Prisma Denisse Peralta Reyes went missing from the Dallas, TX area on Wednesday, April 17, 2019 around 6pm local time. On the morning of her disappearance, she made a few phone calls and headed to work where she had just recently taken a position at 123 TX Auto. Shortly after, she headed to E Bar Tex Mex for what appears to have been a very extended lunch break. After an alleged minor altercation occurs at the bar when she is cut off and asked to leave, she heads down the road back towards what could have been her home, the babysitter, or even her work for that matter.
A few minutes after leaving the bar, there are reports Prisma was involved in a road rage incident, but she didn’t stick around and wait for the cops to show up. As we understand it, she continued on her way in the same direction but ended up turning around shortly before getting on a major highway. She is later seen on surveillance video at a local apartment complex, The Olympus at Ross.
Next she is seen parking her vehicle in front of a side road on apartment complex video footage. She then runs inside the parking garage gate,following the entrance of another vehicle. There is at least one other instance of Prisma being seen inside of the apartment garage by another female. It was reported she may have also been seen by another man in or around an elevator as well. In addition to at least one other apartment video that shows Prisma while using her cell phone in front of the elevator in the parking garage.
Prisma was very active on her cell phone most of the day, up until her phone abruptly stopped making or receiving calls at 6:01pm. She has never been seen or heard from again.
This is by far, one of the hardest cases I’ve ever worked on to date. As a retired Licensed Private Investigator, I’ve seen a lot, but for some reason, this case stood out to me from day one. Although, I’ve been following this case from the very beginning, but it recently became personal when I started working directly with the family. Now that the one year anniversary of her disappearance is April 17, 2020, it’s more important than ever to figure out just what happened. With every day that passes, the family of Prisma. continues to seek answers in her disappearance.
Prisma was just 26 years old at the time of her disappearance, but now a whole year has passed. Her birthday just passed, and her whole family, especially her 7 year old son, desperately misses her. Prisma was a young, loving mother, who was trying to find her way in life. She had recently started a new job and was attempting to cut ties with those who didn’t seem to fit into her future. Although we all know, not all ties are easily broken, right? Nonetheless, Prisma fought for those she loved.
While talking with friends and family, it’s pretty clear and well known that Prisma may have also gotten wrapped up with some not so kind and genuine people along the way. I think that’s partially why I became so invested in this case. Prisma’s case also seemingly just started to disappear from the public eye. Was it because of who people thought might be involved as they’re said to be quote on quote dangerous? And, who are they? Was it because of her past? Well, I hate to tell you, that we all have skeletons in our closet, right?
As far as anyone knew, the day Prisma went missing started just like any other day. Unfortunately, that just wasn’t the case. What all actually happened that Wednesday, is still unknown to the public at this time. Although we have been able to obtain some solid, concrete, pieces of this puzzle.
We’ve also tried to obtain the case file for this case, but have since been denied access to everything, except for FIVE pages. Those FIVE pages contain the Officer Incident Report, which took months to recover. In fact, we started the Freedom of Information Act Request on January 29, 2020. We were officially denied the rest of the file April 2, 2020 and received word just this past Friday, April 10, 2020.
Now, some ask why we even thought obtaining the file was possible. Well, honestly, I didn’t. Having experience in my fair share of Public Records Requests of ALL sorts, I honestly just put in the request for the hell of it. I wanted to see what the Police Department might be willing to release to us, a year later, especially since working with her step-father, Dan Fuchs. But that’s neither here nor there. I submitted the request and was expecting an instant denial. To my surprise, I received an estimate for her file costing $529.60. At the date of this estimate and the re-issue of the estimate, there were a minimum of 1 body cam recording, 1,266 pages, 2 CD’s and 44 DVD’s in her case file.
Now we know the Mesquite Police Department has quite the file for Prisma’s disappearance. Was her disappearance a part of something larger? Are they just missing something when it comes to making an arrest, in at the very least, her disappearance? They must know something with all of that information, right?
Her family and I immediately went to work trying to obtain this file. In the meantime, we continued to pursue every avenue, interview and lead we could obtain. So, even without all of this evidence and the case file the Mesquite PD has, we started our own. I never anticipated we would get the whole file due to it being an open case, but we were never advised otherwise so we did what we were told to do. I got to work on a Go Fund Me and raised the funds with the help of her family, friends and online community of our Find Prisma Facebook Page and Group.
Fast forward to today and we now have quite the file ourselves, even without PD.
Although we may be lacking a few major key pieces, including Prisma. Through this podcast, you’ll be given a very detailed look at her case over the next several months. Our goal of this podcast is to help Find Prisma. We hope to raise awareness that Prisma is still missing, in addition to generating new leads in regards to her case. New episodes will be released as we are able to release information, so stay tuned.
