Erika Gaytan’s family say it’s unlike her not to reply:
Family told KFOX it’s not like her to not reply.
‘The last time I spoke to her was, she texted me, she told me,’ ‘Can you send me a picture of my son in the movies?’ So, I went ahead, 9:30 p.m. That was the last text I got’, the father of Gaytan’s 7-year-old son, Viktor Renovato said.
Renovato said his son doesn’t know his mother is missing yet.
‘It’s been seven days. No mom. No nothing,’ the father reiterated. ‘He knows something is going on, and it’s heartbreaking. It’s a devastating week.’
Adding, ‘She’s a really good mother. She’s been with my son, whatever he’s needed. My son loves her. So, she’s a really good person. The friendliest person that I could have met’.
Gaytan’s friends told KFOX14 she posted to social media several times during the concert with her last posts showing the stage at the concert and a selfie in the bathroom.
Police to date have declined saying if they suspect foul play with the investigation ongoing and there with no new updates at present.
