  • Details of Disappearance
    Teresa disappeared from her home on January 25, 2006. Also missing are a video camera, play station with games, digital camera, car stereo, and Teresa's purse and cell phone. Her boys were found in the morning hours of January 25, home alone, by their father after he came home from work. There was no forced entry, and her Jeep was still in the driveway.

    Friends and family say it's out of character for her to leave her children alone. Her husband has been ruled out as a suspect. Foul play is suspected.
