Via Facebook

April 17, 2017 (San Diego). Hugo Castro, an activist with the San Diego Border Angels, went missing in the state of Mexico on April 13. This is near Mexico City. According to Panorama Virtual the Mexican Federal police did search the site, around kilometer 37 of the highway between Mexico City and  Puebla.

They also asked the owners of several fast food restaurants if they had seen him. These are located about 200 meters from where Castro recorded the Facebook live video asking for help.

He was en route to the southern state of Michoacán, to participate in a convoy of Central American migrants to the United States border. He is also a United States citizen and the US Consulate in Tijuana has been informed.

The group Border Angels works for the rights of migrants. In the video, the activist speaks that organized crime was after him. He reportedly did not trust Mexican police to ask for help. The Border Angels have provided food and water for abandoned migrants in the desert. Their latest project is to take care of Haitian refugees who wanted to come to the United States but now live in Tijuana in legal limbo.
