Las Desaparecidas

Missing Girls and Women of New Mexico from 2018

I recently went through the spreadsheet of missing women and girls in New Mexico. I started keeping this list years and years ago, but thankfully many of the women have been found and I removed them from the list. However, many more women and girls have gone missing and are still missing (as far as I can tell) at the time of this posting. The whole spreadsheet can be found here. 

The list is extensive, so today I will tackle the missing from 2018 that I haven’t already covered (I’ve already covered Julia Vicente, Rita Jaramillo, and Angie Buckholtz Romero).


Jessica Mora Thursday, January 11, 2018 40 Santa Fe
Jazmyn Toler Friday, May 18, 2018 17 Las Cruces
Julia Vicente Sunday, June 3, 2018 59 Shiprock
Amber Simpson Sunday, July 15, 2018 35 Belen
Ariana Rose Marquez Sunday, August 5, 2018 16 Albuquerque
Rita Jaramillo Thursday, September 20, 2018 49 Los Lunas
Angie Romero Sunday, October 14, 2018 43 Albuquerque
Barbara Gould Tuesday, November 13, 2018 73 Bluewater

Jessica Mora 

Jessica was last seen on January 11th, 2018 in Pojaque, New Mexico at the Buffalo Thunder Casino. Jessica has a pink mohawk. She does not have a known address. Someone on a Facebook post commented that they had seen Jessica at the Route 66 casino by a machine near the front door of the casino, but I’m not sure what became of the tip. Despite intensive googling, I could not find any more information about her disappearance, and she is not yet listed on NAMUS. 

I reached out to three people who knew Jessica, and I’m waiting on their responses.

Jazmyn Toler


15-year-old Jazymn Toler was last seen on Friday, May 18th, 2018 in Las Cruces, New Mexico. I made contact with Jazmyn and she told me that she is safe and living a very happy life in a different state.

Amber Simpson

“Amber Simpson was last seen July 15, 2018 in Belen, New Mexico.” This is literally the only information I was able to find on Amber- however, I’ve possibly found a social media account for her and I’m trying to make contact.


Ariana Rose Marquez 


16-year-old Ariana went missing from Albuquerque. She was last seen getting into a tan, single cab truck while wearing a blue floral shirt, jean shorts, and black shoes on Sunday, May 5th, 2018. Ariana is currently 18. This is the only information I’ve been able to find on Ariana, and I haven’t been able to find any social media profiles for her.


Barbara Gould


Once again, I couldn’t find very much information on Barbara’s disappearance. Barbara Ann Gould was last seen November 14, 2018 in Grants, New Mexico, on Bluegill Drive.

Denise Coultas-Parker

In a strange coincidence, Denise was also reported missing ion November 2018, but in Los Angeles, California. However, her car was then found in Acoma Pueblo in New Mexico on November 12th, 2018, one mile south of Interstate 40 exit 102 at the intersection of Pueblo Road and Flower Mountain Circle. In March 2019, Denise’s remains were sadly found on Acoma Pueblo. Denise was known to have suffered from multiple sclerosis and had developed amnesia and paranoia around the time of her disappearance.
