Police search for missing Durham woman, son

Posted August 5, 2011

— Police said Friday that they were trying to locate a Durham woman and her 2-year-old son who have been missing since last weekend.

Rossibel Vides Ramirez, 25, and her son, Jeremy Josue Romero Vides, were last seen at about 9:15 p.m. Saturday in the Walmart store at New Hope Commons, police said.

Ramirez’s husband told officers he was shopping with his wife and son when he went to another part of the store to buy a few items. When he returned to the front of the store, his wife and son were no longer there, and he hasn't seen them since, he told police.

The mother and son were reported missing Tuesday night.

Ramirez is Hispanic, 5 feet tall and about 130 pounds. She has brown eyes and black hair. The boy is Hispanic, 2½ feet tall and about 30 pounds. He has brown hair and brown eyes.

Police said they had no description of the clothes the two were last seen wearing.

Anyone with information about their whereabouts is asked to call 911 or Durham police at 919-560-4440, extension 29350.

    Why weren't they reported before Tuesday nite, if they disappeared Sunday nite? NOT A GOOD THING. He doesn't remember what they were wearing??? Come on, check out the video's...make sure he was in the store, see who left the store with them. Somethings wrong here big time.

    yeah this almost sounds like the Grant Hayes case. They had security camera images on here when they were still looking for Laura Ackerson and wral didnt say where they were even from. I just hope she took that baby and left and this isnt another story where this guy killed them...I dont know how much more of that news I can stand.

    Sounds fishy that they don't know what his wife was wearing. Maybe she finally deceided it was time to go. Hope they're found Ok.

    Maybe it was her only way to get away from him...just saw an episode like this on Without A Trace...

    There is video inside and outside of Walmarts. Should show something. He waited from Saturday until Tuesday night to report them missing? There is something wrong with this unless we are not getting all the story.
