    Most likely became intoxicated the night of new years eve and was abducted. She was last seen out around a large area of apartments so it is possible one of the residents of these apartments at the time might have something to do with it

    I was wondering if there was any explanation for tut he tattoo of the words “Soriano” bring tattooed on her neck. Aside understand it certain tattoos in prison indicates that the person belongs to a particular gang.

    It could be a name of a family member, or maybe someone she was dating. It might be something to explore, as it might have made her a target. As being a gang member found hanging around on another gang’s turf.

    MIKED-its my understanding she was alone when last seen leaving place “a” to place “b” and I don’t think she was actually reported missing until day or days later.

  7. MikeD says:

    For this case I’ve always wondered where she was going. She was last seen at 11pm on New Year’s Eve, but was also reported missing on that same day apparently. Was she reported missing before or after that last sighting? Where she was last seen is mostly apartments. If she was out and about at 11pm on New Year’s Eve she was probably going to some party or to meet up with some people. Was she alone when she was last seen?

    I cant belive it’s bee so long and still no one knows anything about her. Anyone that knows anything please let the police know.

    wrong Jeannie Hernandez. The Jeannie who was Adrian’s Godmother was not this young. She is my mother and her middle name is not the same. This girl was born in 1985 and the Jeannie you mention was born in 1947.

    Her godson Luis Adrian Acosta passed away in 2008 and the bottom obit on this page mentions that she survives him.
