Vanessa Guillen, a 20-year-old US Soldier went missing from the U.S. Fort Hood Army post in Texas. She was last seen in the parking lot of her barracks on April 22, 2020. Before Guillen went missing, she informed her family that she was being sexually harassed by one of her sergeants at Fort Hood. She did not identify the man by name.[1] Before her disappearance, Vanessa’s mother, Gloria, advised her to report him. Vanessa informed her mother that other women had reported the sergeant and that they were dismissed and that she wanted to report the sergeant herself. In response, Vanessa stated that “she could put a stop to it herself”out of fear that her mother would be harmed if her mother were to report the sergeant. A few weeks later, Vanessa disappeared.-wikipedia
