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 Miriam Daniela Guillen, who disappeared from Arleta, California on September 3, 2014, at the age of sixteen. She’s classified as a runaway.
Miriam’s hair was dyed blonde and cut in a mohawk at the time of her disappearance, and she has facial piercings, gauged ears and numerous tattoos. Her age-progression on her NCMEC poster shows what two of the tattoos are meant to look like: the spiderweb on her shoulder, and “HORROR” in large black letters on her upper chest. A pretty distinctive appearance.
Miriam is probably still alive, though she doesn’t seem to have surfaced on the radar in the past five years. She would be 21 today.
I just looked at her ears in her photographs and I got the impression that her earlobes were stretched for that plug jewelry. I could be wrong, but it kind of looks like that.
