    Details of Disappearance

    Teresa resided in Sacramento, California with her family in 1999. She ran away from her home on two previous occasions when the family lived in Daly City, California in the late 1990s. Teresa was last seen on May 25, 1999. She drove to Stockton, California with three friends in a borrowed van during the day. Her friends told authorities that they dropped Teresa off at the Days Inn motel near Weber Street and Center Street. She has never been heard from again.

    Teresa's mother said that her daughter had a rebellious streak and was involved with drugs in 1999. She liked to go to the 2Pac Chat website. She had an abortion two to three months before her disappearance. Teresa may have been seen in San Francisco, California sometime after she went missing, but the sighting is unconfirmed. Her case remains unsolved. Sacramento authorities are handling her investigation.
