Circumstances

It was March 26, 2010, in Austin, Texas. It was the day of Julie Gonzalez’s disappearance. On this day, she was supposed to pick up her two-year-old daughter at the home of her estranged husband. His name is George De La Cruz. He lived on Garden Oaks Drive. Both Julie and George shared custody of the child. Each kept her for one day at a time. According to her husband, Julie was acting “spaced out” and came off as depressed when she arrived at his home. She asked him to keep their daughter for the weekend. And he agreed. At that point, Julie Gonzalez was never heard from again.

After Her Disappearance

A week after she vanished, Julie Gonzalez’s car was found abandoned. It is described as a gold 2006 Impala. It was found in the parking lot of Walgreens pharmacy in south Austin. Julie had recently bought it used. And her car still had the paper tags. The pharmacy had it towed. Actually, Julie had worked as a pharmacy technician at another Walgreens. So it’s unclear why her car was left at this particular location. After she was last seen, Gonzalez’s cellular phone was used to post to her My Space page. The post stated that she was sick of her life and wanted to run away.

Leaving Her Man

The My Space posts led authorities to believe that Julie Gonzalez had disappeared voluntarily. But they changed their minds when weeks and months passed and no one heard from Julie Gonzalez. Since she disappeared, the only activity on Gonzalez’s financial account was a movie that was purchased at a Best Buy Store. Twelve days after Julie was last seen, an unidentified woman, who was not Gonzalez, had bought the movie. According to Gonzalez’s family, she had initiated the divorce from De La Cruz after less than a year of marriage.

Family Dynamics

According to Julie’s family, at the time of her disappearance she was seeing another man. Gonzalez was upset because De La Cruz played video games too much. He even played on his video the night that Julie was in labor with their child. Reportedly, De La Cruz was despondent over the breakup. He didn’t want the marriage to end. And he refused to sign the divorce papers. Investigators searched and reportedly impounded his two vehicles after Julie disappeared. And authorities stared that he wasn’t cooperating with the investigation. De La Cruz’s use of the video game console dropped markedly in the days after Julie went missing.

It’s been so long since I last wrote something to my sweet girl.
The fact that we don’t know where you are or what happened to you is hard for me to accept.
I am learning to cope with what is.
Our hope is to find the truth, that is all we want.
My dear Julie Ann, your baby girl is the light of our dark days. She soon will be 10 and in the 5th grade.
Time stops for no one.
She loves you so much!!!
I know you love and miss her.
Nothing takes away the pain but, loving Layla brings us so much comfort.
God knows we continue to pray for answers . I trust in his time we will get them.
Rest with your Angels.
I love you
~Mom

Appeal

I saw Sandra Soto, Julie’s mom on a true crime program. She was being interviewed by true crime reporter and former MSNBC journalist Tamron Hall. She is heartbroken over her daughter, Julie. She is raising Julie’s daughter, whose name is Layla. She says that at this point, all she wants is to know where Julie is. Someone has been given a life sentence in Julie’s disappearance, but she still isn’t home. Julie’s daughter is ten years old. When she reaches her teens, Layla will ask about her mom. And someone (s) has information that this family desperately needs!
