    If we use this location:
    McHard Rd appears to be a section of FM2234.
    This would match with other reports of her last being seen around FM2234 & Fort Bend Tollway and within a few miles from Court Rd that’s been reported.

    IMO there is another person involved in this story that LE is purposely leaving out.

    she was last seen driving her car by someone she knows

    THAT person is involved. Moo

    FBI joins search for Houston mom missing more than a week

    April 27
    Lt. Manny Cruz, the Houston Police Department's commander of the missing person's unit, said Monday that search crews have thoroughly searched the area where Hernandez was last seen and need to expand their search.

    "She was mobile," he said. "She could have really driven anywhere."

    "Someone has seen something," Lee said. "Someone knows something. Someone is not saying something."

    Let's Find Erica Hernandez

    Let’s Find Erica page shared an update earlier stating:
    Plans have changed..the search at S Post Oak Rd has been cancelled to the public!

    Wonder the reasoning for this?

    Do we know Erica’s address or neighborhood she lives in? I can’t remember if it has been shared.
    I ask because I’m curious if her last seen location is even in the same direction as her home?

    Wasn't the S. Post Oak Road address the location of a relative where she was dropping of food?
    I don't think its ever been stated where Erica lives herself.....

    Above is the area of FM2234 & Fort Bend Tollway.
    If you continue south on Fort Bend Tollway, there’s what appears to be two bodies of water (close to the intersection).

    That is one of the areas shared in media that she was last visibly seen at.

    BBM I can think of a couple of reasons. One is if they are using dogs. Another is if they are using drones equipped with FLIR capability. Too many people in the area can interfere in both of those situations. MOO

    Search efforts continue for Erica Hernandez, missing Houston mother of 3 - TOPNews-USA

    Family members describe Erica Hernandez as a loving mother. She’s a single mother who works full-time to care for her three children. She even donates plasma twice a week, trying to bring in more money for her household.

    Her son, Dennis, turns 16 years old Wednesday. Erica’s sister, Ashley Hernandez, said there’s no way in this world Erica would miss his birthday.

    “It’s about bringing my sister home to her children. My nephew’s birthday is coming up. It’s going to be a hard 16, I’ll tell you that. Please find it in your heart to look at your camera, think about what happened Sunday last week,” said Hernandez. “I really do think she’s in danger. There’s no reason why we can’t find her vehicle. I do think she’s in danger. I really do.”

    Yet she drives a massive GMC Acadia less than a year old, which has been discussed here as being quite appealing for a carjacking.

    I'm not judging her financial situation or lifestyle choices at all, but the description of her being a single mother, working full time, then delivering food, plus donating blood twice a week for extra money sits at odds with having a new vehicle that would have cost her a lot of money.

    I hope poor Erica hasn't been roped into delivering other items (drugs, money, guns etc.) for nefarious people to get some more money for her family and it's gone wrong.

    MOO

    Definitely. It seems like there’s a great big piece of the jigsaw they’re deliberately not mentioning for some reason.

    There appears to be several bodies of water in the area. With the cell phone & OnStar both not being able to be pinged, I'm leaning towards the theory that the vehicle just may be in water. We had a case here in Indiana where a woman missing since 2009 was found last year in a retention pond in her vehicle. I hope such is not the case here for Erica & she is returned safely to her family - and soon.

    I have to agree that there’s info that LE or family has not released. JMO

    Do we even know if the location she was “last seen” around where she lives?
    Have they determined who’s phone number it was that she dialed on her way home?

    So there are ways to disable OnStar.
    How to Disable OnStar | YourMechanic Advice

    The car could be in water, or it could be disabled.
    "Certain 2015 model year Cadillac Escalade, Cadillac Escalade ESV, Chevrolet Silverado Crew Cab, Chevrolet Suburban, Chevrolet Tahoe, GMC Sierra Crew Cab, GMC Yukon, and GMC Yukon XL vehicles may have a condition that can allow water to leak into the vehicle’s roofmounted antenna. This condition could prevent the vehicle’s OnStar system from accurately determining the vehicle’s location; disable the vehicle’s compass, navigation, and XM radio systems; illuminate the vehicle’s red OnStar LED indicator; and allow water into the interior passenger compartment."
    SB-10089829-2280.pdf (nhtsa.gov)

    I know it's not this vehicle she has, just to show that being submerged in water can disable it.
    Sorry, just thinking out loud.
