Police Search For Missing Woman

From the HoCo PD:

Howard County Police are searching for a Columbia woman who was last seen more than a week ago. Investigators suspect foul play in the disappearance of Elda Vazquez, 28, and are asking anyone with information to contact police.

Vazquez was reported missing by a friend yesterday. She was last seen Jan. 22 around 10:30 p.m. entering a cab in the parking lot of Eggspectation restaurant on University Blvd. in Ellicott City, near Route 108 and Snowden River Parkway.

Detectives believe Vazquez was dropped off by the cab driver in the 8700 block of Tamar Drive near her home. Vazquez’s roommates told police she never came home that night.

Police are suspicious because Vazquez did not tell anyone she was planning to leave, nor did she pack any of her belongings. She worked two jobs, seven days a week, but hasn’t reported to work or contacted her employers in a week. Detectives have contacted Vazquez’s friends and family, and no one has heard from her since her disappearance.

Police are urging anyone with information to call police at 410-313-3200. Investigators are hoping to talk with anyone who knows Vazquez or who may have seen something suspicious on Tamar Drive Jan. 22.
