Memorial service for Blanca Roberson

According to this article, the sister of Blanca “Elisa” Roberson has returned home for the first time in seventeen years to conduct a memorial service for her on the twentieth anniversary of her disappearance, which is in two days.

I hope this bit of publicity leads to something in Elisa’s disappearance; the cops don’t have a lot to go on and she hasn’t gotten a lot of media attention. I wonder if perhaps she ran away, at least at first. Her age and her odd behavior on the day of her disappearance may indicate she was planning to leave. But whatever caused her disappearance in 1989, I’m pretty sure she’s dead now.

    I’m saddened to hear that not much has happened regarding Ms. Roberson… She and I lived together, briefly, in San Diego, CA, where I currently reside. I did my best to befriend her and even spent Christmas ’08 with her, but she took off not long after that. When I saw her “missing” poster I immediately contacted the Missing & Exploited Kids Network to tell them what I knew, though I do not know if they have been able to follow up on the info I gave them. As far as I know, she is still here in San Diego. I also e-mailed the Aransas Pass Police Dept, but never got a reply from them either. Of course, if I do see her again I will do my best to continue helping in this matter.
