NEW YORK (July 9) - A Manhattan skyscraper in one of the most security-conscious parts of the city has become the scene of an unlikely missing persons mystery.
Police are trying to figure out what happened to a cleaning woman who vanished midway through her shift Tuesday evening at an office tower a few hundred feet from the World Trade Center reconstruction site.
Eridania Rodriguez, 46, punched in for work at 2 Rector Street around 5 p.m. She donned her blue uniform, chatted with other after-hours employees and was last seen on security cameras around 7 p.m., according to a lawyer for her family, Daniel Ferreira.
Then, she disappeared.
The building's cameras never recorded her leaving the skyscraper. She didn't meet up with co-workers for her regular subway ride home to Manhattan's Washington Heights section. Her purse and street clothes remained in her locker.
The woman's family is distraught and fears the worst, Ferreira said.
Police quietly sealed off the building Wednesday morning to hunt for clues. They found no trace of the missing woman. Workers were finally allowed back in shortly before noon.
"It's a mind blower. How do you go missing here?" said Rob Ross, an executive assistant in the studio of architect Daniel Libeskind, who moved to the tower after getting the commission to redesign ground zero.
Security in the building is typical for the financial district. Employees need identification cards to enter. Security cameras cover every entrance and many public areas. Every visitor is photographed before they are allowed up from the lobby.news.aol.com...|main|dl1|link6|http%3A%2F%2Fnews.aol.c om%2Farticle%2Feridania-rodriguez-disappearance%2F564622

This type of ocurance has happend several times through out history, here are a few examples:
It was the night of November 25, 1809. The world was at war with Napoleon Bonaparte and uncertain frantic alliances were being formed across Europe to counter him. Vienna had fallen, and Britain’s diplomat in the area, Benjamin Bathurst, was on his way north to Hamburg to return to Britain.

Not far from Berlin in the town of Perleberg, Bathurst stopped in the evening under an assumed name with an assistant to take on fresh horses and to have dinner. It was nearly 9 pm when the horses were prepared. Bathurst, wanting to get to Berlin as soon as possible, left his assistant and went outside to wait in the carriage. That would be the last time anyone would ever see Benjamin Bathurst.

Moments later his assistant left the Inn only to find the carriage empty. No sign of Bathurst was to be found, and one of the strangest stories in history of a disappearance was born.

Word reached England some weeks later when the assistant arrived in London. Bathurst’s wife herself went to Germany and coordinated with the police investigation into the matter. The river Stepnitz was scoured to no avail. The village was searched exhaustively several times with only a coat reported to belong to Bathurst found in an outhouse, and a pair of pantaloons thought to belong to him found some distance away in the woods. Even after an exhaustive search with dogs of the entire area, no other trace was found.
Another famous tale is that of David Lang of Tennesse, a farmer who in full view of his family vanished in thin air. One second he was visible, the next he was not as he walked across a field. We need not recount this very famous story in detail here, but it remains one of the greatest examples of inexplicable human disappearance in the annals of the paranormal. url=http://www.unexplained-mysteries.com/viewnews.php?id=148236]http://www.unexplained-mysteries.com/viewnews.php?id=148236[/url]
What causes such things?
Are there really portals to other dimensions?
If so why take the people that are taken?
What are your thoughts?

That is pretty trippy. I would like to check out some other cases like this. Thanks for finding this. S&F for you.

maybe she fell down an elevator shaft? i dont know.

perhaps there are secret underground tunnels built in case there is some emergency

The answer is obvious

She is still in the building or went out with the Trash

They need to bring in dogs get them on her scent and comb the building top to bottom

If that doesn't lend results the next step is to track the garbage by location to where it was finally laid to rest.

Her body will be found in one scenario or the other...

Likely though they will not use such manpower for a single woman, sadly...

All "normal" entrances have Security Cameras, but do the heating tunnels, ventilation shafts, sewer gratings, etc? Sub-floors in skyscrapers are generally locked but otherwise never given a second thought. They are also pretty labyrinthine, which makes them difficult to thoroughly search for a missing person.

