    "She was going out to the Firefly restaurant go out with friends and celebrate New Year's and she was going to come back home." But Jarl Kongsrude says his niece, 20-year-old Mariela Morena, who has lived with him and his wife since she was 14, never came home.

    and

    Henderson Police say the last person to see Moreno was her boyfriend who dropped her off at her home near Eastern and Warm Springs in the early morning hours of New Year's Day. "He said that he dropped her off at the house around 4 am in the morning and she waved him off and that's the last time we've seen her," Kongsrude told News 3.

    Hi Hoppyfrog,
    when you listen to the follow up video you find out a bit more information, that at the time Mariela went missing she had a outstanding domestic violence case against a ex-boyfriend.

    Police Continue Search For Missing Henderson Woman

    Updated: Jan 24, 2008 11:54 PM

    Two Nevada women are missing in two separate cases. In Reno, the FBI is involved in the search for 19-year-old Brianna Denison. She's been missing since Sunday night.

    Down in Henderson, three weeks after she vanished, police still aren't calling the disappearance of Mariela Moreno anything more than a missing persons case.

    The last time Mariela Moreno was seen in public was on New Year's Eve. She was celebrating with her friends at the Firefly restaurant.

    She disappeared just four hours into the New Year. It's a baffling mystery with lots of questions and few answers.

    Moreno, by all accounts, loves her family and has fun -- as you can see from recent home videos.

    I am surprised that Mariela's case hasn't had any national media coverage.

    There doesn't seem to be much interest in her case for some reason.

    Family Desperate to Find Missing Henderson Woman

    Updated:Feb 6, 2008 08:33 PM MST

    Mariela's boyfriend, Isidro Munoz, who goes by the first name Diego, was the last known person to see Mariela.

    A Henderson woman, desperate to find her sister who has been missing since New Year's Day, is making an emotional plea tonight for help solving this mystery.

    Henderson police are now saying for the first time on record that the circumstances surrounding the disappearance of 20-year-old Mariela Moreno are suspicious, and that foul play may be involved.

    That's something her own family has suspected all along, but police say until more evidence surfaces, this mystery will remain a missing person's case and not a homicide investigation.

    "We are worried because we know something happened to her," said Mariela's sister Monica Moreno.

    It's been 37 days since 20-year-old Moreno just vanished without a trace. Mariela's boyfriend, Isidro Munoz, who goes by the first name Diego, was the last known person to see Mariela.

    This is the first that I have heard of this case too. I wonder if someone was waiting for her when she was dropped off at her home that morning. I wonder who and where the ex-boyfriend was at the time.

    I think the boyfriend is guilty and never even took her to her house. Her family said her dog would have barked upon her arrival and according to the boyfriend he didn't wait until she made it to the door. Canines are smart like that and mine always barks when i come home.

    "He told detectives he dropped Mariela off after a New Year's Eve party at the Henderson home she shares with her older sister -- but pulled away in his car before she ever made it into the house.
    Mariela's family doesn't think she came home that night and say her dog would have barked upon Mariela's arrival home."

    Sounds a bit suspicious. When I was younger, my friends and boyfriends would always wait for me to enter the house before leaving. I'd turn on a light and wave them off. Even if they knew my parents were in the house sleeping. Plus, Josie would bark at me if I came home at 4 a.m. She's asleep and has no idea who's entering the house.

    So many people missing! This is the first I've heard of this one. Such a pretty girl. I wish the media would do more for the missing besides updating us on how Brittney is doing.

    Snippets from the links:

    According to previous reports Mariela had a ongoing domestic violence case against a ex-boyfriend. In this new report they say that Mariela's friends think the new boyfriend she was with that night may have left Henderson and gone to Mexico

    "Henderson police are now saying for the first time on record that the circumstances surrounding the disappearance of 20-year-old Mariela Moreno are suspicious, and that foul play may be involved...."

    "Mariela's family doesn't think she came home that night and say her dog would have barked upon Mariela's arrival home.

    Moreno also described Mariela's new boyfriend as obsessed with her sister, and that the two had argued the night Mariela disappeared -- according to her sister's friends....."

    From the first LasVegasNow link above:

    Snipped -

    "It is really weird, the fact that he would call himself Diego. I knew him as Diego and not Isidro. So that actually makes me wonder a lot," said Mariela's friend Claudia Escobedo.

    I have been looking for another pic of "Diego" but can't find anything yet.
    There is one other place to check, there is a spanish YouTube video campaign for Mariela, but I can't access youtube at work. Hopefully someone here speaks Spanish (I can speak, read and write only basic spanish) and would check that out for us.

    Have you ever wondered why a name from a police site is never on Google? They should correct this! I have looked for Isidro Munoz on PD sites for an hour. Ugh!

    On February 29, a body was found by Sunset Park in Las Vegas--one report said it is of a small person, possibly killed somewhere else and dumped there--has any one heard anymore about this? My niece Melanie Sutton went missing a year ago from Henderson, Nv--and we are on pins and needles--waiting to find out.

    how far from henderson nv to las vegas? where bri went missing and later found, kinda makes me jump off the path here and wonder about this man involved with Mariela do any of you think his pic is similar to the composite pic? or am I off the page here? this creep that killed brianna seems to me to have a low respect for woman.
