MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. – Police are asking the public’s help as they search for a 23-year-old woman who went missing after attending the Rolling Loud Miami hip-hop festival Saturday at Hard Rock Stadium.

Miami Gardens detectives say Ashley Espinoza-Sanchez stands 5-foot-2 and weighs 130 pounds with brown eyes and brown hair.

Espinoza-Sanchez was seen wearing a black-and-red romper and white Vans sneakers at the music festival, investigators say.

Detectives provided new information Thursday, saying Espinoza-Sanchez was seen on surveillance video Monday at the lost and found at Hard Rock Stadium.

“Video shows she was in the company of an unknown black male, 5′10″ – 6′0″, thin build, wearing long dark pants, black T-shirt, red shirt tied around waist, dark sneakers, and a light-colored hat,” Miami Gardens police said in an updated news release. “The video also shows Ms. Espinoza-Sanchez was wearing the same romper from Saturday. However, instead of sneakers she was wearing long black socks with sandals that appeared too large for her feet. Video shows Ms. Espinoza-Sanchez and the black male appear to part ways on foot in opposite directions. She was last seen walking towards parking lot #18. It is possible Ms. Espinoza-Sanchez is still in the area.”

Local 10 News spoke with a cousin of Espinoza-Sanchez, who says she drove down from Tallahassee for the concert with a friend.

The cousin says Espinoza-Sanchez suffers from a bipolar disorder, for which she takes medication.

Anyone with information is asked to call Detective J. Rodriguez at 305-474-1615.
