Family remembers teen missing for five years

Family remembers teen missing for five years

The family of a missing Austin teenager who disappeared five years ago Thursday, plastered the intersection where she was last seen with missing person fliers.
“That missing link to the puzzle, that's what I'm hoping for,” said Liz Harris, the mother of 18-year-old Roxanne Paltauf.

On July 7th, 2006 Roxanne Paltauf was staying at the Budget Inn Motel at I-35 and Rundberg with her then-boyfriend. He was the last person to see her alive.

The boyfriend told police that he and Paltauf had an argument and that she walked away from the motel leaving behind her purse, cell phone, and shoes.

In April of 2011 Austin police moved Roxanne’s case out of the Missing Persons Unit to the Cold Case Unit.

“There is someone out there who does know what happened to her that's probably not involved in what happened to her," said Austin Police Detective Richard Faithful.

In the past five years, Paltauf’s family has gone to every extreme trying to find her or information regarding her disappearance. Using everything from billboard ads to a spot on the national television show “America’s Most Wanted” and countless searches. Five years later Roxanne’s family is not giving up.

“We are a strong family, and we’ll keep looking for Roxanne if it’s another five years,” said Liz Harris.

Anyone with information is encouraged to call Crimestoppers at 472-TIPS. Any tip leading to an arrest could result in a $1,000 reward. You can remain anonymous.
