Details of Disappearance

Vicente was last seen in Shiprock, New Mexico on June 3, 2018. Her husband dropped her off about a mile away from their residence so she could visit a friend. Vicente was very familiar with the area, having lived in Shiprock for most of her life. She never returned home that evening and has never been heard from again.

Vicente left behind a husband, six children and multiple grandchildren. In spite of her alcoholism, she has no history of dropping out of sight for days on end and would usually be home before dark. Her family does not believe she would have abandoned them. Her case remains unsolved.
