  • Details of Disappearance
    Rojas resided in an apartment in the 5500 block of Ackerfield Avenue in Long Beach, California in 2000. She was in the midst of divorcing her husband, who lived in the same apartment complex. Rojas dropped their young daughter off at his residence on October 19, 2000 for a court-ordered visitation. She returned to her own apartment with her boyfriend afterwards. Rojas' boyfriend departed between 12:15 AM - 12:30 AM on October 20. He told authorities that Rojas was asleep on her sofa at the time he left her home. Rojas has never been heard from again.

    Rojas was employed at a shelter for abused women in 2000. She failed to report to work on the morning of October 20. Her boyfriend attempted to call her at approximately 9:00 AM, but Rojas was not at home. Her black 1992 Nissan extra cab pickup truck with Texas license plates BY3242 was also missing from the complex's parking lot. Rojas' family members suspect that foul play was involved in her disappearance. They said it is uncharacteristic of her to leave her child without warning. Rojas' divorce attorney said that she was hoping to gain custody of her daughter in 2000. Rojas' vehicle has never been located. There have not been any arrests in connection with her case, which remains unsolved.
