HOUSTON – A 28-year-old woman is missing and hasn’t been seen since last week, the Houston Police Department said Tuesday.

Gayla Trenice Roy was last known to be at her apartment complex, at 5050 Sunflower St., officers said.

A report came in Sept. 12, saying Roy was last seen about 9 p.m. Sept. 10, before going to work, police said.

Roy is employed by the U.S. Post Office and reports to the processing plant at 4600 Aldine Bender Road.

Co-workers said she worked Sept. 11.

Relatives said she was recently having issues with the father of her children, police said.

Roy drives a black Lincoln Continental that has not been seen, either. It’s a 2011 model with the word “Beast” written on both sides in chrome, and her Texas license plate reads JSZ-1087, according to the Missing Pieces Network.

The group said Roy is 5 feet 3 inches tall, weighs 135 pounds and has black hair that is often pulled back. She has pierced ears and wears dark purple plastic-framed glasses. Roy was last seen wearing a navy blue USPS hoodie, light gray leggings and black shoes.

Roy spoke to her father on the phone as she was leaving work, but never arrived at her home at Sunflower Terrace Apartments, and now her phone goes straight to voicemail. Roy has two young children and her disappearance is very out of character, the Missing Pieces Network said.

Anyone with information about Roy is asked to call 832-394-1841.
