    Carla Vicentini was last seen leaving a bar and grill in Newark, New Jersey, during the early morning hours of February 10, 2006. At that time, she was thought to have been intoxicated and was seen with an unidentified white male. She told a friend that she was going outside the bar to the man's car to view a photograph. She has not been seen since she left the restaurant.

    Carla was a Brazilian exchanged student living in Newark. It is believed Carla returned to her residence, as her wallet, passport, and jacket were found there. A few days after she disappeared, someone called her bosses cell phone and screamed for help, but it's not known if it was Carla.

    Search continues for Brazilian student who vanished after leaving Newark bar 4 years ago
    February 2010

    Joan Petruski’s life mission is to find missing people, but the case of Carla Vicentini, a Brazilian student who vanished after leaving a Newark bar four years ago, is personal to her.

    [snip]

    Vicentini, and friends of the family, hope the billboard reminds law enforcement officials that Carla is still missing and refreshes the public’s memories about her and what they saw the night of Feb. 9, 2006 in a bar in Newark’s Ironbound.

    Brazilian National last seen at 2:00a leaving a bar on Ferry Street with a heavy set, sullen man with blue eyes and salt and pepper hair. Portuguese speaker, very little English. Vincentini's boss received a call from an unknown number days after her disappearance, where whoever was on the other end was screaming "HELP!"

    If anyone speaks Portuguese the following link is to what seems to be a hearing of a Brazilian Senate Committee which focuses on this case. It hears from Carla's mother and (if I understand correctly using Google Translate!) some very specific allegations are made about named individuals. This seems to be information not available in any other sources and may provide new avenues of interest.

    Can anyone offer their language expertise to provide a translation or summary?

    Just a bump on this post. The file (which it doesn't appear anyone translated) is missing or moved from that link. Anyone with any current info?

    Agreed, however it still is an open case and should be kept in the light. The FBI have even offered a $20,000 reward in her case, so they have not given up. I would assume no surveillance footage was available, though it is a shame since even 10 years ago it was quite common to use for most businesses. I am still hoping this one gets solved.

    I posted on the LISK thread; Carla bears some physical and demographic similarities to some of the LISK murder victims, in particular Megan Waterman. Carla was 22, 5' 7" and approximately 140lbs; Megan Waterman was 22 at the time of her disappearance, 5' 5" and approximately 140lbs. If you compare pictures side by side, there are even similarities in their smile and cheeks. Carla disappeared from Newark in 2006, one year prior to the first known LISK victim's disappearance, Maureen Brainard-Barnes. Hopefully Carla will be found but there seems to be many coincidences regarding her disappearance and the LISK murder victims.

    Her case pains me greatly. Her family being in Brazil must make them feel so helpless. Literally anything could've happened to her. Ugh.

    I posted at #5 above, linking to a Brazilian Senate hearing into the case. Unfortunately that link is no longer active and I cannot find a replacement. However, I did find a senate news report which (if you use Google translate, which seems to have improved since 2015) gives some of the information from the hearings. Specifically it identifies Carla's mothers suspicions about the role of the person Carla was staying with and her roommate. Whether she has any real grounds for this suspicion is unclear (the full hearing transcript may make that more clear if it can be found). What this report does suggest is a line of enquiry different to the 'last man she was seen with' line seen to date. There has been comment in other reports about doubts regarding the account of the roommate, since Carla's jacket and wallet were found in her room and she was seen by others returning from the bar - but it is interesting that the mother was prepared to make her views known so publicly at an official hearing.The report is at https://www12.senado.leg.br/noticia...esclarecer-desaparecimento-de-carla-vicentini .

    I wonder if she could have been a victim of human trafficking. I would think she would be a good target for a pimp to abduct: pretty young woman, in a strange country with no contacts or family to speak of, poor native language skills, low-income in her host country.

    Yes, I agree with you. That was the first thing that came to mind when I read her updated charley project page. I had no idea the circumstances behind her disappearance until now. I really think she was abducted
