    An unidentified Hispanic female was found deceased on July 31, 1991 in Elmhurst, New York. She was found in an abandoned building at 85-11 Elmhurst Ave. The building was used for illicit activity and frequented by transients. The female had been deceased for only a few hours before being found. She stood approximately 5’3” tall and weighed around 111 pounds. She had wavy black hair and brown eyes. She is estimated to be 16-25 years old. She was found wearing green shorts, a green blouse, and a black jacket with the name “MIKE” in red letters. The female had received dental care in life as a few dental fillings were seen in her teeth. The image above is a facial reconstruction completed by a NCMEC Forensic Artist that depicts what the female may have looked like in life.

    The stats match up fairly well, the timeline is much less consistent. However, Blanca's mother apparently dated a man involved with drug trade, and the building the UID was found was used for that sort of activity. Just a thought.

    I don't think so, which is surprising, considering the she died hours before she was found.

    Unknown hispanic female found unresponsive on the 2nd floor of an abandoned building at 85-11 Elmhurst Ave. Two men employed by the landlord entered the building to fumigate and discovered her. The building had been abandoned, and was used by drug users and homeless individuals. The landlord recognized the decedent as having been to the building on several occasions.



    I am surprised nobody knew her if the landlord had seen the girl in the building Several times. If the building is abandoned the Landord I am assuming was not living there. I am wondering since he saw her several times if she had belonging there that were hers and if people around Knew who she was.

    I came across this article which I found interesting and I have not seen these people reported missing elsewhere nor have a I seen any follow up articles that they were found.

    http://www.nytimes.com/1991/08/06/n...sing-after-attending-a-long-island-party.html

    The tall and slender Meguel Romero, 28 years old, and his petite wife, Lura Espada, 26, have not been seen since they drove off from the party late on July 14. They never arrived home.

    "We are totally dumbfounded," said Ken Kelly, director of security at P. C. Richard & Son, where both Mr. Romero and Ms. Espada were employed, she as a supervisor and he a store manager, for the last three years. No Trace of Car
    The Missing Persons Squad of the New York City Police Department has asked for help in finding the couple, but detectives said they were puzzled by the lack of any trace of the couple's car.

    "We are assuming they just took off someplace," said Sgt. Robert Divago of the 102d Detective Squad in Queens, who conceded that it was a mystery where they might have gone, or why there was no record of credit-card use.
    Ms. Espada's mother, Alice Espada of Ozone Park, Queens, maintained that it would be completely out of character for her daughter to leave without notifying the family

    the article states there was a photo but I did not see it nor have I been able to find it anywhere

    I wonder if shed been arrested before, if she was caught trespassing at that building multiple times she likely trespassed elsewhere. They also indicated the building was used for illicit activity, so she may have a mugshot out there somewhere.

    I can't find any follow up either. If they're still Missing it's worth submitting her name.

    I think the landlord (or more likely, the super) had probably seen her around the building, but she was not a legal tenant - the building was abandoned and used as a crack house - people come and go, and you might know their faces but not their real names, or any name at all.

    Just throwing my 2 cents in here, I see her aka was Katita, idk if other Hispanic cultures use this word but Puerto Ricans use that as a nickname for a talkative woman, catita is like a parrot/parakeet. Chileans say catita means ladybug to them though.

    I'm not getting permission errors for any of the aforementioned cases (Sydney Montanez, Blanca Roberson, Krista De La Rosa or Maria Medina), but the Doe Network hasn't elaborated on her identity at present.
