She was last seen in the company of a female babysitter, Melissa Cooper (or Melissa Jones or Harding-Jones) (photo near right) when she took the child for a two-week vacation in Punta Gorda, Florida at the Trail Apartments. Pilar's father, Marco Rodriguez, notified police when the babysitter and Pilar did not return as scheduled. The babysitter was later located in Wisconsin but the child is still missing. The babysitter told authorities that her boyfriend, Keith Allen Wilson (photo far right), was responsible for Pilar's death and that he had put her body in a black trash bag and disposed of the child's remains in an unknown location. Wilson denied Cooper's allegations, saying that Cooper was responsible for Pilar's death.
