Investigators have recovered “a significant piece of evidence” in their search for a missing Kilgore woman – the Gregg County Sheriff’s Office reports they’re now in possession of an electronic device owned by Rosemary Rodriguez.

There have been few reported developments in the past several weeks since the 54-year-old women disappeared in early October. GCSO previously confirmed investigators suspect “criminal activity” in the missing person case.

On Tuesday, the sheriff’s office announced the recovery of an unspecified device.

“This device is believed to be a significant piece of evidence and has been sent to a lab that specializes in forensic examination and electronic evidence recovery,” GCSO reported.

Rodriguez was last seen Oct. 7 in the area of Mt. Pisgah Road. She was reported missing the following day, and Gregg County Crimestoppers has offered an award of up to $2,000 for information leading to her whereabouts.

According to public reports, Rodriguez was last seen wearing a blue Walmart smock and blue pants. Described as a white woman, 5’4” tall and 185 pounds, her vehicle is a green 2014 Chevrolet Sonic, license plate GCM3117.
