LITTLEROCK – More than a year after her disappearance investigators are still seeking the whereabouts of a 27-year-old Littlerock mother. The Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors is now a $10,000 reward for information leading to the conviction of whoever is responsible for her disappearance.
Monique Figueroa was last seen at around 4:00 a.m. on May 19, 2015, when she left her home located in the 7200 block of East Avenue U-12. While her 2-year-old daughter was in the care of family, Monique drove away from her home in her black 2004 Mercedes-Benz. The family is unaware of the intended destination but a week and a half later on May 30, 2015, the vehicle was located in an abandoned Juniper Hills shed. When the vehicle was found there was no trace of the 5’3” tall 140-pound woman and there were undisclosed signs of foul play. The Homicide Bureau took over the investigation due to the suspicious circumstances surrounding her found vehicle.
Recently investigators received a tip that the remains of Monique may have been buried in the 11000 block of Pearblossom Highway in Palmdale. A search of the area was done using detectives and cadaver scent dogs but nothing was located. The family is seeking answers for themselves and for Monique’s young daughter.
Anyone who has any information pertinent to the case can call the Homicide Bureau Detectives Karen Shonka or Wayne Holston at 323-890-5500. Those who prefer to provide information anonymously, you may call “Crime Stoppers” by dialing (800) 222-TIPS (8477), or texting the letters TIPLA plus your tip to CRIMES (274637), or by using the website http://lacrimestoppers.org.
