Ten years ago, yesterday

On February 4, 2003 — a decade ago, plus one day — Sofia Lucerno Juarez vanished from Kennewick, Washington. She appears to have been abducted, but there were no witnesses or anything and it looks like the police aren’t any closer to solving her case than they were the day after she disappeared.

Sofia was four years and 364 days old when she disappeared. Today would be her fifteenth birthday.

She had no father, and her mother died tragically young — just 26 — four years ago. But she’s got at least one half-sibling, and extended family looking for her still.

I hope she comes home this year, one way or another, but I’m not counting on it.

    Strange her mum died so young of “natural causes”. Doesn’t make sense, but makes me believe that dying from a broken heart could be possible. So sad for all involved.

      I don’t know what the natural causes were, though I saw a picture of her and she was quite obese so it may have been diabetes or heart trouble or something of that nature.
