    CA - Imperial Co., HispMale UP12364, 13-25, Apr14 - Name not found

    https://identifyus.org/en/cases/12364

    13-25 y/o
    110lbs (estimated)
    66 inches (estimated)

    Decomposing remains, deceased for about a week.

    The coordinates given are those of a canal area, right outside the Mexican/California border.

    It looks like the shirt he was wearing was made in Mexico - I saw Chapultepec near the size of the shirt (CH 34-36), and Chapultepec is essentially Mexico City or DF.

    Just judging from the socks alone, he probably had recently crossed the border, and had been on a long, long journey prior to that.

    I have almost no doubt he's from Mexico. What databases could we look at from there, if any?

    I'm testing my google skills to the max. So far, no luck on databases for missing people. Sure, they have a database similar to NCMEC but it's for kids who have been like, taken, not kids who have left voluntarily to immigrate here.

    Also, I've contacted Ms. Sutherland to see if he had any personal effects on him -- you know, many immigrants carry small pieces of paper with important phone numbers or names on them.

    Thank you for that!

    There are so many young adults likely from Mexico found in Arizona, Texas, and California that could be easily identified if a database for immigrants existed. It's really sad.

    Because this UID's jacket was "likely kid size", I would think the age range would be more 13-17. Jmo

    Yeah I wasn't sure what CH 34-36 stood for -- chest? Child? Even then, translating either of those to Spanish would be pecho and nino, so..?

    How do you make the pictures bigger?

    The pictures are at different angles so that makes it harder to spot similarities.

    I like the potential match, BUT, I wonder what his story would be in the 4 years since he's been gone. Unless... maybe he was apprehended, released back into Mexico, waited a little while and then crossed? Not sure.

    I like that scenario. And you're right, 4 years is a long time for a 13 year old. But the world is strange.

    Good enough potential match to be submitted? Or should I keep looking?

    He has no ruleouts...yet.

    A rule out is definitely better than not submitting it. You should submit it.

    I'm totally a newbie on submitting and a little nervous, but I'm going to do it.

    [Update]

    I submitted the match. Let's hope for the best!

    I was told by the case manager of Jesus Blanco that the potential match is being looked into. Hopefully an answer soon.

    NamUs now says the age range is 13 to 18. Just thought I'd throw that out there.

    I wonder what got them to change the age range.

    Here's some more on him.

    I hope that NCMEC puts this case on their site, though I don't know the requirements for it.
