Details of Disappearance

Lopez was last seen in Newport, Washington on November 15, 2020. She has never been heard from again. Although her dog disappeared with her, she didn't take her purse or her clothes, and she hasn't used her food stamp card or her phone since her disappearance.

Because it's uncharacteristic of Lopez to leave without warning or be in touch with her family, foul play is suspected in her case. There have been rumors that a woman shot her in the head and discarded her body. Her disappearance remains unsolved.
