Search continues for missing women on Tohono O'odham land

Migrant women missing, last seen on Tohono O'odham tribal land

Michael Marizco's Border Reporter:
This is the most recent information I’ve received on the two women who went missing Sept. 1.
A search is continuing for Erika Zepeda Caballero (left) and Estela Juárez Martínez, who disappeared more than two weeks ago in the Arizona desert. Both women are from Puebla, they share the same birthday, today in fact, and are 21 years old.
According to their friend, Amandine Poirson, who’s keeping me updated, the two women slipped through the Tohono O’odham Indian Reservation some time in late August and last had contact with familymembers on Sept. 1.
Judging from the map of their entry, it appears they crossed near the San Miguel Gate at Cochi Feo. That’s Nacho Paez territory. Apparently, they managed to make it north of Gu Vo and were somewhere southeast of Hickiwan when they called the last time.
