California authorities have reported that Jolissa Fuentes, a 22-year-old woman, has been missing since Sunday, August 7.

According to her family, Jolissa Fuentes was last seen when she took her car to an AM/PM gas station on Nebraska Avenue in Selma, California. Despite suspicions of foul play, the Selma Police Department is not yet investigating the case as an abduction.

ABC reported that Fuentes was last seen in a gray 2011 Hyundai Accent with the license plate number 8MPU766. The vehicle has not yet been recovered.

She described Jolissa as being "a courageous woman" with a "sweet heart."

Nunez acknowledged that Jolissa Fuentes made a phone call to her sister at 5:26 am on Sunday, though the call went unanswered. This was the last recorded call that she made.
