Monica went missing on the evening of October 1, 2003, she was 16 years old at the time, and police fear she may be in danger. She was last seen at her aunt and uncle’s home near Balmorhea, Texas and it is believed that she left the residence between 11:00 pm and 7:30am the following morning. Monica’s family is unsure on the reasoning behind her leaving, though she may have to meet someone, possibly whom she met through the internet. She was on anti-depressant medication and suffers from low blood sugar and may need medical attention. Monica lost over fifty pounds following the death of her father in 2000 and was hospitalized for anorexia nervosa. Monica was a junior at Alpine High school at the time of her disappearance but was known to be a very religious person. There is a lost girl out there, while her case is still unsolved.
