As ABC 13 News reports, authorities are asking for the public’s help in finding the mother of two, who disappeared in the early morning hours of September 11. Roy had worked an overnight shift at a postal complex in Houston, getting off work at about 6:30 am.
Roy got in her car — a black Lincoln sedan with Texas license plate JSZ-1087 and the word “beast” written on the sides in chrome lettering. She then called her father to let him know she was getting off of work. However, Roy never made it back to the apartment building where her niece was watching Roy’s ten-month-old and five-year-old sons.
Family members told ABC 13 that it was unlike Roy to disappear like this and that she usually calls if she will be even a little bit late. According to KPRC News, family members also say there have been problems between Roy and the father of her children.
One cousin told ABC 13 that they are desperate for news of Roy and hopeful she’ll be found:
“We don’t know if they’re living or they dead, we don’t know nothing right now, and it’s waiting, and it’s killing everybody right now.”
Roy was last seen wearing her work clothing: a blue USPS hoodie, black shoes, and gray leggings. She is approximately five feet, three inches tall and 135 pounds. She has black hair, which is often pulled back and wears glasses with purple frames.
