    Details of Disappearance

    Villela was last seen in San Antonio, Texas on September 28, 1980. She has never been heard from again. She worked as a hairstylist at the time of her disappearance, and on the day of her disappearance she got a call from the owner of the salon she managed.They were supposed to meet at the beauty school to pick up supplies and take them to the shop, after which time Villela was going to babysit her niece and nephew. She never met the salon owner, never showed up to babysit, and has never been heard from again.

    Villela disappeared just before a scheduled October 1 trip to Chicago, Illinois, where she planned to visit her sister and attend a show for hairstylists. She was considering moving permanently to Chicago and persuing her profession there. Because her disappearance was so uncharacteristic of her behavior, her family was convinced from the beginning that she had met with foul play. There's been no indication of her whereabouts since 1980.
