Distinguishing Characteristics Hispanic female. Brown hair, brown eyes. Melissa's hair was permed at the time of her 1993 disappearance, and she usually wore it tied in a ponytail and slicked back with gel. She has a a heart encircling the letter "M" carved near the thumb of one of her hands, scars on both knees and a one-inch scar on her chin.
Melissa's parents are divorced. She had lived with her father and two older siblings in Sacramento, California in 1993, but moved in with her mother and younger brother a month before her disappearance. She has a history of running away after arguments, but had always returned within a short time.
Melissa was close to her brother at the time of her disappearance; he says she would have never been gone this long without contacting him. She also called her grandmother daily.
Melissa's brother stated he saw some suspicious people near her apartment in the days prior to her disappearance, and he believes they may have been involved in her case. No one has been charged in connection with her disappearance, however, and no one is named as a suspect.
Due to the lack of clues in Melissa's case, it is classified as a non-family abduction. She is considered to be missing under suspicious circumstances and foul play is suspected in her disappearance.
