A popular Las Vegas dancer missing for more than a week sent an ominous text message to her mother just days before she disappeared, saying family should contact her ex-boyfriend "in case there is ever an emergency with me," the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

Debora "Debbie" Flores Narvaez, 31, a cast member of Luxor's "Fantasy" show, disappeared after leaving her Las Vegas home at approximately 7 p.m. on Dec. 12.

The woman's mother, Elise Narvaez, reportedly told the newspaper that her daughter sent a text message Dec. 1, saying: "In case there is ever an emergency with me, contact (Jason) Blu Griffith in Vegas. My ex-boyfriend. Not my best friend."

When Narvaez asked her daughter what she meant, the young woman told her to keep it for her records, according to the newspaper.

Investigators found the woman's car -- a maroon 1997 four-door Chevrolet Prism -- abandoned in a northeast Las Vegas neighborhood on Thursday. Family members told that the car's Maryland license plates had been removed.

Flores Narvaez, who was born in Puerto Rico and lived with her family in Baltimore, Md., relocated to Las Vegas two years ago to pursue a dancing career. She worked as an "ambassador" for the Washington Redskins Cheerleaders in 2007 and 2008, according to a team spokesman, and she once auditioned for the hit series, "So You Think You Can Dance." Her MySpace profile says that she holds advanced degrees in law and business.

Flores Narvaez was last seen Dec. 12 leaving her home to visit her ex-boyfriend, identified by police and family members as Jason "Blu" Griffith. The woman was reported missing two days later by one of her roommates after she failed to show up for rehearsal.

Griffith, who is scheduled to appear in court Tuesday for a felony arraignment, was arrested in October for violence and coercion against the dancer, according to a police report.

Flores Narvaez told police she had been dating Griffith for a year and was pregnant with his child at the time of the incident, reports. Griffith allegedly pulled the dancer's hair and kicked her. Police reportedly retrieved a chunk of hair at the scene and said the woman had bruises on both of her legs.

Celeste Flores, the woman's sister, told that Griffith, a Las Vegas dancer, has been uncooperative in providing the family with detailed information.

"I am the only one out here on behalf of my family and he doesn't want to sit down and talk to me," Flores said. "There are many inconsistencies."

Flores said Griffith told her in a phone conversation last week that the young woman visited his home around 7:30 p.m. on Dec. 12, and that the two spoke briefly at his front door.

"He told me that she said she’s been depressed for the past couple of days because it was the holidays and she wasn’t around her family," Flores said.

"He also said she was sleeping in her car the past couple of nights," which Flores said was "unlike" her sister.

"Debbie was kind of private when it came to her personal life," Flores added, "but I understand from almost all of her friends that her relationship with Blu made her upset a lot."

Griffith could not be reached for comment when contacted Sunday by

A spokesman with the Las Vegas Police Department said Monday that investigators are "actively pursuing leads in the case" and that no suspects have been detained so far.

Flores Narvaez is described as Hispanic, 5-foot-5 and weighing 120 pounds. She has brown hair and brown eyes.

Investigators are urging anyone with information on her whereabouts to contact the Las Vegas Police Department at 702-828-2907.
