[Vicky] And welcome back to Victims of the Disappearance. Lila Rodriguez is a first generation Mexican-American born in the heart of East Los Angeles. Her parents, Teresa and Jose Maria Rodriguez, who are missing as well, have lovingly stood behind her through her entire career.
[Gigi] She can't be missing. She's not missing. Jeff, she did not disappear.
[Jeff] I know, it's hard to accept.
[Gigi] No, she's not Mexican!
[Jeff] Yes, I know: she's a reporter.
[Gigi] No, listen to me. You don't understand. There's no reason for her to be missing. There's no way that she would disappear.
[Jeff] I know you're upset. We're all upset. But what you're saying makes no sense.
[Vicky] Is this confirmed? A ray of hope. Our Lila Rodriguez has been found at the local hospital. She's in intensive care. We'll bring you full coverage ...
[Jeff] What do you want to do with this? It's your call.
[Newsperson] It happened to the Mayans. They disappeared without a trace. Today we are here to explore a highly unconventional explanation. Dr. Takeshi.
