Texas Equusearch volunteers comb east Houston looking for missing mom

HOUSTON - The search for a missing Houston woman becomes more desperate.

Maria Jimenez-Rodriguez, 29,  is still missing and has not been seen since Thursday.

Her car was found early Friday morning and now volunteers from Texas EquuSearch are looking for any sign of her on the east side of Houston.

Maria's sister says that it's unlike her to leave without notice, especially since she has a 3 year-old daughter. She added that when Maria is not at work, she is with her daughter.
