    Honduras - Maria Alvarado, 19, & Sofia Trinidad, 23, Santa Barbara, 13 Nov 2014

    Police are hunting for a missing beauty queen due to fly to London later this week for Miss World 2014.
    Reigning Miss Honduras Maria Jose Alvarado, 19, vanished with her sister Sofia after a friend's birthday party in their home town of Santa Barbara, last Thursday.
    Police have said the girls' disappearance is not being treated as a crime, but today it emerged four people, including her sister's boyfriend have been arrested.
    The missing women were last seen getting into a vehicle as they left the party. Police chief Jose Coello originally said they were not treating the pair's disappearance as a crime, but confirmed the four arrests.
    'Four people are under arrest. They include the owner of the party venue and Sofia Trinidad's boyfriend. They are being investigated,' Mr Coello said.

    She missed an appointment yesterday evening/on Sunday evening to try on the dress she hopes to win Miss World with.
    The women's mum Teresa de Jesus pleaded last night: 'Open your hearts and understand my pain.

    Sorry, forgot to include her sister (Sofia) in the title - maybe a mod could change it? Thanks!

    One of the detained, Plutarco Ruiz, is the boyfriend of Alvarado's sister, Sofia, 23, who also went missing with the beauty queen. Another being held is the owner of the business where the women disappeared, said police spokesman Lt. Joseph Coello, though he would not identify him.

    "Initially we detained 10, but six have been released," Coello said.

    The two women were last seen Thursday in a spa in Santa Barbara, about 240 miles (400 kilometers) west of Tegucigalpa, where they had gone to celebrate Ruiz's birthday.

    Hopefully they are still alive and will be released if in fact kidnapped.
    Don't mind the misspellings.

    Awful.

    A Honduras beauty queen was shot to death trying to flee after her sister’s boyfriend flew into a jealous rage at a birthday party held in his honor last week, authorities in the Central American country said.

    Plutarco Ruiz admitted to gunning down Sofia Trinidad, 23, after seeing her dance with another man last Thursday before he turned the weapon on her sister, Miss Honduras 2014 Maria Jose Alvarado, authorities said Wednesday.

    "They were not very astute about assessing the people around them. They were just friendly," the sisters' mother Teresa Munoz told Televicentro. "They were taken out by people they hadn't known very long."

    An accomplice, Aris Maldonado, was also being held. Sabillon said the two men allegedly buried the bodies near the river so they would decompose quickly.

    He said Ruiz allegedly shot his girlfriend, Sofia, because she was dancing with another man. After a fierce argument, he pulled out a pistol and fired at Sofia first, then at Miss Honduras as she tried to flee.

    Munoz said Ruiz called her the following morning, acting nervous and claiming the young women had left the party in a car with some other people.
