She spoke to her mother on the phone and her mother was concerned about her and offered to help her, but Gonzalez-Pinto declined. A few days later her mother got another call from Gonzalez-Pinto's number but didn't hear her daughter say anything. She only heard some men's voices in the background before the call was disconnected.

Gonzalez-Pinto has never been heard from again, and was reported missing on September 13. She left behind three young sons. Her case remains unsolved.
