50 people in 50 days: Search for Texas mom

Nancy Grace's new show, "Nancy Grace: America's Missing," is dedicated to finding 50 people in 50 days. As part of the effort, which relies heavily on audience participation, CNN.com news blog "This Just In" will feature the stories of the missing.

On Monday, the show looks at 21-year-old mother and pharmacy technician Julie Ann Gonzalez. Her estranged husband, George De La Cruz, saw her last on March 26 when she picked up their daughter. Two days later, police found Gonzalez's vehicle abandoned in a Walgreen's parking lot in south Austin, Texas. She has not been seen or heard from since then.

Watch Nancy Grace Monday through Sunday starting at 8 p.m. ET on HLN. For the latest from Nancy Grace click here.

    Everyone knows Walmart is a second home to Mexicans. Go to one on a Saturday. ICE should have a compound with armed Illegal Alien Apprehension agents in every Walmart.
    The enstranged husband De La Cruz is probably guilty especially if she started seeing another guy. He would be very angry, That's the mother of his child so no other man can touch her, he believes. How old was the daughter? Her age and his family members location will decide if he is guilty. Does he have a brother there? Is the daughter at an age where she sees things but doesn't know what they are?
    Disregard alibi people who have relatives for alibis. Mexicans although sympathetic to the death of another will stand behind the guilty person to protect him because they know she's dead and nothing will bring her back.

    The husband did it. I hope they do find these people and answer to what happen to them. Hey bringing attention to there case in the long run help warns others there is alot of evil in the world and to be aware of your surroundings and you cant trust people even the ones you know!

      kim. Well written. I was wrong, you are intelligent. I apolgize. You are right and this most likely is a case of the husband telling the exwife, let's meet at the Walmart parking lot and talk. I am positive he already had her hole dug somewhere. The question is, where?

    Geez, I didn't think people could be SOOOO racist.....especially on an article talking about a 21 year old mother going missing.....wow....you are the pitiful ones. And CLEARLY the child can't be TOO old because again, the mother is 21. Yes Jim, you were wrong, however, nobody knows who did it. WHAT EVIDENCE DO YOU HAVE that says that the husband is guilty? Clearly ANYONE could have taken her...also, nothing says she's dead either. Have some faith people.

    Nancy Grace runs every one of her shows "into the ground". She repeats everything over and over and over and over for the
    whole hour......with all the "stupd sound effects". The whole hour of your time is wasted on .....cuts and splices of video and
    repeats. The same people call in......one especially "Sheeba from Illinois" with some of the most stupid questions and at times sounds wasted. If your in another room and her show is on.......the anger in her rising voice gets to you until you have to go turn it off or someone els is yelling "turn that off". The rudeness she shows her guests is a waste of your time to hear.

    I love Nancy Grace.. Although she does repeat videos that are showing, she is showing captions that might be helpful in finding the victim. I think she is doing an amazing job by showing these cold cases, everyone deserves to have justice. Many of you are being racist, this is a MOTHER we are talking about it does not matter her race. There is now another child who will now grow up without a mother and might not ever know what happened to her. I don't know if the husband did it or not but i do agree with Jim on one thing and that is that an alibi by a family member or friend is worthless, but it does not matter what race the family is, many times ANY race will stand behind a family member.
