Details of Disappearance

Rogers was last seen home in the 1000 block of Horizon View Boulevard in Port Orange, Florida between 5:20 and 6:00 p.m. on February 1, 2010. Her brother went into the backyard and when he returned, Rogers was gone. Her brother thought one of her friends had picked her up either at the residence itself or at a nearby convenience store.

At 6:43 p.m., one of Rogers's friends got a suspicious call from her cellular phone. A man named Jamal spoke to her. According to the signal, the phone was in New Port Richey, Florida at the time. Rogers's phone was never used again and has since been turned off. She has never been heard from again. She left all her medication behind at home.

Rogers has been known to frequent Daytona Beach, Florida in areas known for drug activity, and to use and sell prescription drugs. Her mother stated that when Rogers's prescription medications could not ease her chronic pain, she sometimes bought drugs on the street.

Since her disappearance, Rogers hasn't filled any of her prescriptions or used her bank account. Her mother said they were close and kept in regular contact before her disappearance.

At the time of her disappearance, Rogers was on probation for a 2009 theft conviction. She had no prior criminal record and her probation period was scheduled to end in 2012. She is classified as an absconder in addition to being a missing person.

It's uncharacteristic of her to leave without warning and she is believed to be at risk due to the state of her health. Her case remains unsolved.
