    I don’t like that her phone pinged in a remote part of the west Mesa. I think of the murders there 12 years ago.

    Is the West Mesa Bone Collector Serial Killer Still Roaming Free?

    I doubt her being missing is related, but is that area considered a dumping ground? I have family in Albuquerque but I don’t know much about West Mesa specifically. Ugh. I feel like she must have willingly gone out the window b/c she took her phone, but then what happened? I don’t like the west Mesa business. :(

    Cute girl!!! I hadn't heard anything about it. Don't count on much help from the Rio Rancho PD. I'll leave it at that.

    Hoping she just has a bf that she can't bring home and is out on an adventure! Remember Alexandra Greenwall? She was only 10 and went on an adventure on the West Mesa for 3 days. I had work to do on her street and when I stopped to offer the FBI Agent a generic key/addresses to all of abandoned houses in the area, he told me that she was just pissed off and they expected her to walk back up any minute (after she ran out of the food and water she took with her). Kids here also have such bad Covid-fatique. Most didn't return to the classroom a few weeks ago - they continued with on-line classes as that's what they're being offered in the classroom anyway. They just want summer/fun to be here already. Maybe she needed some fun for a change? It's been in short supply.

    Come home safe, Jovanna! Your family misses you!!!

    Very cute girl! I hope you’re right and she’s on an adventure. I think it started out that way at least. I’m worried that it’s been over a week now with no contact, but we don’t really know much about her. It just sounds like her family wouldn’t expect this from her. I wonder if her phone turned off after the west mesa ping?

    Yeah, I doubt it's related too. The West Mesa stretches for a long way - from the Northwestern part of Rio Rancho to the South Valley (I'd guess 25+ miles). The girls were found on the far Southern part of the West Mesa when new development started. They were all endangered girls and it doesn't sound like Jovanna is a high-risk victim. If she went to Cleveland HS (as was reported), she would have probably been near the Northern edge.

    Those killings and the dumping of their bodies stopped a long time ago. Most people here think the monster is dead.

    Her mom said she was able to ping her phone—does this mean she had some sort of tracking app like Life 360? Or does she mean LE was able to actually ping her phone to a cell tower? It sounds to me more like mom tracked her phone. So I wonder if she is able to see where the phone was before the Thursday “ping?”

    Oh no, I hope she is quickly located safe.

    Rooting for Jovanna to call her family or call 911.

    Here's a map.
    I did a 10 mile radius of where her phone pinged (like her mom said).
    That's a vast area and includes the subdivision that she lives in and the entire urban area of Rio Rancho. The phone ping is not too far from her high school but there's really nothing around the high school except for a small new subdivision being built immediately to the West.
    Cleveland High School 4800 Cleveland Heights Rd NE, Rio Rancho, NM 87144

    She could be anywhere and safe (HOPING!!!!)

    I can't believe there is NO news on this! She's 16. Where's the outrage?

    Thanks. I'm surprised there are not additional updates. Often we see social media activity, rewards, videos, statements from LE.....it's been pretty quiet which sometimes leads me to believe that the family has some information. I do wonder why her mom noticed her missing at 4am - what prompted her to check her daughter's bedroom in the middle of the night?

    Albuquerque West Mesa is south of Rio Rancho West Mesa. I don't know the exact mileage difference but its the next town adjacent to Albuquerque. She is from Rio Rancho and there is also a lot of undeveloped land in Rio Rancho West.
