Cenla Family Still Looking for Missing Woman

Posted: Updated:

RAPIDES PARISH, La. -- Back in 2010, 25-year-old Dorothy Eyvonne Rosier left her purse, her wallet, cash at home and was never heard from again. Police are hoping someone will remember something to help give her family answers.

News Channel Five's Brooke Buford sat down with Eyvonne's family, as well, as investigators and even possibly the one person who saw her before she disappeared.  

It was no surprise for 25-year-old Eyvonne Rosier's family to have her go off away from home for a few days.

"Because of the situation, her situation, everybody wanted think, oh she'll be back," said Tesia Rosier, her sister. "She's just gone away for a minute, she'll be back."

According to her family, the mother of three was always on the go.

"She had a big attitude. always smiling," she said. "Always good to be around. Dynamite in a small package, there you go. That would be Eyvonne."

But around the time of her disappearance, Eyvonne hit a few rough patches in life, including several arrests. This time, when she left two years ago, it was different.

"I started calling around and trying to figure out where everybody was, who had heard from her. just magically, nobody has heard from her,' she said.

This time she never came back.

"When did my daughter come up missing? January 11, 2010," said her father, Dexter Rosier.

A week after she went missing, Eyvonne's family filed a missing persons report with the Rapides Parish Sheriff's Office.

"We found through our investigation that some things she, as far as her background goes, there are circumstances that we feel are a part of this investigation and could be part of why she's missing at this point," said Major Jasper Bay, RPSO.

Investigators looked a key pieces of evidence. The first, what was left behind when Eyvonne went missing.

"She wasn't at a point to where she knew where she was going to be at the next day," said Tesia. "She would have her stuff with her. Her purse was left. Her shoes were left. Her make-up was left. Money in her purse. Everything was left."

They also looked at what's been described as a rocky relationship with her troubled boyfriend, Sidney Willis. He too had been in and out of jail, and is currently back in.

Deputies also interviewed Paul Jackson, the former boyfriend of Rosier's mother, who has since passed away. Eyvonne was staying with Jackson at his home in Pineville when she disappeared.

"I don't know," said Jackson. "It was just one of those things when she had a phone call and decided to leave, she just took off. She used to do that when she stayed with me. In this case, she never came back. I don't know. The police might think that she might be dead, but I don't know. No body, no evidence."

And with that lack of evidence, investigators say two years later, they've hit a road block.

"We've gotten hundreds of leads," said Major Bay. "We've explored each and every one of them. So far, all of the leads have come up to a dead end."

Now, with more than two years of looking for Eyvonne, her family says they've reached their breaking point.

"It's just hard. Lots of people act like it's not a big deal. It's a big deal to her friends, to our family," said Tesia.

They tell us that sometimes it seems like they're the only ones still looking and praying for Eyvonne.

"Just keep looking," said Dexter. "Pray to the Lord that she'll show up one day."

It's a search they say they'll continue until they get answers.

"God's not asleep. God knows," said Tesia. "And, even if we don't find out soon, we all pray that something will give, of course. But if not, it's not going to go away."

Last year Eyvonne's case received national attention when it was featured on the "Nancy Grace" show. Investigators say that opened the door for more leads, but still no suspects.

Evyonne is described as being 4' 11" and weighing 100 lbs. She has brown hair and hazel eyes. If you have any information about her whereabouts, you're asked to contact RPSO.
