National Hispanic Heritage Month: Mariah Carter

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 Mariah Chavez Carter, a biracial Hispanic and Caucasian girl who disappeared from Biscoe, North Carolina on October 8, 2001. She was almost two months old.

Mariah was the victim of a family abduction; her non-custodial mother, Porfria Salmeron Chavez, took her, possibly to Mexico. There’s a warrant out for Chavez’s arrest, although for some reason it wasn’t issued until six years later.

Mariah would be seventeen today. She may not even realize she is a missing child.

    There are increment for cases Currently Opened, but why there is no case update since Oct. 3?

      Because all my time has been spent adding those old resolved cases into the system. 13 years worth of cases.

    Meaghan, just admit you can’t do all this work while removing carpet. Also, you are on medications and have dealt with some health issues. You are not Super Girl, but just trying to slowly work up to Wonder Woman. Plus you just celebrated a birthday. So let those complainers chill out.

    Janny, thanks for supporting my comment. Some need to remember that Meaghan is just one person keeping us on are toes searching for those still missing, by keeping them front and center. At the same time trying to update us about the cases that have been resolved. Not an easy task.

    I have from digging up weeds to raking leaves, with a break because of rain, which we are getting what did not get for weeks.

      I got a TON of those old resolved cases put up today. Then helped M with the house when he got home. As with most home improvement projects this is going to be much better when complete, but a huge pain for the duration.

      I really appreciate your comment too, Patrick. People ask a lot of me and I try to give, but can’t always.
