On February 2, 2010, Rogers’ family filed a missing persons report with the Port Orange Police Department after she failed to answer her phone or return any calls.

The cell phone’s GPS signal was last traced to an area in New Port Richey, Florida. Since Laurel Rogers’s disappearance, her bank account and phone records have had no activity.

According to her family, Rogers struggled with prescription drug abuse due to her chronic pain. She reportedly frequented areas known for drug activity in Daytona Beach, Florida, to use and sell prescription drugs.
At the time of her disappearance, Rogers was on probation for a 2009 theft conviction. In addition to being a missing person, she is classified as an absconder/fugitive.
