National Hispanic Heritage Month: Jorge Acosta

In honor of National Hispanic Heritage Month I’m featuring a Hispanic missing person every day from September 15 to October 15. Today’s case is Jorge Acosta, a twelve-year-old boy who disappeared on November 1, 1992 from Los Angeles, California.

I’ve wondered about Jorge’s case for a long time because he’s always been listed as a runaway, and continues to be listed as such, but he was only twelve years old, and he’s been gone for 25 years now. That is very unusual.

I wish I knew more details about his disappearance. If he’s still alive, Jorge would now be 38 years old.
