Reward to Return 3 Months’ Missing Erin Linarez

Erin Linarez

In May, thirty-two-year-old Erin Linarez left his family home on the island of Ambergris Caye to voluntarily check himself into the REMAR rehabilitation center in Bullet Tree Village. Linarez, battling alcoholism, checked himself out in the early hours of the following morning. He left behind his cell and hasn’t been seen or heard from since. A phone call to his mother Rose Marie a few days afterward left her scared but neither police in Cayo or Melchor, Guatemala, have been able to trace Erin. His mom returned to our studios today announcing a reward of two thousand five hundred dollars for information leading to his safe return.



“In all of that intervening time has there been, because you said that you got a phone call that sounded like somebody was in trouble; did anything come of that?”

“No. Nothing at all.”



“Nothing at all?”


Rose Marie Linarez

“Nothing at all; I took that report to police station and I got back nothing.”



“So there’s nothing from Cayo police; I understand Melchor police did a search though?”


Rose Marie Linarez

“We are still searching; we have already searched in Guatemala – in Melchor, Flores; Benque, the entire Bullet Tree, all the villages around, and we have not heard or see anything about him.”



“Absolutely nothing? Nothing from friends?”


Rose Marie Linarez

“Nobody see, nobody hear anything about his whereabouts. But as a mother, I have my hope and I don’t want to give up. I am still hoping to hear or to see something. If somebody out there knows anything, his whereabouts or information leading to his whereabouts, we the family are giving a reward to whosoever can come up with information about him. I feel like it’s going too long now.”


Linarez is of East Indian descent and stands about five feet tall. He was last seen in a green shirt, Hawaiian pants and slippers, and has a tattoo with his son’s name and another tattoo on his chest. If you have any information on the whereabouts of Erin Linarez, you are asked to contact the Police or you can reach his family at the following numbers: 660-0506.
