    Details of Disappearance

    Andrea departed her cousin's on Cottonwood Circle in Corsicana, Texas on January 22, 2004, in a white pickup truck with two Hispanic males. She returned home later that night, got into a brown vehicle and left again. She has never been heard from again.

    Andrea had a young child in foster care at the time of her disappearance, and she went missing the day before a scheduled visit. Her loved ones don't believe she would voluntarily have missed the visit. Since she disappeared there hasn't been any activity on her Social Security number or any other paper trail. Although some agencies classify her as a runaway, authorities believe Andrea may have come to harm. Her case remains unsolved.
