Information on the case from local sources, may or may not be correct : Rodriguez was last seen with her live-in boyfriend, Abraham Jimenez, in Roswell, New Mexico on April 19, 2015. They left their dogs behind at home without food or water, which is uncharacteristic of their behavior, and neither of them have ever been heard from again.
After their disappearance, the couple's van was found abandoned and in working condition on the street about a mile from their residence. Although there is no hard evidence of foul play, authorities consider their disappearances suspicious and are concerned for their welfare.
Rodriguez's son stated his mother and Jimenez had no enemies and he can't think of anyone who would want to hurt them, but he believes they were abducted from their home because it's uncharacteristic of them to leave without warning. Their cases remain unsolved.

A missing person is a person who has disappeared and whose status as alive or dead cannot be confirmed as their location and condition are not known. A person may go missing through a voluntary disappearance, or else due to an accident, crime, death in a location where they cannot be found (such as at sea), or many other reasons. In most parts of the world, a missing person will usually be found quickly. While criminal abductions are some of the most widely reported missing person cases, these account for only 2–5% of missing children in Europe.
By contrast, some missing person cases remain unresolved for many years. Laws related to these cases are often complex since, in many jurisdictions, relatives and third parties may not deal with a person's assets until their death is considered proven by law and a formal death certificate issued. The situation, uncertainties, and lack of closure or a funeral resulting when a person goes missing may be extremely painful with long-lasting effects on family and friends.
Several organizations seek to connect, share best practices, and disseminate information and imAge at the time of disappearance: s of missing children to improve the effectiveness of missing children investigations, including the International Commission on Missing Persons, the International Centre for Missing & Exploited Children (ICMEC), as well as national organizations, including the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children in the US, Missing People in the UK, Child Focus in Belgium, and The Smile of the Child in Greece.
