The vehicle of a missing nanny was found Thursday, according to Winter Park police, who continue to try to identify a person of interest in her disappearance .
Jennifer Lynn Fulford, 56, of Altamonte Springs, was last seen late Wednesday morning leaving her dentist’s office in Winter Park.
Winter Park police said Fulflord, a wife, mother of two and grandmother, vanished “under suspicious circumstances.”
Authorities said they found her vehicle, a gray 2015 Hyundai SUV that is being processed for forensic evidence, in Orange County.
Photos released by Winter Park police show a man accessing Fulfords’ bank account at an ATM. The man, identified by police as a person of interest, was seen wearing a Workout 32789 shirt in surveillance photos.
In a Facebook post, the gym posted: “The entire Workout 32789 family, employees and clients are praying for the speedy and safe return of Jennifer Lynn Fulford. The person of interest featured in the media photo has never been an employee or client of this studio. Our thoughts remain with Jennifer and her family.”
Winter Park police said they have received between 40 and 50 tips about the person of interest, but still do not know his whereabouts or identity.
“Valuable evidence” has been gathered from the car belonging to Jennifer Fulford, the Winter Park woman who went missing Sept. 27, police said Saturday.
Her husband, Robert Fulford, said in a Facebook post that her purse was found on the floor of the house where she worked. She was supposed to fly out to Dallas on Thursday to see her newborn granddaughter, he said.

Knowing that her ATM was used by the man in the photos isn’t very encouraging. This case could go any direction. I truly hope for the best. Didn’t She go missing on the day she was supposed to fly out? That’s peculiar. This man used her ATM so we have to find her. Please share her photo. Please share HIS photo as well because he’s the ticket to locating her.
Her body was found. Smh
