Day five of searching, we are not giving up. Yesterday, the family got called into the Harlingen PD to view surveillance video from McDonalds and the suspect is driving a light gray newer model of a Ford Escape Truck/SUV.
Harlingen P.D. posted a familiar picture of the vehicle on their website. The suspect made a fist punch with my niece as soon as he approached the drive thru window; therefore, he knows my niece. They had a small conversation at the window. On the video, we are able to see this “man” not a teenager is wearing a white cap, with a black shirt, his full left arm is fully seen and seems to be a big man. He had a lot of hair on his arm. We cannot see his face. I’m terrified. This is no teenager-friend of my niece. He’s an older man just by looking at his arm. The video shows that she is waiting by the front door for her “ride” to arrive around 1:30 a.m. and steps out of McDonalds. The video from the outside view shows the same Ford Escape arriving and parking at view where the camera can’t be reached. The video shows the vehicle reverse and drives off on Washington Ave passing by St. Paul’s Church. License plates aren’t visible.
A San Benito family is asking for help from the public. 19-year-old Nahomi Rodriguez went missing Saturday at 1:30 a.m. She was reportedly last seen leaving her work at McDonald’s on 77 Sunshine Strip in Harlingen. She was apparently given a ride home and never made it to her house. Please help us find her. Anybody with knowledge of her whereabouts is urged to contact her aunt, Enedina Sanchez. She can be reached at 956-742-2921
