On October 1, 2003, Carrasco was last seen by her cousins as she went to bed at 11:00 p.m. that night. At 6:00 a.m., they went to wake her up and she was not there. The next morning, when her room was checked, Carrasco was missing. Her room had a door leading to the outside, and it was unlocked.
According to her aunt and uncle whom she was living with at the time, she was an avid runner. They think she may have gone out running that morning. However, she went missing a couple of miles outside of town where the terrain is rugged; rocks, cactus and thorns. It is not a place where people would venture without shoes. Balmorhea is a small town with a lake, caves and rocky cliffs. Since Monica was reportedly barefoot, investigators surmise she probably would not have gone near the rough terrain. Instead, they believe she walked toward nearby Highway 17 and may have been picked up by a stranger.
