Judith Ramona Veloz last seen location

This is the location where 19-year-old Judith Ramona Veloz was last seen.

It is situated on 30th Street, between 10th Avenue and 11th Avenue, in Manhattan, New York.

Veloz, who sometimes used the alias "Aries Jones", grew up in the Bronx. However, at the time of her disappearance, she was living in Edgewater, New Jersey.

The teenager was isolated from her family by a boyfriend who was more than twenty years her senior. After luring Veloz away from her loved ones, he began pressuring her into operating as a sex worker in Manhattan. Like many pimps, he also had other girls "working" for him.

Sadly, this kind of boyfriend-turned-pimp story is all too common in the sex trade, as these predators make it their business to woo impressionable young women, promise them the world, and then manipulate them into working the streets.

The fact that Veloz became pregnant with his daughter did not change her circumstances, as she continued to work the streets even after she had given birth.

Veloz frequently traveled from the couple's home in Edgewater, New Jersey, to work in this area.

She was last seen in the vicinity of 30th Street on Wednesday, March 3rd, 1993.

Although her family reported her disappearance to the NYPD, it seems as though her case was not taken seriously. Similar cases from the same period have shown that the authorities were extremely reluctant to file missing person reports for adults, especially those with links to the sex industry.

In October 2022, investigators from the Long Island serial killer (LISK) case uploaded Veloz's profile to the NamUs missing person database. However, it remains unclear whether they believe her disappearance is connected.

The teenager's profile was added to NamUs during the same month that the task force officially identified LISK's first known victim, "Fire Island Jane Doe", as Karen Vergata.

Veloz was 5'4" and 110 lbs. The 19-year-old had hazel eyes and naturally brown hair that was dyed strawberry blonde. She had a tattoo of a woman leaning against a lamppost on her right thigh.

Anyone with information about her case should contact the New York State Troopers in Suffolk County at (631) 756-3300.
