Kyle was last seen on March 4, 2015. He left home with his roommate and two male friends to go on a fishing trip to Lake Livingston, which was over 100 miles away from his home, and was last seen leaving the lake to go back home to his residence in Katy, Texas. Rugg left his own vehicle, a 2003 Silver Hyundai Elantra with the Texas license plate number CD4 Z207, behind at home when he left on the fishing trip. When his roommate returned home from the same trip, however, Kyle's vehicle was missing. He didn't have a bank account or any credit cards at the time of his disappearance, and his cellular phone has gone dead.
It's uncharacteristic of Kyle to leave without warning. His family stated he worked construction jobs, had plans to attend welding school and wanted to become self-sufficient. Foul play is suspected in his disappearance, which remains unsolved.
If you have information about Kyle please report it to:
Ryan Esparza / Pasadena TX.
After Ryan Jacob Esparza disappeared on what seemed like a typical Thursday, on June 14, 2007, his mother assumed he had stayed at his girlfriend's home. When he didn't show up the next morning, she panicked and reported him missing.
Esparza, who works in accounts receivable for Briggs Equipment, called the jail and "every hospital from Fort Bend to the Louisiana border."
Pasadena police Detective Chris MacGregor said two persons of interest did not pan out. One police theory is that Ryan stole some drugs, and the person he took them from sought revenge. But no one found evidence.
"We looked at every kind of direction, but it always came back to drugs and these two acquaintances who said he took them," his mother said.
Maria Jimenez-Rodriguez/Houston TX. Missing 6/21/18
If you know anything about the disappearance of Maria Jimenez-Rodriguez, please call Houston police at 713-308-3600.
Jimenez-Rodriguez was last seen Thursday morning around 8 a.m., when she left home for the law firm where she works as a paralegal. She dropped her 3-year-old daughter off at her next-door neighbor's house in the 6900 block of Texarkana, then came home to get her gym bag and purse.
Her brother watched as she left the house to drive to the office. But a short time later, Jimenez-Rodriguez apparently texted a co-worker saying she'd be late.
That didn't raise any red flags at first, according to the missing woman's sister, Gloria Jimenez.
A little bit later, the coworker received a text saying that Jimenez-Rodriguez was headed back to her neighbor's to pick up her daughter, who wasn't feeling well.
Roxanne Paltauf- Austin TX. July 2006

Michelle Prasek was last seen when she was 12 years old in her home in the 3000 block of Valerie Lane in South County on the morning of Dec. 19, 1997. Prasek’s mother, Beth, said her daughter was in the house at 7:30 a.m. as she left for work.
However, Conroe Independent School District records show Michelle, a 5-foot-3, 135-pound Knox Junior High School student, did not attend school that day, MCSO Cold Case Detective Tommy Duroy said.
Prasek, who was 12 when she disappeared the week before Christmas in 1997, apparently never showed up at Knox Middle School in The Woodlands and hasn't been seen since her mom left home that day at 7:30 a.m.
The case is still open and the Montgomery County Sheriff's Office is still trying to find out where Michelle is or what happened to her.
