TOLEDO, Ohio (WTVG) - A Wood County woman went missing without a trace 15 years ago, but now investigators are reopening the case of 37-year-old Sheila Main.

Main’s son Clinton Bulik was 16 years old when his mother went missing from her Pemberville Rd. home in August 2006. He says he doesn’t remember anything unusual about the time leading up to his mother’s disappearance. She would leave for periods, but he says “It would be just hours, it was never just long periods of time where she would disappear.”

Clinton says when Sheila met her then-husband, Alan, they married quickly within a year. And Bulik says the relationship wasn’t going well and she was planning to leave him.

“I believe at the stage in the process we were starting the process of moving on, just with us on our own,” he said. “And before that got anywhere, she was gone.”

Wood County Sheriff’s Investigators say her then-husband waited five days to report her missing because he had said she struggled with addiction and it wasn’t uncommon for her to leave for periods of time. Sheila’s son Clinton confirmed that his mother did struggle with addiction over the years, but that at the time of her disappearance it was not an issue.

“At that date and time of her disappearance, friends and family said that she was in rehab and she was going to AA meetings,” Wood County Detective Ryan Richards said.

13abc spoke by phone to Main’s then-husband Alan, who declined an invitation for an on-camera interview. Police say they have never named him as a suspect or person of interest in Shiela’s disappearance.

There was only one lead that police had at the time of Main’s disappearance and they’ve been unable to confirm it.

“The report was her car was broke down in the middle of the road,” Det. Richards said. “Somebody saw her, she was acting very strange. They called Oregon Police and she ended up leaving the area with an unknown person or persons.”
