A young Black woman who was living in Alabama and had not been heard from for two years since she was last seen in Europe has been found according to her family.
The Birmingham woman, Nicole Denise Jackson, 23, left Alabama to head to Germany with a man she met online at the end of 2018 and just stopped responding to phone calls and texts. Her family has stated that they hadn’t heard from her in two years.
Jackson, who is a singer, reportedly left to go to Germany to pursue her music. She had spoken with and also texted her friends and family until Christmas of 2018. She initially told her friends that she was going to school in Germany because of the free education it provides, and she was looking forward to the holidays.

The family also hired a private investigator, and it paid off last week when they were notified that she was alive and showed proof of identification.
Last Friday, Vaughn stated that the family was notified by the state department that Jackson came to them voluntarily and produced proof of her identification. The family has not yet spoken to her.
“I’m more at peace. I’d still like to hear her voice,’’ Vaughn said. “I’m happy to know our prayers have been answers. She’s safe and she’s OK.”
