    Details of Disappearance

    Rodriguez was last seen in Ceiba, Puerto Rico on August 31, 2000. He was reportedly accompanied by Roberto Gonzalez Cruz. The men were aboard Cruz's boat, La Gaviota (English translation: The Gull), at the time of their disappearances. La Gaviota's identification number is PR5966AA. Neither the men nor the vessel have been seen again.

    There is a discrepancy between the dates of Rodriguez and Cruz's disappearances. Cruz was reported missing on April 29, 2000, over four months prior to the published date of Rodriguez's disappearance.
