FBI Urges Public to Come Forward as Mother and Daughter Go Missing in Mexico


The FBI is currently seeking information on a mother-daughter duo from South Texas who went missing near the Mexican border. Jessica Garcia Rojo, 17, and her mother Juana Marcela Rojo, 55, were last seen on May 15 in Nuevo León, Mexico, near the city of Monterrey.

The FBI reports that the pair was driving a white Dodge Caravan with New Mexico license plates 609 XBC when they were last spotted. Jessica is 5 feet 5 inches tall, 158 pounds, with brown hair and eyes. Her mother, Juana, is 5 feet 1 inch tall, 210 pounds, with brown hair and eyes.

According to investigators, Jessica has ties in the region and is bilingual, speaking both English and Spanish. Juana is primarily a Spanish speaker. The FBI believes that Jessica and her mother are still in Mexico and has urged anyone with information to come forward.

The public is encouraged to call the FBI San Antonio office at (210) 225-6741 or submit tips online at tips.fbi.gov/home. Information can be given anonymously.

The FBI is working to locate Jessica and her mother, and any information received will be thoroughly investigated and treated with the utmost priority.
