Nicole Mallett/Bates County, Mo.

BUTLER, Mo. -- Dive teams, boats, drones and police dogs are searching in Missouri for a missing mother.

The Bates County Sheriff's Office said in a Facebook post Nicole Mallatt, 36, was last seen or heard from on November 26.

KCTV reports Mallatt texted one of her daughters last Tuesday saying she was leaving for a few hours, but she never came back. Her aunt, Linda Diveley Mallatt, says she is convinced something happened after Mallatt didn't call her children on Thanksgiving.
