    CA - Rodney Texera, 41, Berkeley, 1 Dec 2005

    BERKELEY -- When Rodney Texera didn't show up for Christmas in 2005, his mother really started worrying.

    The 41-year-old Berkeley resident, who is deaf, disappeared a couple of weeks before the holidays after going to Oroville.

    He is just one of 50,930 missing adults on file with the FBI, but to his mom, he's the one and only.

    "We thought he would show up at Christmas Eve, and then on Christmas Day; he didn't show up and that's when I knew something was wrong," his mother, Pamela Creech, said Friday.

    The last communication she had from him was an e-mail.

    On Friday, Creech choked back tears at a news conference in Berkeley and pleaded for anyone with information on Texera to call police. During the news conference, a $5,000 reward was announced by the Carole Sund/Carrington Memorial Reward Foundation for information that leads to finding him.

    The case, investigated by Berkeley police in Oroville, is now cold, said Berkeley police Sgt. Mary Kusmiss.

    Kusmiss said Texera, who lived in a one-bedroom public housing unit on University Avenue, had gone to Oroville with another deaf friend to help with a move. The two got into an argument, she said, and Texera picked up his backpack and walked toward a grove of trees. No one has seen or heard from him since.

    Police to this day have not conducted a search of the area for his body because they don't suspect foul play, Kusmiss said.
