Details of Disappearance Cecilia was last seen at her residence in the 5600 block of Southwick Road in the west side of San Antonio, Texas. Her husband, Reyes Gallegos, called 911 from their home on the morning of July 8 to say they had gotten into an argument about infidelity and she had cut him with a knife. When police arrived on the scene, he had visible injuries to his face, a large scratch mark on his chest consistent with fingernails, and a superficial cut on his right index finger.
Cecilia wasn't there; Reyes said she'd told him she was leaving the family and left with an unidentified man who had been waiting outside in a car. She has never been heard from again. She left all her belongings behind, including her cellular phone and both the couple's vehicles. Her credit cards have not been used since she went missing.
The family's children between the ages of six and fourteen were home when Cecilia arrived home that day, and heard their parents arguing. One of the children said she heard screaming and covered her ears to block out the side. Reyes made the children stay in their bedroom. The week after their mother went missing, child protective authorities removed them from Reyes's care and placed them in the custody of Cecilia's sister.
The day after Reyes was arrested on the false report charge, he was arrested a second time for assault causing bodily injury. This charge was unrelated to Cecilia's disappearance; Reyes allegedly punched a male friend in the face on June 22, a few weeks before his wife went missing.
Reyes pleaded guilty to filing a false report and was sentenced to six months in jail, with credit for time served awaiting trial. The assault case was dismissed in January 2020 because a key witness did not appear in court to testify.
According to Cecilia's sister, Cecilia and her husband were having marital problems and Cecilia had called her brother to say she was afraid something bad was going to happen to her. She was saving money because she wanted to move out and get an alarm system for her new residence, as she was concerned about her personal safety. Cecilia also told a friend that Reyes was violent and he should be questioned if she were to go missing. Cecilia's sister stated Reyes was controlling and wouldn't let people visit his wife. The family's neighbors stated they kept to themselves, even locking their gate to keep people out of their yard.
Reyes has not been charged in connection with Cecilia's disappearance. Her family doesn't believe she would have abandoned her children, and they believe she is dead. Her disappearance remains unsolved and foul play is suspected.
