This week’s featured missing person is Jason Richard Macias, who disappeared from El Paso, Texas on August 30, 2011, at the age of 23. He left all his belongings behind, including his car, but nothing has been said about his passport, which probably would have needed if he was going to cross the border into Mexico. Macias was a frequent traveler to that country, but I don’t know if he went there after he disappeared.
If he is still alive, Macias would be 28 today. He’s quite tall — six foot five — and has the name “Martha” tattooed on his arm.
I live in Texas. All you need to cross the border into Mexico (driving or walking) is a Texas drivers license. Same to get back into the USA. Jason might not have had a passport. If he died in Juarez (which was one of the most dangerous cities in the world when he disappeared), his body is probably in a pauper’s grave, if it was even found.
Forgive me for my poor wording, I’m not so great at this commenting thing..
I was going to comment something similar to the previous comment. I’ve lived in El Paso all my life. If he crossed into Mexico, he almost certainly wouldn’t have needed a passport. He may have needed it to come back, but even that is iffy. It is “requirement” to have a passport to return, but I know many people who have and still cross back and forth without. It’s just much more convenient..
