CIBOLA COUNTY — The Cibola County Sheriff’s Office is searching for a woman who has not been seen since June 12.

Deputies from the department have been looking for Elaine Vigil, 54, of San Rafael.

Cibola County Sheriff Tony Mace says the department has searched extensively in a three-mile radius between her home, her ex-husband’s home and her son’s home to no avail.

“We do not believe foul play is involved in any of this,” Mace said.

Mace said there have been no leads on the case as of June 16.

“We’ve brought search dogs, cadaver dogs, we’ve used drones a Global Positioning System tracker, 20 to 30 people on foot, horseback, and ATV’s,” Mace said.

The department is asking people to keep an eye out for Vigil. An alert has been issued and she is entered into the National Crime Information Center, or NCIC, database.

Vigil is 5’ 6”, approximately 120 pounds with brown eyes. She was last seen wearing Capri spandex pants and a light-grayish-green tank top.

If you know the whereabouts of Vigil, you are asked to call the Cibola County Sheriff’s Office dispatch at (505) 287-9476.
