Daisy García is experiencing the agony of not knowing where her 12-year-old son Juan Manuel Ruis García, who went missing leaving no trace the past July 4.


Daisy spends her days searching for any clue that might lead her to her son Juan, whom she affectionately calls “Tomatito,” but in many occasions, she feels she is losing her strength and just wants to cry, as El Diario reported.

The desperate woman wrote an open letter to her son, letting out all the feelings she has toward him. Read more on our Twitter account @amomama_usa

“Son, this letter I write you is for you to know how much I miss you and how I long for you since you haven’t come back home to me. I feel that my heart broke to pieces the day you went missing. I only want you to know if you ever read this letter, that I will always wait for you”, the letter begins.


“I really miss the times you got home and told me ‘mother, I love you so much” giving me a kiss in the forehead. Dear son, wherever you are I pray to God that you are well, my love. Your mom who loves you and will keep looking for you until we are together once again.”

-Daisy García, El Diario, October 3, 2018.

Juan left his home in the neighborhood of Melchor Ocampo, Ciudad Juárez, Mexico, on July 4, and hasn’t been seen since then.


The District Department of Public Safety and the Chihuahua State Attorney General have initiated different operations to find the boy, to no avail.

The teenager is 4.9 feet tall, has brown skin. He is thin, his hair is black and straight and his eyes are dark brown. He has a characteristic scar in his nose, similar to those left by chickenpox, and several birthmarks on his neck, according to Excelsior.


Daisy told El Mexicano that a friend of her mother allegedly saw her son in a public transportation unit begging for money to buy food, but when she looked for him in the place in question he wasn’t there.

The Attorney General has offered a $7.000 reward to anybody who can give information that leads to the finding of the missing teenager.



In August, another teenager went missing after she was separated from her tour group in the city of Arlington, Virginia. When the police followed the leads, they found the girl in the custody of none other than her own parents.

Less than a week after 12-year-old Chinese girl JinJing Ma disappeared after excusing herself to go to the bathroom, the police found her to be in Queens, New York.

The authorities had feared the worst after witnesses declared that she had left the Reagan National Airport in a car with a woman who had given her a change of clothes, but this woman turned out to be her mother.

The parents, who have been living in the US for two years, are fighting to keep their daughter with them in the country.
