Melissa Morales, 27, has been missing from her Dogwood Drive home since early morning on Dec. 11. She left her home unannounced and drove off in a 2002 black Honda CR-V that belonged to her mother.
We’re concerned because she’s not mentally stable,” Rosenberg Police Lt. Margaret Hedden, head of the department’s Criminal Investigation Division, said Monday.
The car Morales left in had only enough gas to go about 100 miles, Hedden said. The woman didn’t take a purse or money with her.
Melissa Morales is described as follows:
- Hispanic woman
- brown hair
- brown eyes
- about 5 foot, 7 inches tall
- weighing 200-225 pounds
- Last seen in a 2002 black Honda CR-V
Heddon said Morales family members distributed fliers about the missing woman as they traveled to Austin recently. A gas station operator along the way thought he recognized the woman from a picture on the flier. Otherwise, however, there have been few leads in the case.
Having recently heard of the disappearance, Tim Miller of Texas EquuSearch said that he was more than willing to help out in the search for Melissa Morales.
“Tell Rosenberg we’d be more than happy to become involved in that,” said EquuSearch Director Timothy Miller.
Heddon said her department is considering contacting Miller’s organization for assistance in conducting a more intensive search for Morales.
Rosenberg Police ask that anyone with information about Morales call the department at 281-342-5566.
Melissa Morales was reported missing on Dec. 11 at 8:41 a.m. from her home at 412 Dogwood in Rosenberg.
“At this time, we’re not expecting any type of foul play,” Seymour said. “But the family said it is unusual for her to leave the house and be gone this long without calling or having any kind of contact with them.”
Rosenberg police ask that if anyone has seen Morales, they should call the Rosenberg Police Department at 281-342-5566 or Seymour at 832-595-3728.
