Four out of 10 missing people in Quintana Roo are still unlocated

During the first quarter of this year, 289 reports of disappearances were officially registered in the state.

Only six out of 10 people reported missing so far this year have been located. 82% of them made it alive, while the rest could only be recovered their bodies, most of the time with traces of violence.

The latest report from the Office of the General Directorate of the Commission for the Search for Persons of the State of Quintana Roo indicates that the trend in the first quarter of this year is for an increase in the number of disappearances.

In the first month of this year, 82 families appeared before the State Attorney General’s Office (FGE) to file an act for a relative who had not returned home. Of this number, 37 people were found.

By February the number shot up to 102. In that period, the State Attorney General’s Office reported that most of these people left their homes of their own free will, removing 71 from the list of search files.

By March the number increased to 105, while those located dropped to 67.

In total, there were 289 reports of disappearances in the state. Of these, 175 were located.

It should be noted that there was a greater number of males lost, 164 in total, against 125 females.

As for the people located, 86 were women, half of whom are minors, and 89 were men.

Due to the nature of the operational search functions carried out by the Commission, the state in which they were found was not reported in detail, although data from the State Attorney General’s Office obtained through Transparency reveal that in this first quarter, 27 people were found dead, of which 64% had traces of violence.

One of the strategies implemented by the authority in Quintana Roo is the institutionalization of search operations on Saturdays, each week, in different parts of the state geography. The most recent occurred in the Sergio Butrón Casas area, on the banks of the Río Hondo.
