MP of the week: Benito Velasquez

Hi all. I went to visit my dad for a few days. I’m back now. This week’s featured MP is Benito Ricardo Velasquez. He disappeared mysteriously with his little son Jose in January 1999.

I have no details on this father and son’s disappearance. Jose isn’t on the NCMEC, and NamUs, for some reason, only has Benito listed and doesn’t tell me anything I don’t already know. The city they vanished from, Calexico, California, is right smack on the Mexican border and I wonder if whatever happened to this pair happened in Mexico.
