About Nina:  

Nina Reiser was a beautiful, intelligent, compassionate, caring, devoted mother of two young kids, Rory, age 7 and Niorline, age 5. Nina was a trained medical doctor from Russia; she moved to the US in 1999 and lived in Oakland, CA until her disappearance.

Nina was last seen dropping her kids off with her estranged husband in the Montclair neighborhood of Oakland, around 2:00 pm on Sunday, September 3, 2006. She had planned to visit with a friend around 6:00 pm that evening but never arrived. She was reported missing on Tuesday, September 5, 2006 after she failed to pick her kids up from school. Her car was found by the police in Montclair on Saturday, September 9, 2006. Nina’s purse and groceries were still in the car.

Neighborhood residents believed that the car had been left there since September 5. After her disappearance, dozens of people who had known and loved Nina, who had been touched by her smile and kindness, contributed time, effort and money to help find her.

Hundreds of others who simply could not accept that a mother of two young kids, with no history of mental illness or running away, could disappear between Berkeley and Oakland on a sunny Sunday afternoon held vigils, scoured the Oakland Hills for evidence and clues, distributed flyers and passed the word to friends, relative and acquaintances. Ultimately, Oakland Police determined that Nina had been murdered and arrested her estranged husband who is currently awaiting trial.
