    Mexico - Hugo Castro, 40, U.S. citizen, Mexico City, April 2017



    When activist Hugo Castro left his home in San Diego for Tijuana, it was just the most recent of his forays to help struggling immigrants in Mexico.

    He said he intended to join a caravan escorting Central American migrants on the dangerous passage north to the U.S. border.

    Castro has been reported missing to consulates of both U.S. and Mexico on both sides of the border, to the Mexican Human Rights Commission and to that country's national police.

    n his own 20-minute video, posted on Facebook Thursday afternoon, Castro says in Spanish, "I was threatened. They want to kill me," adding a short time later: "I need help. I need help."

    Castro's partner said she missed a phone call Friday afternoon but called the number back and reached a taxi driver, who told her that he had driven Castro to Mexico City. The American reportedly said he still planned to head to the rendezvous point for the immigrant caravan, in the town of Querétaro, which is about 130 miles northwest of the capital.

    "Castro's co-workers at the non-profit Border Angels said Castro had been visited by his partner, who confirmed that the 45-year-old was well, though receiving medical attention before returning to the United States."
