Reward Offered for Leads on Missing Woman

July 18, 2001|From Times Staff Reports

Ventura County sheriff's officials announced a $25,000 reward Tuesday for information about the disappearance of Megan Barroso, a 20-year-old Moorpark woman whose bullet-riddled car was found near a freeway overpass this month.

The Moorpark City Council plans today to consider increasing the $25,000 reward by $10,000.

Barroso was last seen leaving a friend's Thousand Oaks home shortly after 2:30 a.m. July 5. Police believe she was alone in the dark green Pontiac Sunfire and on her way home when she disappeared.

A private security guard saw her damaged rental car slung over a median near a Moorpark Freeway offramp about two miles from her home. The engine was still running.

Police launched a massive hunt, combing the freeway, hillsides and industrial parks.
