    I've been working hard to get the cold case detectives to keep up with my aunts case. When she went missing my grandmother called the sheriffs office for several weeks trying to file a missing persons report, and she was dismissed each time by the Rio Arriba County Sheriff. He would tell her "she's just a teenager, she'll be back." I got her listed with NCMEC, after years and years of being ignored. I have copies of several police reports with "statements" of people who say they were present when she was murdered, yet nothing was ever done with the information, (it also took me several years to get this information, they said in 2006 they had a suspect and didn't want me tipping him off.) At this point I feel like I've hit a brick wall and don't know what else to do.

    I wonder what exactly is meant by "older man"? Esther was 17 - at that age, a 20-year-old is an "older man." Or, it could actually be someone in their thirties, forties or older, in which case, it begs the question as to why he would want to go camping with a teenager. Did Esther perhaps have an older boyfriend?

    Charley Project says that Esther was scheduled to be a witness in an upcoming trial. Sadly, I think this is most likely the cause of her disappearance. I'd like to think that she just ran off of her own volition, but I've read too many stories about people set to testify who mysteriously never made it to the stand.
