Two people who knew Rogers notified police on December 7, 2023 and said she was missing and that she had not been seen or heard from in a couple of days. That’s when police started their investigation.
The Criminal Apprehension Team (CAT), made up members of the FBI, LVMPD, Henderson and North Las Vegas Police Departments arrested two people in connection with Marayna Rogers disappearance.
