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.
