She had moved in during the fall of 2016.
She remained on good terms with her husband. He reported her missing on March 30. He had been unable to get in touch with her since the middle of the month, but he waited to report her missing because she had left for brief periods before and then returned.
It's possible Crider went to the Newark, Ohio area after her disappearance. Due to her state of health, there is grave concern for her safety; she could die without medical treatment. Her loved ones stated she was not suicidal, but she had spoken about dying and told her husband to take care of their children if anything happened to her.
Although Crider was battling drug addiction at the time of her disappearance, her family doesn't believe she overdosed, and she has never gone for this long without contacting loved ones. Her disappearance remains unsolved.

A missing person is a person who has disappeared and whose status as alive or dead cannot be confirmed as their location and condition are not known. A person may go missing through a voluntary disappearance, or else due to an accident, crime, death in a location where they cannot be found (such as at sea), or many other reasons. In most parts of the world, a missing person will usually be found quickly. While criminal abductions are some of the most widely reported missing person cases, these account for only 2–5% of missing children in Europe.
By contrast, some missing person cases remain unresolved for many years. Laws related to these cases are often complex since, in many jurisdictions, relatives and third parties may not deal with a person's assets until their death is considered proven by law and a formal death certificate issued. The situation, uncertainties, and lack of closure or a funeral resulting when a person goes missing may be extremely painful with long-lasting effects on family and friends.
Several organizations seek to connect, share best practices, and disseminate information and imAge at the time of disappearance: s of missing children to improve the effectiveness of missing children investigations, including the International Commission on Missing Persons, the International Centre for Missing & Exploited Children (ICMEC), as well as national organizations, including the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children in the US, Missing People in the UK, Child Focus in Belgium, and The Smile of the Child in Greece.
