I decided to look through the Washington MP database and then try Googling the names so I might be able to find associated pictures (since the database has practically none) and post them on Charley. Anyway, I found something very interesting: Regina Arias-Ibal, missing since November 26, 2001.

What’s interesting is that Regina is the sister-in-law of Guadalupe Castro and aunt to Guadalupe’s daughter, Aqueda Arias, who have also been missing since November 26, 2001. This board post, a copy of a now-defunct (and badly written, apparently) article, notes the following:

Agueda Elizabeth “Lizzie” Arias (Longview) a 7-year-old female and Guadalupe Barajas Castro (Arias), Agueda’s 23-year-old mother were last scene on November 11, 2002 in the company of 21-year-old Gregorio Arias-Ibala and Gregorio’s 20-year-old sister Regina Arias-Ibal, both Mexican Nationals. Gregorio is Guadalupe’s estranged husband and father of Lizzie who was on an impromptu visit from San Jacinto, CA. The group were last seen leaving Longview, WA to go cloths shopping for Lizzie in Portland, OR in a borrowed 1995 Jeep Cherokee. On 11-27-02, the vehicle was found abandoned in Kerman, CA. and no one has seen or heard from Guadalupe or Lizzie since. Confirmed information is that Gregorio had a hand gun with him during this visit and was upset over the possibility that Guadalupe had been involved with another man while they were separated.

I have NEVER heard anything before about Regina having disappeared as well. An awfully strange omission. What gives?

    Maybe the police know something there not releasing to the public. They may believe Regina and Gregorio are involved with the disappearances. The police may have also lost the files on her if they started one at all. I am a fan of police and will stick up for them in most situations, but there are times that they not only make mistakes they miss the boat completely and bungle an investigation entirely.

    The dates seem off somehow. 2001 and 2002?

    I agree with Jamie. Maybe they were trying to keep it quiet for some reason, right along with a lot of those cases you read about “not releasing info” and all that. However, I’ve been doing some backtracking lately and in some of the VERY cold cases, IF they ever get anyone, it might be better now to get out some other info. At least get the victim’s ided or see if it can be linked to another area.

    Hi, I was reading this story on reddit (all real names are changed in the story). after reading about it I then read about agueda arias age 3 going missing in 2001. Also a Jose Daniel Castro, could this be her brother that us mentioned in this story on reddit ???
    Please click on the link below and see what you think ….. if Guadalupe Castro (missing mother of missing child Elizabeth agueda arias age 3) was about 8 or 9 month pregnant at the time she went missing in 2001, this may be the explanation of the girl in the story on reddit, about her younger brother : who could well be Jose Daniel Castro.
