Maria Maricela Astorga-Chavez
WVC Police seek assistance in locating missing woman
West Valley City Police investigators are attempting to locate a woman who has been missing since August 6th.
32 year-old Maria Maricela Astorga-Chavez (picture attached) was last seen the evening of August 6, 2015 when she got into a white Ford Expedition with a man known only as "Javier Huerta" (picture also attached). Maria's behavior leading up to her disappearance was out of character and we would like to make sure that she is ok. If anyone has information regarding the whereabouts of either of these people, please call 801-840-4000.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."
