It was Stephany's older brother Enrique Flores who received a phone call from their father saying Stephany had not come home. Enrique called all his sister's friends and then starting calling the police.
Surveillance video of Stephany Flores and Joran Van Der Sloot entering his hotel room and video has been shown of Flores sitting next to Van Der Sloot in the casino hotel:
"At first, it was a relief because I saw her and that gave me hope," Enrique Flores said. "The people at the hotel told us, 'Yeah, she was with this guy. He seemed nice. He looked like Brad Pitt.'"
It was 5:16am on May 30 when Van Der Sloot entered the room with Flores and about three hours and 20 minutes later he left the hotel by himself and told the staff not to bother 'his girl' according to CNN.
Stephany Flores' father is Ricardo Flores, a former race car driver and he has four sons aside from Stephany.
The Flores family did not know about Joran Van Der Sloot's alleged past with Natalee Holloway and they described their shock when they first typed his name in to Google.
"They gave us his social security number and his name," the brother told CNN. "We came back home and searched his name on the Internet. I cannot tell you the shock we felt."
"My wife typed 'Joran van der Sloot' into Google and started screaming for me to see," Enrique Flores told CNN on Sunday. "I couldn't believe it. How could it be that guy?"
Enrique Flores describes his sister as a kind and friendly woman who was always nice to everyone. He thinks that she probably had no idea about who Van Der Sloot was or what he may be capable of doing.
"My sister was the only girl in our house, the queen of our family," he continued. "What she wanted, she got. She loved to play soccer" and would organize matches with her friends in the family's backyard.
She was studying business administration at the University of Lima and worked in her family's event-promotion business managing the merchandising.
Police are now stating that Flores may have killed by a tennis racquet found in the room.
Joran Van Der Sloot is now in custody in Peru undergoing questioning.
