    AZ - Janet Castrejon, 44, Chiricahua National Monument, 19 June 2015

    Authorities on missing woman in Chiracahuas: 'We can't rule out foul play'

    After an exhaustive search for a missing and endangered woman in the Chiricahua Mountains with no answers, authorities are now investigating the possibility of foul play.

    Janet Castrejon, 44, was reported missing the evening of June 19. She was last seen in a remote section of the Chiricahua National Monument near the Arizona-New Mexico border, an area that is no stranger to human trafficking and drug smuggling, according to the Cochise County Sheriff's Department.

    "We're not focusing solely on the fact she may have just walked away," said Carol Capas, spokesperson for Cochise County Sheriff's Department. "We're looking into several possibilities that include the trail areas where smuggling is common. We can't rule out foul play."

    Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.

    "When from a long distant past nothing persists, after the people are dead, after things are broken and scattered, still alone, more persistent, more faithful, the smell and taste of things remain poised a long, long time like souls, ready to remind us, waiting, hoping for their moment amid the ruins of all the rest, and bear unfaltering in the tiny and almost impalpable drop of their essence the vast structure of recollection."

    The family is trying to raise awareness. They have set up a Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/findjanet The URL www.findjanet.org has been set up to redirect people to the Facebook page. They are asking people to use #findJanet on social media.

    The family was camping when she disappeared.

    Castrejon is partially blind and has the mental capacity of a 5-year-old. Her condition was caused by a traumatic brain injury sustained in a car accident when she was 18, from which she also suffered permanent memory loss.

    She has difficulty speaking, and has no vision in one eye with limited sight in the other.

    Castrejon and her parents are residents in Las Cruces, NM, where her father is a prominent family physician.

    The three arrived at Rustler Park Campground in the Chiricahuas around 1:30 p.m. on June 19.

    A few hours later, Castrejon and her mother left their RV and walked a short distance to the park's self-pay station, Capas said.

    After making a payment, Castrejon's mother stopped at a nearby restroom.

    Castrejon didn't need to use the facilities, so she told her mother she wanted to go back to the campground to meet her father.

    She never made it.

    Here is another article with some more info. http://www.abqjournal.com/602824/new...ping-trip.html

    A spokeswoman for the Cochise County Sheriff’s Office confirmed Monday that rescue crews suspended the search on Sunday evening. The crews have concluded that Janet Castrejon is no longer in the Rustler Park area, the spokeswoman, Carol Capas, said.

    “She does not appear to be in that mountainous area anymore,” Capas said. “We had significant number of resources in this search, and after being out there more than 72 hours, the crews reached the exhaustion phase. We will regroup and assess and stay in contact with the family.”

    Capas said authorities have entered Janet Castrejon into the FBI’s National Crime Information Center, which retains information on missing individuals until they are found. In this case, Capas said, authorities cannot issue a Silver or Amber alert because of Janet Castrejon’s age.

    ...Janet Castrejon’s cousin, XXXXXXXXXX, pastor of the Gurnee Seventh-day Adventist Church in Gurnee, Illinois, earlier told the Adventist Review that she went missing while hiking with her brother. News reports, citing local police, contained similar information.

    But the father provided a new timeline of events. He said he, his wife, and daughter arrived in a motor home at the Rustler Park campgrounds around 1:30 p.m. Friday for their third visit to the park. His wife and daughter took a short walk later in the day and his daughter decided to walk back to the motor home alone when her mother stopped in a restroom. She never reached the motor home.

    After searching the area and talking with other campers for some time, the parents grew increasingly worried as night fell and contacted their son. He, in turn, called the police.

    ...People have gotten lost while hiking in the U.S. West before. In November, a group of 15 young Adventists camped overnight in a remote California canyon after getting lost during a weekend hike. They were rescued by helicopter the next day.

    This is a weird and sad one. Why would she let her daughter find her way back to the camp herself? By these accounts, she was mostly blind, had short term memory loss, and the mental capacity of a child. Just ONE of those disabilities would be enough reason to keep an eye on her... why wasn't she asked by her mother to wait in the bathroom for her??

    “They’ve scoured the whole place. It doesn’t make sense," she said. "She can’t get far. She has limited vision. She walks very slow.”

    Every time I read about this woman's disappearance my mind takes me back to 2002 and the murder of seven year old Danielle Van Dam by David Westerfield. He had kidnapped Van Dam from her bedroom and killed her at some point inside his RV while roaming around southern California. So...I am curious if there were other RV campers besides the parents at this campground at the time and, if so, were these other campers questioned and their RVs searched by LE for Janet? I believe that I have read all of the MSM concerning this disappearance but could have missed something.

    This article explains where the story of her being out hiking with her brother came from: http://www.adventistreview.org/churc...ike-in-arizona

    Janet Castrejon’s cousin, Edye Campos, pastor of the Gurnee Seventh-day Adventist Church in Gurnee, Illinois, earlier told the Adventist Review that she went missing while hiking with her brother. News reports, citing local police, contained similar information.

    But the father provided a new timeline of events. He said he, his wife, and daughter arrived in a motor home at the Rustler Park campgrounds around 1:30 p.m. Friday for their third visit to the park. His wife and daughter took a short walk later in the day and his daughter decided to walk back to the motor home alone when her mother stopped in a restroom. She never reached the motor home.
    Her parents later called her brother, who called police.

    The family has set up a donation page to generate money for a reward. They have earned almost $10,000 already.
