April 2, 2012

It is with a heavy heart that I post this. Sadly Heather Braaten’s body was found yesturday.

Heather Nicole are loved

Heather Nicole Braaten…you are loved

Thank you for the love, prayers and support you shared and thank you for your efforts made in Heather’s search, whether it be blogging about it, handing out flyers or searching in your own neighborhoods. Unfortunately her body was found yesterday, April 1st 2012. She valued her friendships and especially the LEGO community. Her family said it was ok for me to post this image and this write up. These are all the details I know for now and I will keep you all posted as I know more.

Her passing is a great loss to the whole AFOL community and especially to those of us who knew her. She was the founder of the FFOL Brick Chick Flickr group and one of the few well known female LEGO builders out there.

I naturally found an instant kinship with her and will miss her beautiful smile and sense of humor.

I found a couple pictures I took of Heather from the 2010 BrickWorld Chicago

My condolences to her family and all of the friends she’s left behind. I am grateful I was able to be counted among them.

Sig Fig and Heather

Heather, I will miss you.

Normally I like to keep this blog a happy, worry free place, but this is too important not to post.

Fellow female LEGO Fan and friend Heather Braaten is missing!
Heather Braaten (aka "LEGOgirl") is Missing

Lino of Lugnuts fame had this to say

Her name is Heather Braaten and went by HeatherLEGOgirl here online. A couple months ago she removed her flickr, facebook, and MOCPages profiles but now her mother had called me this morning stating that she was missing and has been since last Tuesday. Police are on the search but her family would like to know her whereabouts any way possible. Here is a photo of her.

If anyone knows her whereabouts or knows when you contacted her last, please chime in here. And if Heather you are out there, please let us know. You have a lot of people worried about you, honey.

Any knowledge of her well being would be appreciated. Thanks in advance


Heather, if you are out there and reading this, please at least contact your parents. And know that we of the LEGO community that know you love and miss you!

If any of you know anything about Heather please contact the Seattle Police.
