LA's Most Wanted: Disappearance of Dora Marie Silva in 1999

Dora Marie Silva has been missing for 16 years.

On Mother's Day, May 8, 1999, the 32-year-old mom of three went for a drive and never returned. Her 1997 Chevrolet Astro van was found six days later.

Now that's she's been missing for 16 years, investigators with the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department surmise that Silva has been the victim of foul play.

Detectives hope that after all this time, someone with information about Ms. Silva's disappearance will finally break their silence.

The case is currently being handled by Detective Steve Lankford at (323) 890-5500.
