Locals informed the firefighters and State Police, who arrived in the community and confirmed the finding in the cenote.

The firefighters were prepared with harness and ropes and descended to rescue the body, which was complicated because even though the cenote is open there is no way to hold on to any point.

Shortly thereafter, personnel from the Public Prosecutor’s Office arrived to carry out the corresponding procedures.

The family confirmed that the body found in the cenote was that of the missing girl.
