    Details of Disappearance

    Cruz was last seen at a rural home north of Sanger, California early in the morning of October 30, 2002. She was driving a light blue Ford pickup truck which belonged to the person with whom she was staying. Cruz told her friends that she had an appointment in Fresno, California. She drove away and never returned. At 8:00 a.m. that same day, a construction worker found the Ford on the bottom of a nearby canal. There was no sign of Cruz at the scene and no indication that she or anyone else had been injured or drowned in the vehicle. Cruz has never been heard from again. The circumstances surrounding her disappearance are unclear.
