    Classification: Endangered Missing
    Date Of Birth: September 22, 1987
    Age: 14 years old
    Height and Weight: 5'1, 115 pounds
    Distinguishing Characteristics: Hispanic female. Black hair, black eyes. Gonzalez wears eyeglasses or contact lenses. She has the names "Gaby" and "Juan" tattooed on her back. Her nickname is Gaby and she may use the last name Fernandez.

    Details of Disappearance

    Gonzalez was last seen when her mother dropped her off at school on April 5, 2002. She did not attend her classes that day; she had not, in fact, gone to any since two days before her disappearance. She apparently went to visit her nineteen-year-old boyfriend, Juan Jose Vera, in Chula Vista, California instead. She has never been heard from again.

    Authorities initially believed Gonzalez had run away and many agencies continue to classify her as such, but now police suspect foul play may have been involved in her disappearance. In June 2005, police searched the Otay River Bottom in Palm City, California, because they thought her body might be buried there. Nothing was found, however. Vera has gang affiliations and was allegedly abusive towards Gonzalez, and he is considered a person of interest in her disappearance. He has been incarcerated on several unrelated charges since February 2003.

    Gonzalez left a note behind when she disappeared which indicated she left of her own accord. She was a freshman at Montgomery High School in 2002, and was not a good student. Her case remains unsolved.

    EXCLUSIVE: Search successful, moves South Bay cold case forward

    November 14, 2016 by Jenny Day
    CHULA VISTA – New leads have been pouring into the Chula Vista Police Department since we told you last week about new elements in a missing person’s case from 2002.

    Investigators now feel they’re closer than ever to solving a 14-year-old murder mystery.

    The Chula Vista Police Department says there have been major developments in this case and when all is said and done, it could make headlines around the world.

    Snipped

    Me: I don't know where this belongs, I searched and couldn't find a thread for her. Maybe someone can do it for me. Thankful they have some leads finally.

    I thought I saw an article with a more complete quote of the note Gaby left but now I can't find it. Can anyone help?

    Edit 1: I found this at https://archive.is/TYa6j but still think there's a more complete quote of the note out there somewhere:

    I only do self promotion when it's relevant to a thread (aside from my signature) but here's a link to my latest podcast episode, Gaby is the cold case in the final segment. It was cold when I started research and while it isn't so cold anymore I decided to cover it anyway.
