Police report that on the night of her disappearannce, she had an argument with her husband. Mr. Rogers told police he awoke during the night. When he didn't see his wife, he assumed she was sleeping on the couch. When he got up in the morning her boots, jeans, and coat were gone. Her purse, hearing aids, and car keys were left behind. In addition, her two children who were ages one and six years also remained at home. Mr. Rogers was not initially worried and did not contact police right away.
Police further stated that her husband fully cooperated with the first investigation and while he has never been ruled out, he is not a suspect either. No physical evidence was collected from the Rogers home because there were no signs of a struggle and no blood at the scene. None of her close friends or relatives have had any contact with Rogers since the day of her disappearance. Also, there has been no activity on her Social Security number.
