office in Cleveland said agents soon determined Holley had abducted Bronowski and was fleeing Ohio after killing Matko. Fortunato said Holley had published photos online of himself with guns, along with statements that “he wanted to kill some cops.”


Meanwhile, law enforcement officials by Wednesday had interviewed Bronowski and were working to reunite her with her family. Fortunato made it a point to call Bronowski a victim in the case, and he said the decision to involve agents in New Orleans — about 200 miles away from Pineville — spoke to the urgency of capturing Holley.

Okay, so it was an ex. I'm betting there was an altercation of some kind that prompted the violence.

I'm glad Nichole was found safe! Sending up prayers for her family over the loss of her mom. :(

I wonder if there was some sort of previous violence here or a restraining order and whether this was a recent break-up. Her ex-husband reported her missing on the holiday of Thanksgiving. I wonder how you would be so sure so fast she was missing the very same day unless he knew of issues maybe she was having? We don't even know I don't think that she was at her mother's but I assume so... Yet she was reported missing in her area... Still confused on some points. Not sure we will ever know as there will be no charges.

Relieved she is okay but sad and tragic her mother is dead.

The perp not only killed her mother, he carved something in her back and he raped her mother. On True Crime Daily.

Maybe everyone knows this but in the event someone else reads this case at a future date, adding some info.

He took the daughter first in Cuyahoga Falls and they went to her mother's. Did what he did to the mother after some time and he took mother's car and headed with Nichole. At a point, he abandoned that car, set it on fire and used another...

Sends an ominous message to his 16 year old on the Friday after Thanksgiving.

He then posts pics on social media with pistols showing Nichole's apartment... (taken earlier)...

He then posts he wants to kill some cops... All while on the run with the daughter taken...

Sounds like this allowed federal charges and a warrant which allowed him to be tracked federally and interstate to also help save her and find him...

They then traced phone to motel on Tuesday where shoot out occurs... Nichole rescued, perp dead...

No real knowledge on why went out of way to mother's or bound, raped and killed her...

What a disgusting piece of filth! At least the family doesn't have to go through the pain of a trial.

My prayers go out to Nichole and her family.
It is kind of bittersweet isnt it? He is evil and he is gone which is good imo. No watching justice play out though or him behind bars BUT as you say they don't have to go through that at least or years of the slow process or worry about his sentence...
