A Parkland man is cooperating with detectives after his wife went missing Wednesday, the Broward Sheriff’s Office said, but the woman’s mother said she did not hear of the disappearance until Monday.
“I did not know my daughter was missing,” a distraught Elvira Sciarra said from her New Port Richey home. “I’d like to know why [son-in-law Neil Rosen] did not call me to tell me my daughter is missing.”
The disappearance is considered suspicious, but there is no suspect or person of interest at this time, sheriff’s spokesman Mike Jachles said.

“What we have is a missing woman who is endangered,” he said.
Rosann DiFiore-Rosen, 42, was last seen around 11 p.m. Wednesday in bed at the couple’s Heron Bay home, her husband told detectives. When he woke up around 8 a.m., she was gone. He told investigators he assumed that she left for her job. She is a paralegal in Fort Lauderdale.
Neil Rosen told detectives he grew concerned around 9:30 a.m., when his wife sent him a text message threatening to harm herself. Neil Rosen called the sheriff’s office that same day, officials said.
Sciarra, 60, said she has been alienated from her daughter for about 14 years. They do not talk on the phone, but exchanged emails through DiFiore-Rosen’s work account. Their most recent exchange was a few weeks ago, the mother said.
“I keep calling her office and emailing her office, but there’s no answer,” Sciarra said, crying. “Why is there no answer? Dear God.” She said Neil Rosen was unaware she emailed with her daughter, but he knew how to contact Sciarra.
“He can if he wants to, but he doesn’t want to,” she said. “If I called him, he would probably curse me out.”
In 1992, Rosen was acquitted in the 1991 death of girlfriend Michelle Davis in Weston, but four months later was convicted of aggravated stalking for threatening ex-wife Sheri Lynn Garner, court records showed.
“He’s a mean man,” Sciarra said.
Attempts to contact Neil Rosen and his attorney by phone and email were unsuccessful.
DiFiore-Rosen is described as 5-foot-2 and 92 pounds. She may be driving her gray 2013 Lexus IS250 with Florida license plate BUB-C97, officials said.
