    Details of Disappearance

    Aragon was last seen between 2:00 and 3:00 p.m. on July 20, 2005 at her aunt's residence in the vicinity of Gilbert Road and Elliot Road in Gilbert, Arizona. She left the residence with her boyfriend, Steven B. Bishop. The couple made some transactions at an ATM and a dollar store in the area after they left. Aragon has never been heard from again. Her burgundy 1986 Subaru station wagon with license plates numbered 286 PDE was later found abandoned west of Lake Pleasant, Arizona, in area so remote it had to be accessed by helicopter. Some of her personal belongings were inside it. Her other vehicle, a 1990s pickup truck with faded green paint, is missing.

    Aragon had two warrants out for her arrest at the time of her disappearance; she failed to appear in court on charges of drug possession and endangering the life or health of a minor. Bishop also has warrants out for him; he was released from prison in 2004 after more than five years' of incarceration for aggravated assault, and after his released he failed to meet with his parole officer. He also failed to appear in court for sentencing on a domestic violence charge he had pleaded guilty to. Bishop disappeared along with Aragon and has not been located. A photograph of him is posted below this case summary.

    Aragon was in the process of a divorce and custody battle at the time of her disappearance. Her family stated she'd been associating with criminals and drug addicts and didn't have a permanent home; she would stay with relatives in Gilbert, Peoria and Phoenix, Arizona for a few weeks at a time. Bishop has a criminal record; he had served prison time for assault. Aragon's family doesn't believe he was involved in her disappearance, however. They believe whatever happened to her may have happened to him as well.

    Aragon's relatives are concerned for her safety and fear she may be deceased. She has three young children, one of whom was killed in a traffic accident four months before her disappearance. He was ten years old. Aragon's loved ones stated she was depressed over her son's death, but they did not believe she would have taken her own life or willingly abandoned her surviving children. Investigators describe her disappearance as suspicious. Her case remains unsolved.
