Tijuana, BC - Magaly Salazar Bravo, the young woman who was reported missing by her family on September 1, was found alive, said Baja California Justice Prosecutor Rommel Moreno.
Her friends and family members who filed a complaint with CAPEA, the Attorney General division for locating absent or missing persons, reported the disappearance of the 24-year-old girl extensively on Facebook and other social networks.
Authorities said the inquiry to establish her whereabouts continues, and although they have some information, the State Prosecutor chose not to reveal any.
"I don't know if she was hiding," said Moreno Manjarrez who ensures Magaly has been seen outside the State and that they are following the trail of information. He added that you cannot ignore the illegal deprivation of liberty, but everything indicates that she is alive, which has been reported but he did not want to elaborate.
One information sources from detectives, is that Magaly is gone voluntarily and hidden from her family for emotional issues, however the detectives spoke under the condition of unanimity. They expressed a preference to exhaust all possibilities before making conjectures.
"Just like the family and society, the Attorney General wants to find her," said Rommel Moreno. http://www.tijuanapress.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=7604:magaly-sigue-viva-pgje&catid=1:locales&Itemid=50
