Magdiel Ceas

Thirty-year-old Magdiel Ceas, a Belizean laborer of San Jose Village in the Orange Walk District has been charged with a criminal offense after it was discovered that he was sexually involved with a missing teenager.  While the minor has since been located, it is being reported that Ceas had unlawful sexual intercourse with her.  Assistant Commissioner of Police Joseph Myvett shares additional details.

“In reference to a fifteen-year-old missing child, police have since arrested and charged Magdiel Ceas, thirty-years-old of San Luis Village, Orange Walk District for the crime of unlawful sexual intercourse.”

“Sir, if I could ask in relation to that case, there are several females right now, I think another one was just reported missing, I think she may have been found in Benque Viejo.  When these things happen, a lot of times I know we stereotype these girls but they are with male persons and the police have to use resources to go and find them, to go and search for them all over the place.  Is there any charge that can be levied against them, against their parents, anything like that?”


ACP Joseph Myvett

“Well at this point in time no, because in most cases it is the parents who report these persons missing.”
