    Angelica was allegedly last seen in a pickup with a white male and white female. The pickup's hood, front fender and bed were red and white in color; the doors were blue and white; and the top was white. The pickup was dented, dirty and "junky" looking.

    that describes EXACTLY how circus/carnival trucks were painted.....couple streets over from me is a mid/late 70s ford pickup.... thats where it came from...this one is in decent shape

    mid 80s it could have been a truck that was sold by by business to a carnie or just someone needing a beater

    Finding Angelica 31 years later

    http://www.kcentv.com/story/32060604...31-years-later

    Below is a message from Laura Gandara Mendosa, Angelica’s sister to the community of central Texas:

    “Only those who have experienced the abduction of a child could ever really understand the heartache and pain of losing someone in such a way than only leads to questions. Not knowing, what happened was really difficult. The sadness doesn’t ever go away and it doesn’t cure in time. This year on July 14th, 2016 it will be 31 years that my sister has been missing. We still don’t know anymore now than the first day Angelica was abducted. Even after all this time, I am thankful that she is not forgotten by the community. Thank you for all your thoughts and prayers and comments. We know that the Temple Police Department did all they could at that time. We are very appreciative for the hard work the detectives did. Ruben Rubac, Ron Flippo, Lila Price, just to name a few (may they all rest in peace). I am also thankful for all the agencies, programs, resources that are now available to help find missing children. It is very sad that even with all the education and training, there are still hundreds of children that come up missing every day. It is only through my faith that I have found peace. One of my favorite verses is John 16:33 “I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.”
