    Maria Jimenez-Rodriguez (29) missing from Houston, TX since 6/21/18

    https://www.chron.com/news/houston-t...n-13021581.php

    A 29-year-old Houston mother vanished earlier this week, and now Texas EquuSearch teams have launched a search.

    Maria Jimenez-Rodriguez was last seen Thursday morning around 8 a.m., when she left for the law firm where she works as a paralegal. She dropped her 3-year-old daughter off at her next-door neighbor's house in the 6900 block of Texarkana, then came home to get her gym bag and purse.

    Her brother watched as she left the house to drive to the office. But a short time later, Jimenez-Rodriguez apparently texted a co-worker saying she'd be late.

    That didn't raise any red flags at first, according to the missing woman's sister, Gloria Jimenez.

    A little bit later, the coworker received a text saying that Jimenez-Rodriguez was headed back to her neighbor's to pick up her daughter, who wasn't feeling well.

    But that text may not have really come from Jimenez-Rodriguez, her sister said. The babysitter said she never texted with the missing mom and never talked to her.

    A few hours later, the co-worker received another text, this time saying she was heading back into the office. She never showed up, but hours later, the co-worker got one more text.

    "The message said that two Hispanic males were following her in a vehicle," Jimenez said. "And that was the last text."

    Early the next morning, the missing mom's car turned up about six or seven blocks from her house.

    Jimenez said she had no idea who might want to harm her sister, and stressed that the woman's daughter has medical issues and needs her mother.

    At about 8 a.m., Texas EquuSearch and volunteers gathered in northeast Houston near Wayside Drive and Wallisville Road to begin looking for Maria Jimenez-Rodriguez.

    The Houston Police Department said she was last seen in the 6900 block of Texarkana St. in Houston.

    Jimenez-Rodriguez was last seen wearing a dressy t-shirt, possibly green, and pastel colored slacks. She also had on brown slipper shoes, a pink Apple watch and was carrying a tan purse.

    HPD says has very distinctive moles on her face. Her largest is by her right eye.

    Police say the case of a Houston mother missing since June is now a homicide investigation.

    Maria Jimenez-Rodriguez is described by family and friends as outgoing, intelligent, responsible and devoted to her 4-year-old daughter Destiny.

    The single mother was a paralegal working at the Milledge Law Firm for the last six years.

    "She would always show up to work about 15-20 minutes early to make sure everything was set," said Samuel L. Milledge.

    On June 21, 2018, she never arrived.

    Her family says she left her house on time that morning, dropped her daughter off with the babysitter and went to work in her silver truck.

    But 30 minutes after she was supposed to be at work, she began sending strange text messages to her boss and co-worker, first telling them she would be late. Then more than an hour later, she sent a message saying she was turning around to go pick up her toddler from the babysitter.

    "It was kind of weird messages, didn't seem like her at all," said Brenda Lopez, her co-worker.

    Maria never arrived when she said she went back to the babysitter's house, and later that evening, Lopez received a text from Maria's phone saying: "Sorry I'm ok and Des is fine but this red truck with two white boys or Hispanics seem like they been following me call you from a safe place."

    Friends and family do not believe that was Maria texting at all.

    "She is very intelligent. She would have not had time to text all that. She would have just dialed 911 or On-Star on her vehicle," said Jimenez.

    Her silver truck was found the next day, parked a few streets away from her east Houston home.

    "Parked, locked as if nothing had happened. Someone just parked the vehicle there and walked away," said her sister.

    Texas EquuSearch volunteers were called in, but found nothing during a mid-summer search.

    After months of investigation, Houston police say this is now a homicide case.

    They tell us they have a person of interest, but will not say more.

    If you know anything about the disappearance of Maria Jimenez-Rodriguez, please call Houston police at 713-308-3600.

    One year later, and a Houston mother is still missing.

    Maria Jimenez-Rodriguez was last seen on June 21, 2018 when she dropped her daughter off with the babysitter and went to work in her silver truck.

    The single mother was a paralegal working at the Milledge Law Firm, but on June 21 she never arrived to work. Her co-workers said it was unusual and out of character.

    Investigators say her co-workers also said that they started receiving strange text messages from Jimenez-Rodriguez saying that she would be late.

    Her co-workers questioned the legitimacy of the text messages because they didn't sound like they were coming from Jimenez-Rodriguez.

    Later that evening, police discovered Jimenez-Rodriguez's vehicle parked a few streets away from her east Houston home.

    After a month of investigating, Houston police turned the case into an homicide investigation.
