Gonzales's blue 1982 Pontiac Bonneville was found in a parking lot off of Devil's Alley near South Adams Street. Her purse and driver's license were in the trunk, but the car keys were missing, as well as her brown work briefcase. Three people reported seeing her the day after her reported disappearance.
Investigators believe Gonzales met with foul play, as it is uncharacteristic of her to leave without warning. She had spent several years with the Trappist nuns in Iowa and had contemplated joining the order. Her case remains unsolved.
