    Details of Disappearance

    Pabon was last seen leaving work at St. Francis Medical Center in Chesterfield, Virginia at 6:13 p.m. on June 6, 2014. She sent a text message to a friend at 9:30 p.m., canceling plans they'd had to meet up. She has never been heard from again. At 6:25 the next morning, Pabon's white four-door 2009 Nissan Altima with the Virginia license plate number JZN-1429 was seen driving away from her townhouse in the 5300 block of Terrace Arbor Circle. A photo of a similar car is posted below this case summary. Fourteen minutes later, surveillance video showed John Gibbs II, her live-in boyfriend and the father of her four-year-old son, walking up to their home alone. About twelve hours after that, a white late model truck and trailer picked up Pabon's car and hauled it away from where it had been parked near her home. Investigators don't know who was driving the truck and would like to identify that person.

    Pabon was reported missing on June 9 after she didn't show up for work at the hospital. Her car wasn't found until June 16; it turned up in the Greenleigh Mobile Home Park in the 14100 block of Drumvale Drive, off Jeff Davis Highway, sixteen miles away from her home. There was no sign of Pabon at the scene. She didn't know anyone in that area and had no reason to go there.

    Authorities stated Gibbs has not cooperative in the investigation in Pabon's disappearance. Although there was no reported history of domestic violence between them, Pabon told a friend she felt unsafe in their home and she was going to leave Gibbs in July and move into her own apartment with their son. Gibbs has not been named as a suspect in Pabon's case, however, and neither has anyone else. He has since moved out of the home he'd shared with Pabon.

    It's uncharacteristic of Pabon to leave without warning, and she's described as a devoted mother who would never have abandoned her two children. Foul play is possible in her case. It remains unsolved.
