The search continues 20 years later for Karla Rodriquez

LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — On October
20, 1999, a seven-year-old Las Vegas girl was abducted while walking to school.
20 years later, there is still hope Karla Rodriguez will be found.

She was walking to school in
the northeast part of the valley on October 20th, when she disappeared. Sunday,
Metro police released this composite sketch of what Rodriguez look would look
like now:

At a press conference on Friday,
Rodriguez’s family said they’re not giving up.

“20 years later we’re
still here hoping that someone out there please, please give us any clue we’re
still going to be here we’re not giving up until we find somebody or someone
who has seen her,” sister Rose Rodriguez said.

Metro police also announced
they are collecting DNA from Karla’s parents in hopes of finding the girl in
another database. 

“We’re going to be
entering the DNA profiles into different types of databases that are
traditionally used in a law enforcement setting in hope of obtaining a hit in
hopes that Karla Rodriguez has in fact also reached out to the same data bases
and provided her samples which may potentially provide a match and allowing us
to solve this 20 year old case,” said Lab Director Kim Kurga.

Investigators ask anyone
with any information to contact Metro police.
