3 persons missing; have you seen them?

Nicole Figueroa

Three persons, two females and one male, have gone missing since the start of this past weekend and the families have been desperately trying to locate them. The first was sixteen year old David Choc who left his home in Armenia Village, Cayo and has not been seen since. His father, Miguel Choc, notified authorities of his missing child on Friday, May fourth. Three days later, another distraught mother contacted police that her daughter, eighteen year old Saint Catherine Academy student, Angelica Escalante, could not be found. According to Irma Escalante, Angelica left their home in the Sand Hill Village en route to school on Monday morning and has not returned. But today, an emotional mother came to our studios with the tale of her missing daughter. Lesa (Lisa) Baizar says that her fifteen year old daughter, Nicole Figueroa has been missing since Sunday. Even though Nicole had run away from home several times before, Baizar says it has never been for more than a day. The Gwen Lizarraga High School student and resident of Petticoat Alley was last seen by her mother around three-fifteen on Sunday evening when she went to do her hair at one of her friend’s house.
