    Details of Disappearance
    Apreciado was last seen in the vicinity of 19th Street and Arizona in San Antonio, Texas at 3:00 p.m. on October 26, 2006. She had left her boyfriend's home and was en route to the bus stop when she called her boyfriend and said she'd noticed a car slowly circling the block and was frightened. She didn't describe the vehicle or its driver. Apreciado's boyfriend tried calling her phone back an hour later, and some other woman answered and said she'd found the phone. Apreciado has never been heard from again. Few details are available in her case.

    Search continues for SA teen missing nearly 9 years

    SAN ANTONIO - In the fall of 2006, Jennifer Apreciado was living her life like most 17-year-olds.

    "She was excited about a Halloween party," said her sister, Lisa. "She was like a little kid. That was the last time I saw her face smiling."

    Jennifer never made it to that party. She disappeared Oct. 26.

    Her absence has haunted her large family ever since.

    "If she would have left, she would have told somebody. She was not that kind of girl to up and leave and not communicate," said Lisa.

    San Antonio police agree. Melissa Martinez works in the department's Missing Persons Unit.

    "Someone out there has to know something," said Martinez. "Someone out there has to have seen something that day."

    ‘She was scared'

    Jennifer Apreciado left her boyfriend's home on the 200 block of Arizona headed for a bus stop near Wall and General McMullen. She called her boyfriend.

    "She said that a vehicle was following her and she was scared. She noticed the same vehicle driving by slowly, circling the block," said Martinez.

    Her boyfriend told police he tried calling Apreciado about an hour later. He said a strange woman answered the phone and said she had found it. Apreciado wasn't around.

    At 4 feet 8 inches tall and weighing around 95 pounds, it would have been difficult for Apreciado to put up a fight against someone taking her against her will. If that's what happened to her, there's something else about her disappearance that concerns police.

    "The fact that she disappeared in the afternoon – (in) broad daylight – and she hasn't been seen again," said Martinez. "She never made contact again with any of her siblings, her parents, anyone."

    Missing Jennifer

    In the nearly nine years since her disappearance, Apreciado's family hasn't given up the search. They've been in regular contact with police. As recently as this week, they put up new flyers in the neighborhood where she had last been seen in hopes of finding her.

    In her absence, a niece was born and named after her.

    "I just wish she was here and she could meet my kids, my brother's kids. We would all be together and have our fun days," said Lisa.

    She said her younger sister is missed.

    "She's really funny, talkative, (a) smart person," said Lisa. "(She's) loveable. It's hard for us not having her here."

    ‘Fill in the blanks'

    "We have gaps in the time-line on the day she disappeared," said Martinez.

    Apreciado's whereabouts on the day she disappeared aren't clear. Police have no specific description of the vehicle that was following her or even what the driver looked like. It's the little details that have stumped everyone looking for Apreciado.

    "Help us fill in the blanks. Any of those details might point us in the right direction, might help us find Jennifer, at least give us new leads to pursue," said Martinez. "Anything at all can be of help."

    Her family agrees.

    "We want to know something. I know people have hearts. Hopefully they have it in their heart and they'll go and tell them," said Lisa Apreciado. "It's hard not having my sister around. It's been nine years already and it's (still) hard."

    Anyone with information on the case can call SAPD's Missing Persons Unit at 210-207-7660.

    Help Us Find: Jennifer Apreciado, teen missing for more than a decade

    Jennifer Apreciado has been missing for more than 12 years.

    "There needs to be some sort of closure, “ said Sheiladawn Fitch, who has been searching for the teen.

    Once a volunteer at the now former Heidi Search Center, Fitch became a licensed private investigator to help families of missing loved ones.


    The story was that she had left her boyfriend's house and that she was walking to a bus stop. “That was the last anybody ever say of her, you have to remember though it was like 3 o’clock in the afternoon and that’s a busy neighborhood. If she was walking down the street somebody had to have seen her so somebody knows something, “ said Fitch.

    Apreciado's cell phone was reportedly found, but there was no sign of the missing teen.

    “We just need some answers, some leads to follow, “ so Jennifer can come home.

    I'm curious about why the boyfriend waited an hour before calling her back. If someone called me saying something like that, I would make them stay on the phone with me until I knew they were safely on the bus, while simultaneously texting 911. Or, call 911 immediately if I got abruptly disconnected. Why an hour? How did their phone call end, I wonder?
