    Gloria King

    In a second unsolved case, police are also asking for information about a Gallup native whose whereabouts have been unknown since 1996.

    Toadlena-Pablo said 42-year-old Gloria King's ex-husband John King reported his wife missing after the pair allegedly lost one another as they were traveling in separate vehicles from Albuquerque to Gallup.

    Gloria King's vehicle was later found abandoned at the El Rancho Hotel and she has not been seen since Aug. 9, 1996. Gloria King is Native American, about 5 feet 3 inches tall and weighed about 115 pounds. She also has a scar behind her left ear lobe. Toadlena-Pablo said King left behind several children.

    Anyone with information about the case, is asked to call CrimeStoppers at 722-6161 or Detective Reyes at 863-9365.

    There are some resemblences to this unidentified woman, but not enough (for me) to be sure.

    The unidentified woman was found about 5 hours away from Gloria's home.

    Problem is the time of death is estimated to be 9 months to a year after Gloria went missing - casts further doubt on it being her.

    snipped from case report:
    Circumstances King (Navajo decent) was last seen in Albuquerque, New Mexico in 1996. She and her former husband planned to travel to Farmington, New Mexico in separate vehicles on September 9, 1996. King's former husband told authorities that they purchased fast food items at a restaurant near Grants, New Mexico and stopped in Milan, New Mexico to eat the meals shortly afterwards. They lost track of one another, King was never seen again.
    King's vehicle was later found abandoned at the El Rancho Hotel there was no sign of her at the scene and she never returned home.
    No archived articles found at this time.

    Gloria has been missing almost 14 years. Come home soon.

    I wonder if there were any surveillance cameras around the area where her vehicle was found? El Rancho is an old historic hotel. Or even at the traffic stop lights. Perhaps see who might have followed her into the parking lot. That's if she drove her vehicle from Grants to Gallup. That is about an hour away. Somewhere within that hour she either made an unscheduled stop, to use the restroom or whatever, she might've been carjacked and perhaps was abducted or killed at that location. The abductor abandoned the vehicle or they took her from the parking lot in Gallup and took another vehicle from there onto the freeway, I40 is only a few seconds away from there. I hope she is still alive and is returned to her family.

    was there any activity on her account(s)? did they find her purse in her vehicle? any sign of a struggle? what time of day was she traveling with the former husband? was it the two of them alone or did they have passengers?
