Eighteen-year-old Rudy Morales went missing days ago and his family and the police had issued a missing person’s bulletin.

“On the thirtieth of March around two p.m., Victoria Morales visited the San Ignacio police station and reported that her son, one Rudy Morales, eighteen years labourer of a Kontiki address in San Ignacio, left home en route to Benque Viejo to attend a party. Since then, he has not returned home. He is of Hispanic decent; of about five feet six inches in height and slim built. We followed several leads and today we learnt that he was in Arenal Belize, but on police arrival, they were able to confirm that he was there, but had left there sometime this morning. We also spoke to the family who confirmed that someone communicated with them by phone that yes indeed he was in Arenal. So we are still following on this information to see whether or not he will arrive home.”
