Sisters Maritza and Marina have been missing since February 24


Peñitas Police Chief Roel Bermea said their families have been in touch with Mexican authorities, who are investigating their disappearance.

She wrote: “Today is day 16 and we still don’t know about my cousins Maritza Perez, Marina Perez and Dora Cervantes.

Dora Alicia Cervantes Saenz went missing alongside the sisters


“They have been strong, exhausting, desperate days without knowing what’s up with them, hard-working, honest women who have nothing to do with illegal situations.

“They only went to work. So far the FBI has joined their search after so many days of their disappearance, time is ticking and not in their favour.”
