  • Details of Disappearance
    Cynthia, a resident of the 10700 block of Georgia Avenue in Wheaton, spoke to her father in Brazil,
    as she did every day. That was her last known contact with anyone. Braga's adult sister, who
    lives in the area, also has not had any contact with her.

    In December 2005, Montgomery County Police learned that Cynthia's husband, Roberto Ferreira Braga, had
    physically assaulted his girlfriend in November 2005. He held a knife to her throat and threatened that
    no one would ever find her body. He was arrested and charged with first-degree assault on March 10. He was
    released on his own recognizance. Police now have reason to believe that foul play is possible in Cynthia's
