    TX - Blanca 'Elisa' Roberson, 13, Aransas Pass, 6 Aug 1989

    Blanca Elisa Roberson




    Vital Statistics at Time of Disappearance
    Missing Since: August 6, 1989 from Aransas Pass, Texas

    Classification: Non-Family Abduction

    Date Of Birth: January 12, 1976

    Age: 13 years old

    Height and Weight: 5'0, 120 pounds

    Distinguishing Characteristics: Black hair, brown eyes. Roberson has a scar on her right knee and a three-inch circular scar on her thigh. She was immature for her age and has a shy, retiring temperament at the time of her disappearance. She is a native of Nicaragua. Roberson goes by her middle name, Elisa. Her ears are pierced. She may be called "Elisa Roberson" by some agencies.

    Clothing/Jewelry Description: A light blue Mickey Mouse t-shirt, dark blue culotte-style shorts, and tennis shoes.




    Details of Disappearance
    Roberson was last seen walking to a friend's residence in Aransas Pass, Texas on August 6, 1989 between 4:30 and 5:00 p.m. She never arrived at her destination, which was a block and a half from her home, and has not been heard from again. Roberson's mother notified police when she had not arrived home by 11:00 p.m. and an extensive search was launched but turned up no sign of her. Foul play is suspected in her case. An anonymous tipster sent a map to a Texas news station in June 2001. The letter purportedly contained the location of Roberson's body. Authorities searched the area near Aransas Pass, but no evidence related to her case was discovered. Human remains were found in Aransas County in March 2005 and authorities are investigating the possibility that they may be in Roberson's. Roberson's disappearance remains unsolved.

    Cold Case: Disappearance of Elisa Roberson

    When you think of cold cases in the Coastal Bend it's hard to forget the face of 13-year-old Elisa Roberson. She vanished from Aransas Pass 17 years ago without a trace. 6 News took another look at the chilly trail. It's a case that still haunts Elisa's best friend to this day. For the first time she speaks about her tragic loss.

    Roberson's youthful face still lights up the Aransas Pass Police Department, and her sixth grade picture is frozen in time on numerous national web sites. Sharla Yell remembers their fun times together.

    "She'd come over and hang out all the time every day. Ride bikes, sit in my house and play Nintendo or Atari...the old games (laughs)," said Yell. She remembers that on August 6, 1989. Elisa was not herself.

    Reward Offered

    A national foundation is now offering a reward to help find someone who's been missing for the past 18 years in hopes of getting some clues to her whereabouts.

    Elisa Roberson was 13 when she disappeared. During all this time all efforts to find her have been unsuccessful, the hope is, this new reward money could motivate someone to come forward with new information on the case.

    Eighteen years ago today {article dated August 6, 2007}, Blanca Elisa Roberson was reported missing by her family. Since then, no reward has ever been offered to find her, but now a national foundation is doing that in hopes of finding her or her remains.

    I remember linking the details of this case to Princess Blue's. Although evidence shows PB may not be hispanic, have we ruled out Blanca as a match?

    I remember doing a careful search of Aransas Pass, and I don't think that's far from Brazoria county.

    Hi MrsG! Good to see you. I don't think she has been completely ruled out but Blanca was only 13 when she went missing and I do think that her age range is off from what Princess Blue would be.
    --
    Also, it would be great to find out Blanca's dentals as we now have Princess Blue's ME's report and it would be fairly easy to rule out Blanca if we could find out more about her teeth.

    Princess Blue

    I never heard of Princess Blue but I just looked her up- this was not Elisa. She is thought to be part African American and white either one parent or grandparent of the victim. ELisa was niether part African or caucasion her last name Roberson was my dad's name, he adopted her when she was a baby. The victim had six rings none of which belonged to Elisa.

    rpm, When we first started trying to find out Princess Blue's identity Princess Blue was thought to be white/hispanic. That was when there was a possibility of Princess Blue being Elisa. It was only recently that it came out that Princess Blue was white & had the probability of having some african amercian traits and it was likely that one of her parents & we just wanted to make sure that Elisha had been completely ruled out as being Princess Blue. Thank you so much for posting here and it is good to know also that Elisa didn't have any of the rings that were found with Princess Blue. That is wonderful to know.

    Rpm, I also remember researching as much as I could about your dear sister, Elisa. I hope and pray that she is one day found. Is there anything we can do to help you?

    I have a note here that states that Sgt. Jay Coffman ruled out Blanca Roberson as a possible match to "Princess Blue". I don't however have the reason why he ruled her out. She would probably be too young to be Princess Blue as Blanca was only 13 at the time of her disappearance and Princess Blue has been estimated to be between 15 - 25 years old. I also have information from Blanca's sister stating that Blanca didn't have any rings like the ones Princess Blue was found with.

    Memorial To Be Held To Honor Missing Teen

    http://www.kristv.com/Global/story.a...=menu192_2_6_4

    4 Aug 09

    The sister of a missing Aransas Pass girl is in town for a memorial that marks the 20th anniversary of her sister's disappearance.

    Elisa Roberson, 13, vanished without a trace on August 6, 1989 while she was on her way to meet a friend at Kieberger Elementary.

    Little information on her whereabouts has come into the Aransas Pass Police Department and the Center for Missing and Exploited Children. In May of this year, investigators said they were on the trail of a person of interest.

    While investigators hammer out those leads, Elisa's family hopes to find some closure this week.

    Her sister is in town for a memorial marking the 20th anniversary of Elisa's disappearance. She said it's time to give her sister the memorial she deserves.

    Ruby Messerli hasn't been back to her hometown in 17 years and her first day back was overwhelming, to say the least.
