According to the spokesman for the National Police, Colonel Frank Durán, of the 346 people reported missing during 2017, 238 have been found, 25 bodies were discovered and there are still 83 who have not been located.
Duran went on to say that of the 83 supposedly still missing, it is very possible they were found but that fact was not reported to the Police.
He provided these statistics during questioning from the press about the investigation into the disappearance of Rosa Mora, who went missing in November 2017, and so far has not been found. Duran said that the National Police continues to work hard to solve the case. A new protocol has been implemented that will broaden the scope of investigations of missing persons and prioritize engaging of family members of those who had disappeared.
Rosa Maria Mora, aged 65, left without her mobile phone from her home in the Honduras sector of the National District on 23 November 2017, and has not been seen since. Anyone with any information as to her whereabouts is asked to call 809-889-2112, 809-710-08831 or 849-865-4806.
