Details of Disappearance

Reynoso was last seen in Coachella, California on May 10, 2017. He disappeared with his girlfriend, Audrey Moran. The pair left Moran's mother's home in Coachella so Moran could drive Reynoso to his home in Palm Desert, California, but they never arrived and has never been heard from again.

At 9:00 a.m. on May 12, Moran and Reynoso's gray 2010 GMC Terrain with the California license plate numberĀ 6MIG265 was found on the roadside on westbound Interstate 10, west of Oak Valley Parkway, in Beaumont, California. The car had gas in it and was in good running condition when it was found. There was no sign of Reynoso or Moran of them at the scene. Dogs tracked their scents from where the car was parked, but lost the trail after twenty yards.

The couple's cellular phones disappeared with them and are apparently turned off, and Reynoso's wallet and Moran's purse have not been found either. There has been no suspicious activity on either of their financial accounts. Moran and Reynoso had a good relationship prior to their disappearances. It's completely uncharacteristic of them to leave without warning.

In June 2020, three suspects were arrested on suspicion of Moran and Reynoso's murders: Jesus Ruiz Jr., Abraham Fregoso, and Manuel Rios. Photos of all three are posted with this case summary. The suspects are awaiting trial. Authorities have not released much information about the evidence against them and how or why they think Moran and Reynoso were killed.

Foul play is suspected in their cases due to the circumstances involved.
