Parents of missing youth in Paracho cry for help

Morelia, Mich. – Parents of the three young people who disappeared weeks ago in the capital travelled to Paracho Michoacan, to demand help from the authorities in Michoacan to find their children. The relatives of the victims were accompanied by the national leader of the Movimiento Ciudadano, senator Luis Walton.

The parents requested that their children be returned. Neither they nor the Movimiento Ciudadano leader can think of any reason why the young activists may have been deprived of their liberty.

“We passionately plead for mercy from the people who have kidnapped our children. Return them to us, our children have done nothing wrong, our children have not harmed anyone. Their only sin was to deliver workshops for children at the invitation of the Paracho Centre for Arts and Culture. We ask for mercy,” said one of the mothers of the missing young people.

It is known that on the 22nd of July, two boys and a girl named Luis Enrique Castañeda Nava, Diego Antonio Maldonado and Ana Belen Sanchez Mayorga attended the International Balloon Festival of Cantoya, held in the town of Paracho. Nothing more is known about their fate other than that they were apparently taken by gunmen from Hotel Santa Fe.

Another one of the mothers, Alicia Guadalupe Nava Cruz, said she does not care who the captors are, is not seeking punishment of the guilty party. All she wants is that they be returned alive because they are so young as well as good students.

“The president should support Paracho in finding them, as they were called to come and give a workshop for children. If they had not come to Michoacan, this would not have happened.”

Senator Walton said that he does not mean to blame any authority of Michoacan, in any level of government, but seeks an absolute cooperation of all levels because so far, there have not been any leads into the investigation of this case.

“The authorities have not investigated this case, and the kidnappers have not tried to contact the family members for ransom. We are calling on governments to fulfill their legal responsibilities and work to find the missing youth.”

The National Movimiento Ciudadano leader said his presence in the capital of Michoacan is based on the solidarity of the party what with the disappearance of one of the youths, who is a communications specialist by profession and worked as a broadcaster for the actions of this political institution, while the other two youths are devoted to psychology.

“If you do not return alive our world will be plunged into darkness and all hope will be lost for eternity,” said a relative.
