    I found this old Las Vegas newspaper article from 1997 describing the reunion of two of Teresa's younger siblings. Evidently she was the oldest of 6. From what I could get from the article, the siblings were split up around the time Teresa went missing. Some went into foster care, others to family. But since Teresa was older than 18, she wasn't under the jurisdiction of the state. I guess she might have run off, tired of what the article indicates was a dysfunctional family and somehow ended up in trouble after that. It seems like she just disappeared and fell of the face of the Earth.
