Details of Disappearance

Juan was reported missing on October 29, 2010, but she was last seen sometime on or after September 8. She was last seen walking away from Hoopa Elementary School on Highway 96 in Hoopa, California. She left behind a young daughter and has never been heard from again.

Authorities stated they were hoping to speak to Robert Hodge Jr. and Debra Jealous-Of-Him, both Hoopa residents, about Juan's disappearance. Neither of them are suspects in her case, but police believe they were with Juan around the time of her disappearance.

Hodge is described as about 5'11 and 230 pounds, with black hair, brown eyes and possibly a goatee; he was 35 years old in 2010. Jealous-Of-Him is described as 5'4 and 180 pounds, with long black hair and brown eyes; she was 48 years old. Both are Native American.

The circumstances of Juan's disappearance are unclear. Her case remains unsolved.