Likewise Security Cameras are not tamper-proof. Overcoming Security Cameras are a staple in every novel and movie these days, with plenty of examples of what really does work and what conceivably could work.

Really though, why would someone bother to go through that much trouble to cover up the disappearance of a middle-aged Hispanic Housekeeper while drawing even more media attention and scrutiny to the incident than would normally happen?

However, if Eridania Rodriguez was wanting to disappear, then the alternate possibilities become far more probable with this particular M.O.

Regardless, it's pretty good material to base a lot of theories on (and an episode of the X-Files or two).

I can think of a hundred ways that this could have happened and none of them have anything to do with the paranormal or Aliens.

Probably staged to get out of a relationship....most common reason. To bad it wasen't a "Skull & Bone" member, take your pic.

They jump down and when they hit the ground the shock evaporates them

Oklahoma has been reported to have it's own "dimensional portal" in Beaver, Oklahoma.

In Beaver, we have our own Bermuda triangle-type phenomena it seems. Reports of mysterious disappearances since Coronado came through our Hills in the State Park. It is known locally as the Shamen's Portal because it is a well-known Indian holy place. It is otherwise known as the Beaver sands Portal. Over 35 disappearances have been reported so far it its history. Some have speculated it to be a crash site for aliens.

The problem here is that she is an hispanic maid, if it was a socialite rich white woman it wouldn't be "oh well shes dissapeared, open the doors and let everyone back in"

that is pathetic policework.

Trash chutes and laundry chutes are other building exits that don't generally have Security Cameras (along with the other exits that I mentioned in my previous post.) Good call!

Also, most skyscrapers have Incinerators in the basement or sub-floor. Considering how frequently a murder on CSI type shows is hidden by attempting to incinerate the remains, this is always an overlooked possibility. Most homicide detectives would think to look there, but would building security?

Foul-play is indeed likely, as is the woman purposely disappearing. I agree that Alien Abduction, Christian Rapture, Spontaneous Combustion, and Wormholes to an Alternate Dimension are all the least probable of the myriad of possibilities in this case.

women tries to clean chute and falls down? Who knows, kinda creepy.

What if she left the building under an assumed identity, which happened to include a physical disguise? They need to obviously make certain that everyone who was seen exiting the building, was ALSO witnessed entering the building to begin with.

I assume they haven't found her cleaning materials - brush, dustpan, cloth, spray, etc?

That surely then suggests foul play. If she just wanted to leave the building or if she fell down a chute she surely wouldn't have had them all with her - so it sounds like someone has taken her & all of the bits as well to cover their tracks.

I wonder if their are any concealed/secret rooms/floors in there.

I agree.Before thinking paranormal i would use the dogs.Also almost all the city skyscrapers have the drop ceilings.If see was killed her body could be in one of those.

The world is a mysterious place, one cannot appreciate the mystery unless one is a Shaman.

I have seen things unable to be explained in words.

The forces of other realities are subtle in many ways and they are too subtle for the normal person to perceive. Skinwalkers, allies, elemental forces and inexplicable openings in our 3rd density realm.

If one "see's" and is a man of knowledge these mysteries make perfect sense.

Body Found in Manhattan High-Rise Where Cleaning Woman Vanished


NEW YORK — A body hidden inside a Manhattan high-rise where a cleaning woman vanished four days ago was found Saturday morning.

Investigators had traveled Friday to a landfill in Pennsylvania where the building's garbage is taken, on the chance that someone had taken her body out with the trash.

Police spokesman Paul Browne said the corpse was found just before 9 a.m., stuffed in an air conditioning duct in a utility room on the 12th floor of the tower where Eridania Rodriguez vanished Tuesday.

Authorities didn't immediately confirm the identity of the corpse, but it was presumed to be Rodriguez, who was 46 and lived in Manhattan. She was married with several children.




The poor family...
