    Details of Disappearance

    Rubio called her mother and said she would be returning to her family's residence after picking up her two children from their babysitter's home in Shreveport, Louisiana on January 27, 1999. She never arrived at the sitter's house and has never been heard from again.

    Rubio had spent part of the day at Barksdale Air Force Base in Bossier City, Louisiana. She was discussing a custody hearing regarding her children scheduled for the following day with her former husband, Jesse McGay. McGay was a Senior Airman in the United States Air Force at the time. Security records indicate that Rubio arrived on base on January 27, but outgoing visitors' logs are not recorded. It is not known if Rubio departed from the facility. Her family has said that it is extremely uncharacteristic of her to leave without alerting her loved ones as to her plans.

    Rubio's white 1994 Ford Probe was discovered abandoned at the Stoner Avenue boat ramp on the Red River in Shreveport shortly after she disappeared. The ramp is located across the river from the base. There was no sign of Rubio at the scene, but her purse and shoes were inside the vehicle, which had been ransacked.

    McGay was tranferred to Osan Air Force Base in Korea sometime after his former wife vanished. He fled from Korea shortly after his transfer and left a letter behind stating that he had "unfinished business" to deal with in the United States. McGay was apprehended in Dallas, Texas in November 1999, ten months after Rubio disappeared. McGay reportedly had a history of violent behavior towards Rubio and others. He has never been charged in connection with her case, but he lost custody of their daughter after Rubio vanished. The child is being raised by her mother's parents.

    Authorities spent three days searching for Rubio's remains in an area near the boat ramp in Shreveport in March 2001. Investigators believed they located a possible section of interest at the site, but conditions did not allow further excavation at the time. Rubio's case remains unsolved and foul play is suspected in her disappearance.
