PELHAM – The Pelham Police Department is seeking the public’s help in locating a Chelsea woman who recently went missing.

According to the PPD, 45-year-old Lisa Michelle Holman’s unoccupied vehicle was found wrecked on Shelby County 36, between Bent Creek Drive and Brasher Road, on the morning of Saturday, Feb. 10.


Holman was last seen wearing a hot pink sweater and black leggings. She has long, brown hair and green eyes. Holman’s social media accounts identify her as the former Executive Director of the ALS Association’s Alabama Chapter and the former Alabama and Mississippi Area Director of the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention.

The PPD said law enforcement is using outside resources and fresh search canines to search the area where Holman’s vehicle was found.

Another search will begin at daybreak on Sunday, Feb. 11. Authorities said anyone interested in volunteering can meet at Chelsea High School at 6 a.m., and police officers will be onsite to provide instructions.

The PPD encouraged anyone who may have seen a woman fitting Holman’s description to contact them by calling 620-6550. Anyone who lives near the area where Holman’s vehicle was found is also urged to keep an eye out for her, but to not interfere with the law enforcement search.

During the second search, the PPD reported that Holman was found alive by a search team before 9 a.m.

“Thank you to everyone who shared the information, the volunteers who showed up to search and the media for helping us broadcast Lisa’s story,” read a post on the PPD’s Facebook page.

This report will be updated as new details emerge.
