Metro Police are asking for the public's help in finding a dancer in Luxor's "Fantasy" show who went missing Sunday night.
Police said Deborah Flores-Narvaez, 31, left the area of Las Vegas Boulevard and Tropicana Avenue about 7 p.m. Sunday and hasn't been seen since. She drives a four-door, maroon 1997 Chevrolet Prism that has Maryland license plate 73547CD.
Flores-Narvaez is described as about 5-feet-5-inches tall and 120 pounds with brown hair and brown eyes.
According to Deborah Flores-Narvaez's MySpace page, she is a ballroom, Latin and hip-hop dancer who previously worked for the Washington Redskin Cheerleader Ambassadors in 2007 and 2008. She is originally from Puerto Rico and says on her MySpace biography that she earned a law degree and a bachelor's degree in international business.
"I am well-cultured, quick witted, intelligent, considerate and humorous," her biography says. "I'm blessed with a substantial amount of common sense."
Her sister, Celeste Flores-Narvaez, said she is taking the "quickest flight out" of Atlanta on Friday morning to help with search efforts in Las Vegas.
Celeste Flores-Narvaez said her sister's roommate contacted their family in Atlanta when she failed to show up for a late-night dance practice Sunday and a show on Monday.
"She knew something was wrong when my sister didn't show up for practice," Celeste Flores-Narvaez said. "My sister is always at practice."
Deborah Flores-Narvaez, who goes by "Debbie," apparently stopped by her ex-boyfriend's residence Sunday evening, but he told their family she left before the season finale of the television show "Dexter," her sister said.
Celeste Flores-Narvaez said her sister's cell phone is shut off and there hasn't been any activity on her Facebook or MySpace accounts.
Celeste Flores-Narvaez described her sister, who has lived in Las Vegas for about two years, as someone who "wears her heart around her sleeve."
"She's very creative. She loves dancing," she said. "She loves people and being around her friends."
Deborah Flores-Narvaez typically wears bright colors and has a faded imprint of an old tattoo in the shape of a joker on her ankle, Celeste Flores-Narvaez said. She has lived at an apartment complex on Duke Ellington Way, which is near Tropicana Avenue and Las Vegas Boulevard.
Anita Mann, owner of Anita Mann Productions, which is the producer of "Fantasy," released the following statement Thursday on the search for Deborah Flores-Narvaez: "Our hearts and prayers are with Debbie's family through this difficult time. We strongly urge anyone who may have information about her whereabouts to contact Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department, immediately."
Anyone with information is being asked to contact Metro's missing persons detail at (702) 828-2907.
