There’s now a Crimestoppers award of up to $2,000 for information leading to the whereabouts of Rosemary Rodriguez – investigators suspect foul play in the woman’s disappearance last week.
The 54-year-old was last seen Oct. 7 as she left a residence in the area of Mt. Pisgah Road.
“Investigators have been working on this non-stop since she was reported missing,” GCSO Lt. Josh Tubb confirmed Tuesday after announcing “criminal activity may be involved” in the missing person case. Few other details can be shared: “It being an open investigation that may have a criminal element to it, we’re very limited in what we can put out.”
Described as a white woman, 5’4” and 185 pounds, Rodriguez was reportedly wearing a blue Walmart smock and blue pants when she was last seen. She drives a green 2014 Chevrolet Sonic, license plate GCM3117.
“Our deputies, they are on patrol all the time, always looking for the vehicle of any missing person, which is the case here as well,” Tubb added. The sheriff’s office is hopeful civilians might spot the car: “We would just ask everybody to be mindful as they travel around this area. The most important thing we can do is ask them to call us.
“Our investigators, they’re not slowing down, they’re not stopping. They’re looking for Ms. Rodriguez and we’re asking for the public’s help. If anybody might know anything, you never know when the smallest piece of the puzzle can bring the whole picture into view.”
