Details of Disappearance
Martin was last seen leaving the Fairbanks Inn in the 1700 block of west Fairbanks Avenue in Orlando, Florida at 9:30 p.m. on May 4, 1991. She had played pool there with a man and left with him afterwards. She has never been heard from again. A friend reported her missing two days later, after she didn't show up for work at Anything Plastic in Winter Park, Florida.

A sketch of Martin's companion is posted with this case summary. He was between 40 and 45 years old in 1991, approximately 6'2 in his cowboy boots, and 200 pounds. He had graying brown hair, a beard and a mustache. He had a tattoo on his arm, a broken nose and decayed or missing teeth.

The man drove a black 1988 Kenworth tractor-trailer with a sleeper cab and a wind spoiler. The trailer was possibly silver or white, and appeared to be old. The man was supposedly from Texas. He was wearing cowboy boots, a black cowboy hat, an armadillo stickpin, and a thick belt with a large oval buckle. He has never been identified. He is not being called a suspect in Martin's case, but is being sought for questioning.

Martin's family believes she met with foul play, because it's uncharacteristic of her to leave without warning and she left all her belongings behind at her apartment. Police also believe foul play was involved in her case. Her disappearance remains unsolved.

Gene Saucer is looking for a toothless cowboy - a truck driver from Texas who left a Winter Park bar with his daughter three weeks ago. She hasn't been heard from since.

A retired Air Force pilot and Realtor, Saucer has turned detective since her disappearance, talking to more than 50 people.

The clues he has unearthed point to a man with a broken nose, weathered skin, decayed or missing teeth, and a tattoo on his arm. Now Saucer is relying on the kindness of strangers to post fliers with a photograph of his daughter and a description of the cowboy, hoping someone will recognize them and phone police.

Saucer, almost 70, has served in three wars. But it's been an uphill battle trying to find his missing daughter, Roxanne Martin.

Saucer said he suspects foul play because it is unlike his daughter to disappear without calling her parents or friends. The woman took no belongings from her Orlando apartment.

Orange County
Sheriff's Detective Jerry Geier emphasized that the truck driver is only wanted for questioning. The tall trucker who called himself Randy or David is the only link police have to the missing 37-year-old woman.

Martin, who works at Anything Plastic in Winter Park, and the man left the Fairbanks Inn at about 9:30 p.m. May 4 in a shiny black 1988 Kenworth tractor with a sleeper cab and wind spoiler. The trailer appeared old and may be silver or white, witnesses said.

"We're making every effort to find this guy," said Saucer. "If he's still in Florida, we should be able to run him down."

Saucer talked to at least 50 people who spoke with or saw the man at the Fairbanks Inn. A friend of Martin's printed thousands of fliers for free and Saucer has persuaded Orlando truck stops to pass them out.

He also asked the state Department of Transportation to post them at weigh stations throughout the state.

People Saucer talked to said the man looks looks 40 to 45 years old, weighs 200 pounds and is 6 feet 2 inches in his cowboy boots. He has graying brown hair, a beard and a mustache.
The man wore an armadillo stick pin on the front of his black cowboy hat and a thick belt with a big oval buckle.

Martin is 5 feet 4 inches, 155 pounds, with short red-brown hair. She wears glasses and has a long scar on her left arm.

Anyone with information on Martin or the trucker can call Orange County Sheriff's detectives at 407-657-2500.

What has become of the search for Roxanne Martin, who disappeared from a Winter Park bar with a trucker?

Martin's parents have heard nothing from their daughter. Martin was 37 when she left the Fairbanks Inn on May 4, 1991, with a toothless man who wore a black cowboy hat and boots.

Her father, Gene Saucer of Orlando, interviewed more than 60 people who saw the man at the bar, but none knew him. Saucer also passed out thousands of fliers at truck stops and weigh stations. But possible sightings all over the country proved fruitless. Authorities suspect foul play.

Martin, who left with no belongings, is 5 feet 4 inches, 155 pounds, with short red-brown hair. She a long scar on her left arm.
